Honoring Mr. Vas Choudhry’s life-long devotion to philanthropy and children’s education
Vas Choudhry or Just Vas to friends. Vas Uncle to Children around the Bay Area. Tau ji, Vas Chacha, Vas Mama to all the kids in the family has left a void in the hearts of all family and friends.
Integrity and service were his Defining Characteristics. He was always there for any and everyone. Whether a longtime friend or a neighbor down the street he had just met. Eager to lend a helping hand. Vas was known to push people hard to succeed—at work, on the soccer field, at the ping-pong table, or with family members and friends. He saw all of us as what we were capable of and wanted us to be our best. At the same time, he never gave up on people. In moments of sadness or frustration, Vas was ready to offer advice or encouragement, often in the form of handwritten notes on his favorite yellow-lined notepad paper. It is said that some people in life are gardeners, and Vas literally put in the work to help us all grow. And of course, he loved gardening in his backyard too, proudly sharing all kinds of fruit from his garden.
Vas cared deeply about the world around him. He volunteered for many causes, including the Association for the Development of Bihar [AODB], which provided needed health care to poor communities in India. Over time, as he saw his brother, Umesh become active in Ekal Foundation, he became increasingly supportive of Ekal. Even in his last days, he would ask us to "remind me to write a check for Ekal" .
Now this campaign 'reminds' us all and honor his wishes. We have no doubt that your efforts in making this campaign successful will please him immensely.
With Immense Gratitude, the Choudhry family
