Rameshchandra “Ramesh” Joitaram Patel, age 72, passed away peacefully at his home in Billerica, MA surrounded by his loving family on August 8, 2021.
Ramesh is survived by his wife of 55 years Ramila Patel; son Sanjay R Patel and daughter-in-law Surbhi Patel with grand kids Jia and Jayan Patel; daughter Rajeshri Patel and son-in-law Nayan S Patel with grand kids Riya and Preet Patel; brother Bhagavan J Patel and sister-in-law Jaya B Patel; and a host of beloved cousins, nephews, nieces, grand-nephews, and grand-nieces.
Ramesh was born in India and spent a good part of his blessed life in the village of Morvad in the state of Gujarat. There he helped many local people with ayurvedic medicine. In 1983 he moved to the US bringing his family with him so they can have a healthy and blessed life together. He worked in many different roles in the US so he can educate his kids and provide for the family. In the recent years he was plagued with colon cancer for which he tried multiple treatments that were not successful.
He loved watching the Indian news on tv and reading it online. In the summer he enjoyed gardening and playing with the grandkids outside. His work ethic was second to none. He received multiple awards wherever he worked for his creative problem solving and dedication. He was genuine and humble as can be. He absolutely loved Indian food and especially simple traditional food. He did not like to procrastinate at all. Things needed to get done “today”. He liked to be clean shaven at all times. He was courageous and selfless giving up a respected profession and life to leave India and come to the US for an even better life for the family. He liked being independent and even in his last few days of life, he did any little thing he could do himself. His last wish was to donate his body and we are grateful to Science Care for accepting his body to help current and future generations.
