Sanjiv was the keystone and foundation of everyone. It could be anybody from friends, family members, colleagues and neighbors. Sanjiv lived a simple life and didn’t want too many celebrations but cared for the wellbeing of others. He conveyed the message that people do not have to have a fancy house, a fancy car and fancy life to be happy. His interest in others’ lives was expressed with sincerity and marked by humor with an often grin and unable to rest until everyone else is content and happy.

Sanjiv was the one who made it a family tradition to always have barbecues. As a family, he got everyone together to have them each time at the three houses, his brother’s and his sister’s place each time. In each barbecue, he always asked everyone if they were having fun. He always loved to be around others. Though, Nalin was the life of his parents, Sanjiv loved babies and wanted to hold Nalin first. He would stand outside the baby nursery for multiple hours waiting to hold Nalin. He wanted to be the first. He used to bother the doctors and nurses every five minutes.

Sanjiv A. Patel was a psychologist who passed away unexpectedly on May 30th, 2019 at the age of 55 at home.

Sanjiv was born on June 15th, 1963 in Cincinnati, Ohio to mother Usha Kiran Patel and father Arvind Jashbhai Patel, who predeceased him. Sanjiv grew up in a loving family with a sister and a younger brother in Bergenfield, New Jersey.

He graduated with a double master’s and a PhD degree from; Indiana University, Fairleigh Dickinson University and The New School of Psychology in Child Psychology. He began his practice as a clinical psychologist and devoted his career in working with young children and troubled youth. Sanjiv was a driven professional with an unparalleled work ethic and in his personal life.

Sanjiv married Jayashree Singh on December 1st, 1996 in New Delhi, India. Then returned to the United States and first resided in Somerset, New Jersey, Sanjiv’s life transformed and the embodiment of his very being with the birth of his beautiful daughter Kahini on July 21st, 2003. Eventually, they settled down in Doylestown Pennsylvania.

Sanjiv was loved and respected by everyone, his colleagues, his friends, his neighbors, family and those he did not have a direct relationship with yet was always talked about fondly as a vibrant, passionate person full of life. He was a very cheerful and humorous individual.

A memorial service will be held at 11 am on Sunday, June 2, 2019 at the Varcoe -Thomas Funeral Home, 344 North Main Street, Doylestown, Pennsylvania, 18901.

I’m just learning this sad news. I worked with Sanjiv for many years in community mental health. He was a sweet, gentle, inspired therapist with the utmost respect for the young clientele he saw in treatment. I’m sad to know his gifts are no longer available for those who needed him. I remember when he was getting married and then when his daughter was born. He positively glowed with love! I wish to extend my heartfelt condolences to Jayashree and his daughter too. His memory and his smile will remain with me always.

We definitely lived, laughed and loved in Gainesville. There are definitely a field full of memories that will last forever. Whether it was going canoeing at Lake Wauburg, rolling down the hill at the Reitz Union, attending a GATOR football game, visiting Kirti Mama (which thanks to Sanjiv he was dearly called- even now) at his farm, driving to Clearwater in the middle of the night to see JD and Shreena, or planning a prank on everyone (including hanging in a tree on a lonely road outside of Gainesville in the middle of the night), you could always find Sanjiv in the middle of things with a smile on his face.

In Gainesville, we were all making our way in the world – a quote from one of our favorite shows- Cheers. What an amazing world it is because Sanjiv was a part of it. Whether it was studying in the stacks at the library in Gainesville, taking a break playing racquetball, or riding on his motorcycle, Sanjiv was always the one with a smile on his face and an antidote to take your worries away (again a quote from the Cheers theme song).

He will definitely be missed but we will remember him with a big smile on our face for all the times he allowed us to take a break from our worries. We will “always be glad that he came!”- (another quote from the theme song of Cheers).

Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Patel family.

From a dear friend from Gatorland- Asha Vaidya

I am deeply saddened to hear of Dr. Sanjiv’s passing and I offer my sincere condolences to his family. I know you will sorely miss such a wonderful and loving presence in your lives. In this time of unimaginable grief, you can find great comfort in the hope for the future found at John 5:28,29, "The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice [the voice of Jesus] and come out." The resurrection that this Bible verse talks about will give us the opportunity to see our lost loved ones again. I know it will be a joyous time when you can reunite with Dr. Sanjiv! I invite you to visit JW.ORG for more information on this comforting hope.

Dr. Sanjiv Patel was a fifteen year veteran doing pre-parole work for CFG. He was always dependable, reliable, and an ethical mental health professional took great care that his work was done carefully and properly, adding to an improved understanding of those he served. Most of all, he was always pleasant, kind and considerate, his humanity showing through in his interactions with co-workers and those at the various prison sites. His presence will be sorely missed. Our heartfelt condolences are sent to other friends and colleagues and to his family and loved ones that must feel devastated by his sudden passing. May his memory be a blessing for those who knew him.
