I am so sorry I just found out that Ramesh had passed. He was a bright light for all at MAC and a dear dear friend to all who knew him. I loved his infectious smile and his kind words always. He will be missed by all of us who knew him.

Ramesh was a good friend, co-worker of mine. He brought me into the industry and taught me a lot. Before his retirement, we went to ASHRAE meeting and dinner together every year. His smile face will be kept in my heart.

I would see Ramesh almost every morning at MAC when he was getting ready to play table tennis. His genuine smile and "hello" brightened my morning every time I saw him. So sorry for your family's loss. He was a kind soul and is definitely missed by many of us.
