Siddhartha passed away on February 9th, 2021 with his parents and uncle at his side, ending a long and brave fight with multiple bouts of Leukemia.
Siddhu was a loving and cheerful boy, always spreading his warmth and smile around. He had a huge positive impact on the people he met. Even during the tough and arduous journey for the past few years undergoing chemo, he was always smiling and always funny, cracking jokes with the doctors and the hospital staff, they had to protect themselves from his Dinosaur and Snake bites while near him.
He was the strong one in the family whose positive spirit helped mom and dad cope with the tough times. “Don’t worry, I am feeling better already” was his go to line. He went through the treatment like a champ always positive and hopeful. We would sorely miss his “Dino School” where his dinosaurs taught us about dinosaurs and science and his carnivores vs herbivores fight games for the silver crystal. He had a huge passion for Dinosaurs and wanted to become a paleontologist when he grew up.
He is survived by his loving parents Sireesha and Madhu, grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins.
