Prajwal Raj Kilari

Answer one question or many - using words, photos or other media.

What are your best memories of time together?

Gordon Toon
Too many good memories to count. Praj and I were randomly assigned roommates at UNC together, and I couldn't have asked for a better matchup. He was so crucial to my positive experiences at UNC that I can't imagine where I would have ended up without his consistently upbeat friendship and brotherhood. We ended up deciding to live with each other for all 4 years of undergrad, and I was selfishly upset that I couldn't continue our journey together with him up into NYC after graduation. Praj was the anchor for the larger group of guys that roomed together those same 4 years, and we will ALL miss his companionship and the endless stories he generated (and was often at the center of).

My mom and his mom are really close friends. As a kid, I used to hang out at his house whenever I would visit my cousins in Reno. I lost touch probably around middle school, but I have vivid memories of playing video/computer games as well as playing in the snow in their backyard as a kid. Dude was always smiling and so full of life, it's crazy. After reading these comments and looking at the photos posted, it's obvious that Prajwal was a positive and fulfilling force in the lives of all the people he ended up encountering. He was only 2 years younger than me. May he find peace.

I would typically bump into Praj while running to or from the restroom at work and I always appreciated his warm and thoughtful charm. Miss you Prajwal!
