Kidar N. Vaid, of Brookline, passed away peacefully at his home, surrounded by his loving family on June 23, 2020. He was 91 years old. Kidar was loved and admired by all, and especially adored by his family. To know him was to love him. He was a hard-working man of honor and always put others before himself. He always showed great strength, kindness, and compassion, and will always be a true inspiration. This remarkable man was a pioneer who paved the way for many, and was a proud and very prominent member of the Indian community and will forever remain a beacon of light. He was a hero for people who struggled and tirelessly donated his time and money to those in need. An engineer by profession as well as a veteran. He will be remembered and his legacy will live on forever. Kidar was the dear and devoted husband of Chandar (Bhardwaj). Loving father of Kuldip Ken Vaid and his wife Ananya Vaid of Weston, Pardip Vaid and his wife Gretchen of Florence, and Jaideep Vaid and his wife Pareya of Somerville.

I came to know the great humanitarian Mr Kidar Vaid in 1983. A friend to all and in service to all who needed, Kidarji (as he was popularly called) was popular for his affectionate smile and cordial hospitality. He was a self-made man with success in his profession and prominence as a leader of the Brookline immigrant community. A lover of arts and music, he supported many artists at home and abroad through his benevolence and good will. The most important quality that endeared to him to all was his utter candor and straightforwardness in all interactions. His personality of truthfulness was ably supported by his dear wife who has been a virtue in religiosity and grace in life. Words are not enough to recant the kindness and the assistance the couple offered to all institutions and to all people they happened to encounter. We lost a noble soul!

A friend from long ago. From our meeting at the Mass Ave streetcar station to my visits at your home, meeting your many friends. My loving thoughts to Chandar and your family. Memories never go away.
