S A Vanar (1951-2021)
We will remember Appu Chithappah with love and great respect for his love for his family, his integrity, kindness, love of Liverpool football team, generosity, tenacity in the face of his illness and above all for his dry humour. He was a true gentleman.
He did not let things faze him and enjoyed life, traveling to places he wanted to see, spending time with family, attending family functions abroad (he was in the UK for my late father’s 80th Birthday) and staying in touch with many people across his personal and working life from the comfort of his arm chair!
He and my father would sit and chat for ages and their love and bond was strong from the moment he came to the UK. My father was very proud of Appu Chithappah’s achievements and the way he and aunty Indira brought up two lovely, accomplished daughters. Appu chithappah always took an interest in what my children were doing and was there for my younger daughter during her year studying in Malaysia.
We will miss his quizzically raised eyebrow and twinkle in his eye as he delivered his droll commentary or statement on life! We will miss sharing a meal with him. We will miss all the whatsapp messages, videos and cartoons on Brexit/Covid/Politics/Current affairs/Low carb diets/MAS offers etc.!!
Appu chithappah was one of our most favourite people on earth and he will be lovingly rememberd and very sadly missed. May his soul be at eternal rest.
Our heartfelt condolences to Aunty Indira, Anu, Bhavin, Suja, Rob, and all the family.
Aum Namah Shivayah, Shivayah Namah Aum.
