It is with great regret I share the following announcement: We are sad to share that Bharat/B passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack early this morning. [27 June] If you would like, you are more than welcome to attend the funeral at Morrison’s Funeral Home in Henderson commencing at 12.30pm Saturday 30th June. Thank you for your kind words, messages and prayers at this time. Love Mamta, Roshani, Manisha, Sachin, Sonil and the Mehta Family.
Bharat will be known to many of you through his career in the insurance industry. Bharat worked at Sovereign and Colonial in marketing, at Asteron Life as head of product, Westpac, and also as a financial adviser. He was also a fierce competitor on the sports field. He loved cricket and typically opened the bowling and would bat at three or four. I remember fondly the day he scored a century at Victoria Park, batting with a nasty cut to his cheek. His family meant everything to him, and recently I was very glad of his advice on the raising of children. Roshani, Manisha, Sachin, and Sonil each reflect so much of the best of both Bharat and Mamta. A great friend, who knew how to look after his friends, he loved all of life and knew how to live well. My deepest condolences to Mamta and the Mehta family.
