Raghavan Iyer Obituary, Death – Raghavan Iyer, who had reached the age of 61 when he passed away on Friday, will be greatly missed by all of us, and during this difficult time, all of our thoughts and prayers are with the people who were closest to him. When he passed away, Raghavan Iyer had already lived to the ripe old age of 61. Over the course of the past several years, he has been a devoted friend to Open Arms, making appearances at events.
Volunteering his time in our kitchen, donating to and supporting our work, and most recently assisting us in moving the work of our Cultural Meals Program forward in a significant way. He has been of tremendous help to our company in many different ways. We are completely taken aback by how helpful he has been throughout all of this. It turned out that our conversations with Raghavan about the types of dishes that are traditionally regarded as “comfort foods” in a variety of countries were extremely illuminating.
He genuinely cared about ensuring that sick people had access to food that was healthy for them, and he was of the belief that this food, in addition to being appropriate from a medical perspective, should also be comforting on a personal and cultural level. According to his point of view, this particular style of cuisine ought to incorporate all three of the aforementioned elements. We are going to miss not only his incredible grin but also his friendship, the direction he provided, and the wisdom that he possessed. He will be greatly missed. We are going to suffer a great deal from his absence.
