Obituary for Prashant Kothari

Prashant Kothari, 54, departed for his Heavenly abode on Saturday, November 23, 2019 after a long and brave fight against cancer. His loving family surrounded him.

Born in Chennai, India, to parents Bhanuchandra and Jaya (Shah) Kothari, Prashant earned a bachelor’s degree from Nagpur University. He was in an Executive position at HTC Global Services, where he began his software career 25 years ago.

Prashant met Kalpana Dhamani through family friends and the two married in 1994. Shortly after, the newlyweds relocated to Ann Arbor, Michigan, which they have called home for 25 years.

An avid lover of nature and wildlife, Prashant was happiest walking down nature trails, taking photos, and sometimes capturing a memorable moment in a painting. However, Prashant’s passion was taking care of family- his very own and extended. He was always thinking about how to do good unto all, putting others before himself.

A devoted husband and a loving father, he will be deeply missed by his wife of 25 loving years, Kalpana; his children, Mohan and Mallika; his little sister, Yogita; and innumerable friends and colleagues whose lives he touched in his unique quiet way.

A visitation will be held on Sunday, November 24, 2019 from 1-4 pm at Nie Family Funeral Homes, 2400 Carpenter Road, Ann Arbor. All are welcome.

My deepest condolences to Prashant’s family. I have had the privilege of working with Prashant on several State of Michigan projects over the years. He was bright, professional, well-liked, and filled with integrity. He brought with him an aura of calm no matter how challenging the situation. I will miss him and his big smile. Prashant, you have run the race and fought the good fight. May Heaven be paved with the most beautiful nature paths one can only imagine. RIP my friend.
