Jayram D. Patel, age 68, of Eastlake, passed away peacefully on April 15, 2014. Mr. Patel was born December 8, 1945 in Savli, Gujarat, India, and grew up in Nadiad, Gujarat, India.
He came to America in 1967 and resided in Detroit, Michigan, was married in 1972, and moved to Ohio in 1973. His academic achievements include a Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering, a Master's degree from Wayne State University, and an M.B.A. from Case Western Reserve University.
Mr. Patel, a highly revered chemical engineer, served in invaluable capacities for The Lubrizol Corporation of Wickliffe for 40 years, before retiring in 2013, and was highly regarded for his work and unparalleled talent and intelligence.
He was a founding member of the Gujarati (Indian) Community in Cleveland. He will best be remembered for his devotion to his family and friends. He provided an open home, tremendous support, and a helping hand to many of his family members when they too immigrated to America. His wife and children, who love him dearly, know him to be the best husband, father, and grandfather, and are infinitely thankful to him for all their happiness and success. He was especially fond of children, and one of his greatest joys was his grandchildren. His religion was of great importance to him and he was strong in his faith.
