Aneish Rajiv Shilpan Patel

August 26, 1987July 30, 2020

Aneish Rajiv Shilpan Patel was born to Ushma and Shilpan Patel on August 26, 1987 in London, England. He departed this earthly life on July 30, 2020 and has left a huge hole in all of our hearts, but his legacy lives on in our memories eternally. As an organ donor, he has selflessly given life to others and will live on; his gift will not save just one life, it “saves the world entire."

Aneish loved his family, Britt, and his friends with a fierce, unconditional love. He was passionate about music and loved the Grateful Dead. He was an avid Manchester United supporter and shared his love of football with his brother, cousins and friends. He will especially be missed by his loving and ever-present Bodhi. Aneish saw no stranger. To him, every new person was a part of himself he did not yet know.

Aneish received his elementary education from Homefield Preparatory School in England, his high school diploma from Carmel High School, and went on to Purdue University, and later graduated from Indiana University with a bachelors degree in Health Administration.

We find peace in the fact that Aneish now joins his maternal grandparents, Nataverbhai and Kusumben Patel, and paternal grandmother Pushpaben Patel in eternity, all of whom could not have been prouder of their beloved grandson. He is survived by his loving parents, Ushma and Shilpan, brother Rikesh, girlfriend Brittany, grandfather Jitendrabhai, uncle Shailesh (Devika), uncle Kalpesh (Minoti), aunt Prashula (Brian), aunt Prayna (Sanjay), aunt Vina (Sanjay) and cousins Rishan, Shanil, Alex, Ashlinn, Sonal, Neal, Leeya, Caleb, as well as Jack (Deanna) Scheidt, Jason, Lauren, Matt, Al, Matt, and countless other family and friends.

Aneish would want you to celebrate his life every time you listen to a special song, eat a yummy meal, catch a good game, cuddle your dog, and hug your loved ones.

I remember his pure soul . Working with him was always a pleasure . One day I realized he had been absent from work and when he returned , I asked him where had he been and he had told me he was out of work due to Achilles surgery . That was the first time I had ever heard of that.

I remember being asked to go to bone thugs concert while I was in Jamaica . I was so happy when I found out him and Brittany we’re going ! He will truly be missed. Rest Easy my friend. ❤️

I have worked with Aneish for almost 3 years at GHCC. He was kind to anyone that he came in contact with. I appreciated his humor. He was doing an amazing job as an Administrator and I was very excited to see what he would accomplish as he lead the team. He is greatly missed at GHCC. My condolences to Britt, family, and friends. Rest easy my dear friend.
