Chicago IL: Dr. Chandrakant Govindlal Vasaiwala or Doctor Saab, as he was often lovingly called by friends and loved ones, earned his angel wings on April 9, 2012. He leaves behind a 68 year old long legacy full of cherished memories as a beloved husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, physician and benefactor of his community. After dedicating much of his life to caring for the sick and providing free medical services to indigent populations in Gujarat, India, Dr. Vasaiwala left behind his flourishing medical practice and large community of family and friends in order to ensure his children receive the best educational and career opportunities possible in the United States. In 1992, he relocated with his wife, Namrata, and three teenage children, Teresa, Smit, and Samip, to Chicago, where the fruits of his life’s labors blossomed as his daughter completed her Masters in Health Administration and twin sons completed medical school and professional trainings required to become practicing cardiologists at prestigious hospitals in Chicago and Boston.

While being remembered by all those whose life he touched as an amazing physician, community leader, husband and father, Dr. Vasaiwala’s greatest sources of pride and joy are the four grandchildren he leaves behind, Kush and Jai Nagrani (ages 6 and 2), Ayaan Vasaiwala (age 1) and Zahira Vasaiwala (age 1). The love and passion that Dr. Vasaiwala had for his grandchildren was perhaps never more evident than on the day he was formally diagnosed with advanced metastatic lung cancer in August 2010. During the days and weeks preceding his fatal diagnosis, Dr. Vasaiwala had been suffering from a chronic cough of which he feared the source may be tuberculosis. For fear of risking spread of this possible infection onto his family, Dr. Vasaiwala wore a mask at all times and withdrew from playing with his grandchildren until the source of his cough had been successfully identified. On that unforgettable day, Dr. Vasaiwala’s wife and children were moved to tears upon hearing that he indeed had no infection at all, but rather a life-threatening cancer. Meanwhile, Dr. Vasaiwala stood solemnly strong by his family, removed his mask and expressed relief that he could now resume playing with his grandchildren.

In reply to a question by President of Asian Media USA, Dr. Chandrakant M. Modi MD on how the family wants to remember Dr. Vasaiwala, his beloved daughter in law Ms. Sheikha replied on behalf of the family “We will always remember Dr. Vasaiwala as a kind, gentle, nurturing and incredibly giving soul. It is in this spirit that his family has requested that in lieu of gifts, those who wish to honor Dr. Vasaiwala’s life, to do so by making a contribution to Asha for Education to help fund scholarships and school supplies for underprivileged children in India.
