WALLINGFORD - Vikram “Vik” Nath, passed away at Yale New Haven Hospital on December 29, 2021, with his family by his side. He is survived by his devoted wife, Shawn A. Newton, and his two loving children, Anjali and Archana Nath.
Vik was a true character and a man of many facets. The outside world was blessed with his light, his fun spirit, and his love. He spent his life supporting and bringing joy and laughter to those around him. Within, he was deeply spiritual. While he did not broadcast his faith, he was steadfast in his beliefs and stayed close to God through daily prayers and the actions of his life with those he loved. He was also full of fire and could burn bright and hot.
Vik’s roots are deep and far reaching. He began his life in Mumbai, India and he and his family lived all over the world with his father leading the journey. His family and childhood friends remember Vik’s free and mischievous spirit. Even then, he could not be forgotten. After college, he came to America and started his career and his family with the mother of his children, Serita Nath, first in Pennsylvania and then settling in Westchester, New York. In his career, Vik developed and managed IT networks all over the world. In retirement, he spent many of his days dominating the tennis courts with his fierce serves, topspin, and slices, always making sure to elicit laughter with his jokes between sets.
Vik’s life had many winding roads through which he always worked to find more meaning and peace. Along this journey, Vik met his wife, Shawn. They spent the next 27 years of Vik’s life as true partners, lifting each other up in good times and bad. Shawn’s down to earth persona anchored Vik’s larger than life character. They spoke to each other through art and beauty and shared their love with family, friends and the many rescue animals that were able to finally find warmth and peace in their home in Connecticut.
Vik always wanted the world to be beautiful and his heart just wanted to love and to nurture. His energy could not be contained and would come bursting out of him. Every soul that crossed his path was touched by his kindness, love, and passion for life. Not one person who met Vik left without a story of both tenderness and amusement.
Vik’s fire remains burning bright within us all and we will forever miss the magic of his laughter, the warmth of his smile, and the fullness of his heart.
