About Yash's Life

Yashvant (Yash) Bhatt passed away peacefully on 31 December 2020 at 6.50pm due to Covid-19 in the presence of his daughters.

Yash was born in Dar es Salaam in Tanzania on 11 January 1945.  Yash was one of seven children and had five sisters and one brother. He went on to study in India before moving to London in February 1968. He met and married Kiran in 1972 and they lived in Tooting in London before moving to Basingstoke in Hampshire. Yash and Kiran had two daughters Reshma and Chetna and were married for 20 years. In 1992, Yash moved back to Tooting where he spent the rest of his life.

Yash was very healthy and active and went to the gym everyday.  He loved going to the library and reading about politics (especially American) and discussing topical issues in the news.

Yash adored his daughters and granddaughters and was cherished by them. He had a big heart and his love, laughter and generosity will be truly missed.

May he rest in peace and may God rest his soul.
