Dr. K. Chakko Kuruvila




OBITUARY


We are extremely sorry to announce the sad demise of Dr.K. Chakko Kuruvila, son of our revered Headmaster, the late Kuruvila Jacob, on July 7, 2004 in U.S.A. Dr. Chakko Kuruvila was very keen to attend the Birth Centenary celebrations of his father, unfortunately fate decreed otherwise.

K. Chakko Kuruvila, a loving husband, father and, for decades, a physician in Colorado, passed away on July 7, 2004 after a five-year battle with cancer. He was 63.

A National Merit Scholar, Dr. Kuruvila studied at the Christian Medical College in South India, a school famed for its service ethic and commitment to public health.

He moved to the United States in the late sixties as a Fulbright Scholar, continuing his training in Nephrology, first at the Cleveland Clinic and later at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.

He returned to India in 1974 to work in Bombay, where he organized the first kidney transplant team and the first cadaver kidney transplant in India. Dr. Kuruvila returned to Denver in 1981 as a visiting professor at the University Hospital.

Thanksgiving Service

The family of Late Kuruvila Jacob is planning a Thanksgiving service on August 3, 2004 at 11.00 am in the memory of Mr.& Mrs. Kuruvila Jacob and Dr. Chakko Kuruvila for one hour at the St. George's Cathedral on Cathedral Road, Chennai.

All friends and wellwishers of the family are welcome.
