Ronak Patel

Ronak Patel

It is with very heavy hearts, we announce the sudden death of Ronak Patel (Calgary).  He went to take care of his beloved grandma, Savita Patel, on Wednesday May 19th at the age of 25.  Ronak was born on July 13, 1995 to caring parents Kalpesh and Smita Patel in Calgary.

Ronak was a selfless and loving son, nephew, cousin, uncle, and friend. He did all he could to make sure those who were closest to him were always happy. To have known Ronak is to know a willing adventurer, an aspiring dentist, a car lover, a dependable IT consultant, an advice giver, a witty jokester, an entrepreneur, and a lover of the finer things in life. Ronak was a lifelong Calgary Flames fan and would proudly wear a red jersey five out of seven days in a week as a kid growing up.  Ronak loved getting together with his family and friends and would always be the first to organize a trip.

Ronak is survived by his parents, Kalpesh and Smita along with a big extended family including Sharda Baa, Masis, Masas, Kakis, Kakas, Mama, Mami, many cousins, nieces, and nephews. His life was a blessing for his family. Ronak was loved beyond words and will be missed beyond measure.

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free,

I’m following the path God laid for me.

I took his hand when I heard his call,

I turned my back and left it all. 


I could not stay another day,

To laugh, to love, to work, to play.

Tasks left undone must stay that way,

I’ve found that peace at the close of the day.


If my parting has left a void,

Then fill it with remembered joy.

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,

Ah yes, these things I too will miss


Be not be burdened with times of sorrow,

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My Life’s been full, I savored much,

Good Friends, good times, a loved one’s touch,


Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your heart and share with me,

God wanted me now, He set me free.
