Vinesh Vincent Raj, aka Vinnie, passed away on Monday, May 25, 2020, at the age of 38.
Vinnie, a high-school Valedictorian, obtained his Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from Cal State San Diego, Masters in Mechanical Engineering from Cal State Los Angeles and was working on obtaining his Doctorate in Engineering. For the past 5 and half years, Vinnie worked for Jacuzzi, Inc. and in recent years also joined the faculty of Cal State Los Angeles as an Adjunct Professor in Engineering.
With all these accomplishments, one would never know that Vinnie was also undergoing a rigorous dialysis treatment of 3 hrs/day, 4/days a week.
Vinnie is survived by his mom, Sashi, step-father Richard, father Ajay, step-mother Janet, sister Ashween and nieces Destiny and Starla. The family wish to thank all those who knew Vinnie and brought joy to his life. The family also requests that you share photos you may have of Vinnie that we may include and share in the photo slide during the memorial.
The family welcomes you to the viewing, cremation and church memorial service for Vinnie beginning on Sunday evening, June 7, 2020, from 3- 5 pm at Ullrey Memorial Chapel, 817 Almond Street, Yuba City, CA 95991.
After the viewing, you are welcome to join the family at the Sri Guru Nanak Sikh Temple located at 2269 Bogue Rd, Yuba City, CA 95993.
On Monday, June 8, 2020, the memorial and cremation service will commence at 10 am. The chapel will allow a small number of people inside of the chapel and the remaining will be allowed to walk through and pay their respects.
After the service, the family welcomes everyone to join for lunch and closing services back at the Sikh Temple on Bogue Rd.
