Ramniklal Parikh

February 17, 1930 — April 24, 2022

Ramniklal Parikh, age 92, of Aberdeen, Maryland passed away on April 24, 2022 at home. Born in Sojitra, Gujarat, he was the son of the late Amrutlal and Jashoda Parikh.     


Ramniklal is survived by his wife, Nirmalaben Parikh; children, Pravin Parikh and his wife Deena, Narendra Parikh and his wife Rita, Mahendra Parikh and his wife Daxa, Mayuri Shah and her husband Bipin, Vandana Majmudar and her husband Mayur, and Tarlika Sheth and her husband Suresh; grandchildren, Bhavin Parikh and his wife Bhumika, Mitul Parikh and his wife Reema, Sapna Shah and her husband Kevat, Ravi Parikh and his wife Monali, Premal Shah and his wife Pooja, Payal Martin and her husband James, Ronak Majmudar and his wife Becky, Sagar Sheth and Chandni Sheth; great grandchildren, Aarav Parikh, Jeeya Parikh, Ayush Parikh, Shay Parikh, Samay Shah, Himani Shah, Priyal Shah, Adira Martin, Veda Martin, Ella Majmudar and Niam Majmudar; one brother; 5 sisters.


In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by 3 brothers.


 Bachubhai grew up in Sojitra India, where he was part of a successful family fabric and Sari business.   In his community, he was well respected and known for his personality and known by all as “Mutabhai” (big brother).  


Around town and even later in life, he was known as the grandpa that always had a pocket full of candy to give out to the kids (and kid like adults) around him.


Later in life, his eyes would light up when he would tell his grandkids about the difficult traveling to far off cities by rail in search of finding unique items to sell at the shop, and then having to physically carry them all back with him.  Even in that struggle, he always made time to bring something back for his kids.


At the age of 60 he probably made one of the biggest decisions of his life. He left the comfort of his homeland and immigrated to the United States.  He did this just so he would be able to give his children and grandchildren the opportunity to make a life in the United States. He went from being the shopkeeper to our Dada who was always around to talk to and relax with.  Wherever he stayed, he would touch the lives of his grandchildren 


All our friends and extended family knew Dada and would enjoy talking to him when they visited, and he became a fixture in all of our lives.  He also made sure that there was a little vegetable garden wherever he stayed and spend countless hours taking care of the vegetables that we were so proud of.  In the evening he would spend the time playing cards with Ji (his wife) or enjoying a comforting game of Solitaire. He was sure to wake up early to watch Cricket games and sometimes even watch baseball with us in the evenings.  


Until his last breath he was at the side of his wife and Nirmalaben and they sweetly looked after each other during their 70+ years of marriage.  From small things such as enjoying their afternoon coffee breaks together to finding a way to gently tease her, just to enjoy being a little naughty, they were made for each other.
