Its a loss we can not share in words. Your smiling demeanor and calm nature is what I would always remember when I think of you.

Dear Vibhav,
I still can’t believe that you are no more with us. You’re my team lead and manager in my journey in Marvell and NXP.
You are a very professional, friendly person and a good mentor. You’re there to clear all my doubts and ready to discuss about any issue irrespective of time whether it’s related to work or not. You have a great knowledge in verification and you’re always ready to share it with the team. You rectify my mistakes and you’re also very eager to learn from the team as well if you don’t know that part.
I admire you the way you play TT and you’re a champ.
May your soul rest in peace and I pray god to give strength to your family.

Our prayers are with your family. I pray to God to give enough strength to your family in this tough situation.

Dear Vibhav,
When I saw the sad new in that weekend early morning, I thought it was just a nightmare. Unfortunately, it was real and I just realized we lost a great leader and very talented engineer. The group lunch photo when you were in US has brought back some good memory when we first met face to face in Marvell building.
We all missed you so much, but I am sure you are in another parallel world where there is no sickness and sorrow but only have peace and joy.

I never thought that I have to write such msg, but one thing for sure and we need to accept that life is fragile, and we can control only a few things.
I have many great memories associated with Vibhav as we used to talk every day (lunch break, coffee time… ) on technical and non-technical things as well.
He was a unique person full of knowledge, not only on technical fronts but also on non-technical front. He was not just a technical mentor to us, but we used to know many things from him on politics, sports...
We together travelled to the US (Marvell) in 2018, That was my first visit to the US, in fact, first visit to any other country, as I had never travelled out of India before.
The travel plan was decided suddenly, in interest of project closure. But that time, I remember, Vibhav helped me and guided me a lot in each and every aspect, AMEX card filing, booking air tickets, booking US hotel tickets ect. The things went so easily and I never felt any difficulty in that trip throughout.

Thank you to Vibhav for all that !!

Vibhav ... , I will definitely miss your company

This time is to pray for Vibhav to Rest In Peace, and also pray almighty to give great strength and courage to his family to bear the biggest loss.
Stay safe and more importantly stay Strong !!

I was so shocked and saddened to hear about Vibhav's passing. When I first heard Vibhav got ill in our weekly meeting, I thought he will recover soon. It's still hard for me to believe that he passed away.

Vibhav and I worked together a lot. He knows the work very well and helped solving a lot of challenging issues.He is really a nice person and a professional and reliable team contributor. I also met Vibhav in person several years ago when he visited USA office. We used to talk about delicious Indian food during lunch time. The memory is still vivid now.

To Vibhav's family, I can't imagine the sorrow and the pain you have been through. Please take care and stay strong. May Vibhav rest in peace.

The news of Vibhav's death has come as a great shock; it has happened all so quickly. Vibhav was one the hardest workers I had ever met and it was this work ethic that led to his success in his carrier life. I will miss him as a friend as well. We worked for the same company, client and project in 2003 also ( from different locations ) . I pray Almighty God to give enough strength to his family members to overcome this situation. May his soul rest in peace. A loss to many of us.. a great human being and a fabulous team member ,will miss you. ... I pray to god that his soul will remain in peace.

Dear Vibhav,

In this saddest time there a silver lining that you are at a better place.

But mostly, since the loss of you, I’ve learned a life can be taken in the blink of an eye.
And only Heaven really knows when that person will have to say “Goodbye.”

Rest in peace.

Dear Vibhav,

Its hard to believe you no-longer with us. Your can-do attitude and taking challenges to closure with utmost quality, brought so much momentum to the way of work, its just un-stoppable. Your smile and infectious compassion of execution are always in my heart. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with your beloved ones. Wishing you peace.
