Obituary of Thakor Hajariwala
Please share a memory of Thakor to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Thakorlal Naginbhai Hajariwala, 76 years of age, passed away on Friday, December 11, 2020, at Saint Barnabas Hospital in Livingston, NJ. He was born on December 19, 1943, in a small town called Godsamba, Gujarat, India to the late Nagindas Nathubhai Hajariwala and Dhanuben Nagindas Hajariwala. He was the oldest of seven children. He married Prabha Thakorlal Hajariwala in 1972. He was the beloved father of Jignasa, Urvashi, Bhavin, and Devangi, kindhearted father-in-law of Jignesh, Nimesh, Asha, and David, and loving grandfather to Simrun, Shivansi, Alisha, Siyana, Ashika, Priyali, Hailey, and Ishan. Dada loved playing cricket, watching matches, and spending time with his family, and making everyone smile. He would make sure the whole family plays and laughs through the whole game. Even though we played so terribly, he would still cheer us on every time. He often enjoyed reading the Bhagavad Gita, praying for and with others, reciting the Hanuman Chalisa. He had a heart of gold and did not hesitate to help others. He often donated to charities like St.Jude’s Children’s Hospital and looked forward to making a difference in peoples’ lives. Dada did not want others to have to struggle as he did and tried his very best to help out in any way that he could. Dada taught us the value of education, money, and family in life. He always made time to listen to our stories whenever we needed him and his hands were always ready to reach out to us. We could always rely on him because he would always tell us how proud he was of us, even with the small achievements. He always taught us to think of how privileged we are to be alive and be surrounded by the people we love. Dada taught us that it was okay to make mistakes as long as we rise back up and learn from them. He was a faithful friend, protective brother, good husband, loving father, generous father-in-law, affectionate grandfather, and an honest selfless man. Dada spent his life ensuring the welfare and happiness of others. He was a hard-working man who was committed to whatever he did, and ready to give his all without a second thought. He was an inspiration and our motivation. From the age of 12, he started helping his father in the family business. Since the death of his father, Dada carried the responsibilities of the family and took on a father figure role for his younger siblings. At such a young age, he had to work incredibly hard to make sure his brothers and sisters didn’t feel the absence of their father. In 1987, he left his wife and young children in India to come to the USA, so he can give them a better life. For years, he stayed by himself and strived to support his family from hundreds of miles away. Even after being able to bring them to America, he worked day and night to make sure his family is well-taken care of. Even now, he made sure that each dollar was accounted for, because he knew the value of it and how hard people had to work for it. Our Dada left no effort to make us all smile. Whether it was joking with Ba, watching cricket matches with his kids, or partying with his grandchildren, he made sure we were all happy. Dada has supported us in every decision we made and gave wise advice to each of us. On behalf of his entire family, we would like to thank him for all of the sacrifices he has made and for all of the loving memories that he has left us with. His grandchildren all want to achieve different things in life, but we can all agree that we want to be like him. The respect that he has earned and the life that he has made is only something we can dream of. We hope to always receive his blessings and will try our best to continue making him proud. Dada is our very own guardian angel. We will miss our Dada very dearly, and we hope that no matter where he is, he is happy. But we know that he is not truly gone, because his memory will always continue to live on, in all of our hearts. We love you very much Dada.
