In lieu of flowers, the Bhakta family invites you to contribute to a cause dear to their hearts, the Esophageal Cancer Aware Association, created in memory of Dahyabhai Dhirajbhai Bhakta.
With great sadness, we announce the passing of Dhayabhai D. Bhakta (Valod), born on June 13, 1940, in Surat, Gujurat. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Urmilaben (Orna), his three children Vidyut, Lina, Pina, and seven grandchildren.
In March of 2021, Dahyabhai, at the age of 80, was diagnosed with stage four esophageal cancer (EC). Every 40 minutes, someone in the US is diagnosed with EC, with 1 in 5 Americans having at least one leading risk factor. Unfortunately, this cancer is not easily detected; therefore, to honor his memory and spread awareness, we humbly ask for your help. For more information, please visit https://www.ecaware.org.
The family kindly requests not to travel to attend the funeral but to pray from your home and join the services virtually.
