The love of my life, my best friend, and loving father, Amit passed away unexpectedly early morning on October 25, 2018. Amit served as a guiding light for many of us and cherished each and every one of his family and friends.
To all of us, he was a leader, an innovator, and a true entrepreneurial spirit. He will be missed by so many. We ask that you keep our family in your thoughts and prayers as we endure this most difficult of times. He will be missed dearly but we are resolved in his kindred spirit and irrefutable zest for life. The positive impact he has made on our lives will remain forever.
Please write a personal story so that Connor and Brandon can get a glimpse of their dad in the future when they are ready to read about him and the lives he touched.
Amit was truly an extraordinary individual both professionally and personally. While our relationship with Amit was social, his professional accomplishments did not go unnoticed. Like everyone who knew Amit, we were incredibly proud of his achievements in business and enjoyed celebrating these successes when we were together. Yet, despite his incredible resume, Amit was extremely humble. He had the unique ability to make anyone and everyone feel special. After spending time with Amit, we always left feeling inspired, valued, and respected. Amit cared about people. He genuinely took an interest in people’s lives, and made them feel important. We loved that about Amit. Amit also had an amazing sense of humor. He loved to laugh, and we will miss hearing his distinctive chuckle.
We are so grateful for having shared so many wonderful experiences with Amit and his family throughout the years, and will cherish our memories of this wonderful man. He has left a lasting impression, and will continue to inspire us throughout our lives. We love you Amit, and miss you dearly.

The firm was virtual, with consultants based out of their our home offices, and we would only meet up at client sites. On my first project with the firm, I flew into Boise, Idaho, to met my colleagues for the first time. There were four of us - Amit, Victor Prince, Paul Wedeking, and me.
Funny thing is, we were trying to develop an Internet strategy for a company that made paper. Really! The company owned forests full of trees for pulp, factories to make it into paper, and warehouses and trucks to store and deliver it. Amit loved the irony that the Internet would someday make the world paperless, and we were developing an Internet strategy for a paper company!
The project was fun, but the four of us hanging out was even more fun. Amit stood out for being the youngest, smartest, and funniest person in the team, and we'll all miss his smile, his laugh, his brain, and his heart!
