I will always have wonderful memories of Prabhu at our Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter family gatherings at Ravi and Judy's home in Natick. Chandrika and Prabhu also hosted a lovely Thanksgiving family gathering at their home in Natick. May he be at peace with Chandrika.

Prabu was an absolutely wonderful and kind man. I had the distinct honor of working with Prabu on several nuclear power plant projects, as an electrical engineering colleague, through many years at Stone and Webster followed by several years at the Big Dig. I always remember his great professionalism and highly admired his wonderful ability to consistently make others feel good about themselves. I will miss Prabu greatly.
