Rashmi J. Shukla

March 5, 1953 to April 25, 2021


Our amazing Papa passed away on April 25th very suddenly. How do you write this? Papa loved us so much- unconditionally with love, warmth, and direction. He made our mom Sudha so happy and loved her in an immense way personal only to them.  As Trupti says, it is an absolute honor to be his children, to be raised by such a powerful man of integrity, principle, kindness, and love. He did everything for us and helped complete strangers in huge, life changing ways. He is our hero- coming to Canada with little and accomplishing so much, all humbly and taking care of us so well in the process. He has family and friends all across the world that love and respect him. He will join his father, Jayendra, and our mother, Shridevi, in peace. Left to love him on Earth are the Jani, Trivedi and Shukla families, his mom, Kanta, his brothers, and sisters, Daxa, Renu, Dilip, his grandchildren, Sahil and Siddharth, his children, Trupti and Niraj and his beloved wife of 28 years, Sudha and the countless people that encountered his love and enormous benevolent presence everywhere – at MUN, in India, at Cash & Carry, Colonial, all across the US – everywhere. We love you Papa – and we will live every day in your honor. Forever, in our hearts, we love you. To send a message of condolence, please visit www.carnells.com.

My sincere condolences to Rashmi’s family and friends on his sudden passing. He lived in my neighbourhood for as long as I can remember and he always had a wave and a smile whenever I would see him. My thoughts and prayers to all of you during this difficult time.

On our very first meeting, it was apparent that we were blessed with a true gentleman into our family..

A real family man, kind soul and loving husband is how we will remember Rashmi and his true admiration and undeniable love for his family and friends. His character, charisma and attention to detail is something that shone through many a day and will still continue within his children Trupti and Niraj.

We will miss you very much and in particular I as we shared a love for ‘old movie songs and will reminisce how we spent many a hour discussing how ‘songs were songs’ back then.

Rest in peace ‘Guru’

Jai Ambe

Trupti Niraj Sudhaben Ba and family! Our prayers with u on Demise of Rashmibhai! Mala Masi and family

A huge loss to the University Centre community. Sudha, Trupti and Niraj please know that he is looking down on you with that smile. His love will carry on through you all. He had a beautiful spirit, deep values in family and a respected presence in the UC. I will miss seeing him and having our talks – about business and family (first and foremost he always wanted to know how my family was doing). I’ll never forget when he met Simon for the first time and Simon just wanted to go with him right away, no hesitation just pure trust and hugs. XX

As Trupti keeps saying, truly cannot believe he is gone. As his youngest sister in law I had self earned right to complaint to him, why he has not been calling but now that he is gone I wish I could just hear his voice one more time. He was the most wonderful father to both Trupti and Niraj and his legacy lives on thru both of them. Always willing to help anyone who asked and at times even without asking.
He was just a great fan of Indian classical music and had such deep appreciation of instrumental and vocal classical music that rubbed off on me and I am so thankful for that.. You will be greatly missed by everyone in Jani family,, only solace we can get is you are with our sister ????????

Niraj and Family,
Myself and Ed were so very sorry to hear of your father’s passing. We met him on a number of occasions over the years and remember what an interesting and kind person he was. It is hard to lose someone you love — but keep in mind he will remain alive forever in the stories you share and the memories you have. Our thoughts are with you. Sue & Ed Hickey

Trupti, Niraj and Aunty Ji.
Our prayers and condolences to you and your family. We will miss Shukla uncle very much. He was a gem of a person, very humble, kind and understanding. He will be deeply missed by everyone.
May Waheguru rest is soul in eternal peace.
Guru, Satinder and Family

My deepest condolences go out to all who loved and cherished this man. He was an amazing person. His kindness and compassion for everyone was evident in everything he did. My heart is so saddened and broken to hear of his passing and for his family. It was an absolute honor and pleasure to know him. He always went out of his way to come see.me everytime he came to the village mall. He will be deeply missed by everyone who knew him.

Sudha, Trupti and Niraj,

Your words were absolutely beautiful, just as Rashmi was himself. I remember the first time I met him, he was so sweet and soft spoken and I immediately felt like I had known him my whole life. He will be missed by so many. My heartfelt condolences are with you and your family.

Kimberley Butt

Niraj, Trupti, and Sudha,

What a beautiful tribute to a legend. You are right to say ‘How to write this?’ — because how to do justice to such a big life in such a small space? I will remember Rashmi as a quietly powerful force, as a loyal and trustworthy and generous friend, and most importantly as a resilient and strong family man who loved deeply and fiercely. These are traits of his that are now yours to hold and carry forward. This is a loss that is reverberating far and wide. I am so deeply sorry for your pain and will be praying with you in the coming days.

All my love,

Our prayers and condolences to you and your family.. He was a great and respected business partner . We are here whatever you need

Manchu Wok Team

Trupti, Sudha Bhabi ji and Manji.
Our prayers are with you all, every moment, please do not hesitate to call on us at any moment of the day or night..I feel some part of me gone, missing. He was a gem. Will Always be with us. Harjinder, Rani and Bilkhu family.
