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.

Talk: Krishna Saraswat

Ashok was my roommate while we were students at Stanford. He was a thorough gentleman with a perennial smile on his face. In my association of over 4 decades with him I never saw him angry. He was a great scholar, an innovator, a deep thinker and a natural leader. He exceled in everything he did, whether it was academics, sports, or anything else. His knowledge was wide and deep. You could discuss almost anything with him and he would be able to go in depth even if it was not the area of his expertise. Whenever I got involved in a discussion with him eventually I had to agree with his viewpoint. He and Mala were a perfect couple, made for each other. I cherished his friendship. We will miss him a lot.
