Bashem Coorg

December 17, 1939March 12, 2020

On Thursday, March 12, 2020, Bashem S. Coorg, loving husband, father, grandfather and brother, passed away peacefully at the age of 80 years old. Bashem was born December 17, 1939 in Bangalore, India. He completed a Masters in Engineering at Syracuse University and soon after married the love of his life, Jaya. His life was blessed with travel, adventure, friends and family. Some of his biggest joys were his children, IBM, and his video camera which he always kept handy to record the best memories. He was also extraordinarily humble. Bashem is preceded in death by his father, Sampath Iyengar, mother, Padma, step-mother Sharadha, and our family dog, Hershey. He is survived by his wife Jaya, daughter Rohini, son Vasanth, daughter-in-law Erin, grandchildren, bothers, sister, and in-laws. In lieu of flowers, please give a big hug to all of your loved ones and keep smiling in his honor.

Dear Jaya, and family, I am so sad about Bashem's passing. Such a kind soul, and he will be missed. Loved living in your neighborhood, seeing you all out for a walk, and just being positive and pleasant to talk to and laugh with. You have two wonderful children and now grandchildren, and I know you are a loving family. I will pray for peace to be in your hearts.

We are shocked and devastated by the loss. Uncle Bashu was so kindhearted and loving. I have some great memories of spending time with him at his house, enjoying his amazing Indian food, and celebrating family time together. When I got engaged, he was the first to call and wish us. Lots of love to Jaya Aunty, Vasanth, Erin, and Rohini. Until we meet again. โค๏ธ

Veena and I have fond memories of visiting Bashem Uncle and Jaya akka during our stay in Austin, TX. We would always be welcomed into their home in RoundRock with a bright smile. It would always be a pleasure spending time with them and playing with Hershey. Bashem Uncle and Jaya akka were very proud of how Vasanth and Rohini grew up to become excellent and accomplished individuals. We will always remember the first Thanksgiving dinner that we we had with Bashem Uncle and Jaya akka. Veena, Anirudh, and I would pray for his soul to rest in peace ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Those special memories of you will always bring a smile if only I could have you back for just a little while ! Then we could sit and talk again just like we used to do !! You always meant so very much and always will do too !!! The fact that you're no longer here will always cause me pain but you're forever in my heart UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN !!!!
