In Loving Memory of Vishwanath “Vish” Kelkar 9/6/1934 to 3/14/2015

New VKelkar in

By Vasudha Kelkar

My husband passed away in India peacefully, while being surrounded by many of his Kelkar family members.

Born in Shriwardhan, Maharashtra, he grew up in Thane and attended M.H. High School. He graduated from VJTI, Mumbai in 1958 with BE, Civil Engineering.

Subsequently he worked for BEST until 1965 when he ventured out west to England. Earlier we had married in 1961 in Mumbai and then lived in England for many years. Later, both of us migrated to Houston in 1979 where he worked for Bechtel, Kellogg, etc. for many years.

During our stay in England and Houston, he actively supported many social groups to promote Indian cultural activities and particularly Classical music.

Out of this love and dedication, he was instrumental in forming the India Music Circle of Houston and later was an active member of the ‘India Music Society of Houston’ (IMS) for many years.

A memorial service was held in Houston on Sat., March 21, in remembrance of ‘Vishubhau’.
