In Loving Memory

Dr. Dhansukslal Mandalaywayla (Dr. Lal)

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we inform you that our beloved father Dr. Dhansukhlal C. Mandalaywala passed away on Monday, May 18, 2020.

We will greatly miss his generosity, love for his family, especially for his grandchildren and his sense of service to the community. He served humanity by helping those who needed help the most and who would tend to be helped the least such as the mentally challenged, those suffering from opioid addiction and the uninsured.

He is survived by his son Amol and daughter Anjali and their families.

The funeral was held in Manchester, NH at the Cremation Society of New Hampshire. Due to the pandemic, it was streamed live.

The 12/13th day memorial ceremony for our dear friend and ISW Volunteer Dr Lal will be held on May 30th. The 'barmoo' 'termoo' will be held on Sat, May 30th, at 10 am EST. The pooja will be held at home while the pandit will conduct the ceremony/prayers via Zoom. If you wish to attend, please join via Zoom using the following link:

It is with heavy heart and sadness that we share this news with you that Dr. Dhansukslal Mandalaywayla (Dr. Lal) passed away on May 18, 2020 at 4:45 AM at the UMass Medical Center due to complications of COVID-19 Infection.

Carolyn and I had known Dr. Lal for last 15 years when he started volunteering at the Free Health Stop at the India Center. He had been the backbone of our free health care services at the India Center. He was very caring, loving and a dedicated person to his family, his patients, and the profession of medicine. He had always gone above and beyond providing health care to his patients. He was a great teacher and a mentor to our medical students. Besides being a great physician, he was a loving father, grandfather, and a dear friend. He would be dearly missed. May God rest his soul in comfort and peace and give strength to his children, grandchildren, and all of us to cope with his loss. Memorial Services for Dr Lal will be announced later.
