Satyen was always and everywhere a beloved Indian man, married to a German lady, and a respected engineer who made this country his home. He loved Indian music and food, Tagore songs, cooking and people.  He enjoyed to travel for family, and at home his garden,  his knock-out roses and vegetable patch, and  feeding the birds. Satyen lived a life of quiet loving dedication to his wife, children and grandchildren. His gentle kindness and caring,  his telephone calls to  family and friends will be missed here and across the world. He was where we are, now he is everywhere we are. Instead of flowers, please donate to any organization of your choice that feeds the poor.  Memorial services will be held at Christ our Shepherd Lutheran Church, 101 North Peachtree Parkway, Peachtree City, on Thursday, April 25, 2013, at 3 p.m.
