Rakesh Dewan

August 30, 1959 — March 4, 2023

Rajan Dewan , a name derived from Sanskrit that means KING. He was definitely a king, a king of Hearts .

Some called him Rakesh , His brother called him Bantu , his niece and nephews called him Uncle ji , and his daughters called him PA . A man of few words but feelings ocean deep, Rajan had a way of comforting others with his presence. His aura was full of spiritual positivity and calmness. He went an extra mile for people he loved and cared for.

Let’s not forget his witty sense of humor! And love for cooking and feeding anyone and everyone. He was as sweet as the honey he put on his peanut butter sandwich every morning. He loved jamming on MJ, watching Jackie Chan along with some Indian Classics. Even the family dog, Chico, loved him dearly due to his radiating soul.

Rajan was a complete delight and selfless human that he would give the shirt off his back to keep you warm.

Rakesh is survived by his two beautiful daughters, Divya and Taniya Dewan, his brother Rajesh Dewan and his family. They hope to carry his legacy and cherish his memories forever and ever.

Lucky were we to have him in our life. Now I know why they call it paradise – for souls like Rajan dwell in there.
