Nilesh Hasmukhlal Patel Obituary
Nilesh Hasmukhlal Patel January 20, 1982 - August 29, 2012 Nilesh Hasmukhlal Patel was born in Birmingham, England on January 20, 1982 to Taraben and Hasmukhlal Patel. Growing up, Nilesh shined in his artistic abilities and had a strong passion for drawing and art. In 2005, at the young age of 23, he was diagnosed with Huntington's disease. He graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Graphic Design from the Art Institute, Santa Monica in 2007. After the diagnosis, the years ahead of Nilesh's life were both physically and emotionally challenging; however, he remained true to his character - strong, optimistic and always concerned for the well being of his family. Nilesh was a caring person who loved to spend time with his friends and family. He enjoyed watching Laker games and the latest Bollywood movies. He often dreamt of his favorite actress, Madhuri Dixit. On August 29, 2012, a loving and cherished son and brother was called to be one of Gods angels. He passed away at home with his family by his side. Nilesh is survived by his parents Taraben and Hasmukhlal Patel, brother Hiren Patel, and sister-in-law Rema. Funeral services will be held at Greenlawn Southwest Mortuary at 10 a.m. on Friday, August 31, 2012. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that a donation is made to the Huntington's Disease Society of America or on our personal page at nagoholics.com. We love you, Nilesh and may you forever rest in peace. www.bakersfield.com/obits
