May 25, 1962 to November 13, 2015
53 years & 172 Days
We at Patel & Associates, would like to say thanks to all the friends and families for their messages in this time of our loss.
‘My Master,’ is what I called him. He really was a Master who taught the team at PAL and those who worked with him in his professional journey of more than 30 years.
He was a person of perfection and ensured that he delivered what he promised.
He started the firm of Patel & Associates Limited in 2001 but practiced as a Chartered Accountant for more than 25 years.
He was bestowed with the Certificate of Membership by the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants for over 25 years in May 2015.
He leaves a legacy and we at PAL promise to continue his legacy.
He was a man of many talents, made friends very easily and was always there for them when they needed him.
He had a heart of gold and enjoyed sports. In particular Soccer was his favourite sport and he was a true ‘Team Nadi’ supporter.
He always said ‘Green Machine, Nadi, My Team.’ And fittingly he was bid farewell with the Green Jersey in his corpus.
He loved listening to music and was there with me during all events and would say, “Master, don’t worry I am right behind you.”
He was the pillar of strength for Patel & Associates Limited and did exactly what he wanted. He had a road map to add value to all the clients and go that extra mile to assist them in growing their business.
Those who knew him, could call him any time of the day or night and he would assist them in every way possible.
On behalf of his family, in particular Mrs Usha Patel, Sheena Patel, Siddhant Patel and Sahil Patel, and the team at PAL, Nilima Sahai, Monark Panchal, Rashmi Patel and me, I would like to ask you all to help someone else who really needs your assistance.
In doing this you will do a favour for JAY.
In conclusion, we would like all your help and support to allow us to continue this Legacy at PAL.
