Hemant Bhonde, 65, died in the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma on May 20.
Bhonde was a kind man who made friends easily and would do anything to help anybody out.
He took refuge from the storm with h is wife, Jerrie. The couple waited inside the shower, clinging to each other as the tornado destroyed the couple's home.
Jerrie Bhonde remembers that suddenly, the couple's bathroom disappeared.
"Walls were hitting me. I was knocked on the floor," she told NBC News from her hospital bed, where she was recovering from her injuries.
The couple's daughter, Geeta, described her father as "a generous, caring man."
"Funny, silly, I mean, give you the shirt off his back, literally. The best guy you'll ever meet," Geeta told the news station.
