Obituary of Samit Kurtish Dharia

Please share a memory of Samit to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

In loving memory

On June 19th. 2024, Samit (Sam) Dharia, loving son of Kurtish and Jignya Dharia, older brother of

Shikha, and partner to Samantha Jayawickrama passed away peacefully at home in Niskayuna,

NY after a courageous battle with cancer.

Samit was known for his caring, funny, and loving soul.  He loved skiing, traveling the world, and

spending time with his precious family and friends.  He graduated from Cornell University with 

a BS in Industrial Labor Relations.  He later graduated from Northwestern's MMM Program with

a MBA degree and MS degree in Design Innovation.  He loved his work in finance and 

technology, and following his favorite sports teams.

Sam also cared deeply about helping others no matter his own circumstance.  He found

fulfillment in supporting other cancer patients going through the same battle as his own.  He 

also loved his international volunteer trips.

Samit will be greatly missed by his loving family and friends and will always be remembered  in

their hearts.  The impact he made on all of our lives will forever remain.

We are sincerely grateful to the many family and friends who have given us support and comfort.
