In Memory of Dr. Ananthakrishna Venkateswaran
Dr. Ananthakrishna Venkateswaran, aged 92 passed away peacefully on August 5, 2022. Originally from Kottayam, India, Dr. Venkateswaran completed his Ph.D in Physics at BITS Pilani (India), after which he married his wife, Indira. He came to Ottawa in 1967, and since then has touched the lives of so many people in the community. Though he leaves behind a legacy of brilliant work as a Research Scientist with the Government of Canada, his true passion was always in learning about all religions, as a devout Hindu. Additionally, he was a phenomenal cook, feeding anyone who didn’t know they were even hungry! He reveled in the accomplishments of his three children, their partners and his six beautiful grandchildren whom he held most dearly. Instead of flowers, please share donations in his name to the Ottawa Mission, as he always loved taking care of the people in his community.
