In Memory

A living site in memory of Ashok K Chandra to remember and honor him. A man with a golden heart and an extraordinary mind. A cherished father, husband, and friend. And a doting grandfather. He left us November 15, 2014 after a brave battle with cancer.

The site features the sentiments and memories shared by friends and family. Feel free to send this site to others. We will keep adding to it; if you have something you’d like to share, please click here to send it to me.

Remembrance: Moshe Vardi

Losing a parent leaves a void that cannot be filled. (I lost my father two months ago, but he was 87, rather than 66.)

I "met" your father through his work in the late 1970s, when I was a PhD student. His work inspired much of my early research. He, together with Larry Stockmeyer (who passed away from cancer about 10 years ago), were among my early "heroes". Later I joined IBM Research and was fortunate to work direcly with him: When he moved to IBM Almaden in the early 1990s, he bcame my direct manager, until I left IBM in 1995.

I always considered your father to be one of the smartest person I knew. His intellect was just awesome.
