Let the memory of Madhukar Bhai be with us forever
  • 82 years old
  • Born on September 24, 1927 in Bhavnagar, India.
  • Passed away on June 28, 2010 in Amdavad, India.


A beloved husband, father, father-in-law, and grandfather, Madhukar Mehta passed away in Amdavad on June 28, 2010 after a brief illness.  He is survived by his wife Uma, sons Sushrut and Utpal.

He played the hand he was dealt and had no regrets. Always played by the rules, he was proud of his achievements and satisfied with his life, and he always had a smile.

We will remember and miss him forever.

Our thoughts will be with the family on this sad day, however we will focus on the many good times and many treasures that Madhu shared with us that so greatly enriched our lives.

The adage that time heals everything is sadly not true. The pain of Madhu's loss is no less today than four years ago. Today is my wife, Pat's, birthday and while we celebrate, we also have moments of silence and sadness for the loss of our dear friend. We extend our love to Uma and the family.

Happy birthday dear Daddy....today we took Priyanka to her college. It was a very trying day emotionally. She prayed by your picture before leaving. Do keep her safe and watch over her. We miss your smiling face,

I met Madhu in 1958 when we both entered FSU in Tallahassee seeking a Ph. D. in physics. We bonded quickly, I appreciated his kindness, honesty and vast knowledge of India's history. Eventually I married and we became lifelong friends with Uma and him. They had a lasting impact on our lives. Madhu's passing was very painful for us. He was a great friend and scientist, irreplaceable.

So, as I was saying earlier, Ro has taken Math and Biology as his majors. He is also moderating quiz bowls for high schools and can get very competitive at times. Your granddaughter, Priyanka, is another character. Strong minded and very sure of her opinions. She is also very kind and helps out all her friends by tutoring them and helping them in the subjects they could use help with...

We had the privilege of knowing Shri Madhukarbhai in brief meetings. He was a unique combination of high intellect, warm heart, natural sense of humor, and gentle attitudes. May God give him peace.
