A noble soul and extremely popular squadron commander, Air Cmde KK “Joe” Bakshi passed away early this morning at Delhi. He had been operated on a few months ago at Delhi for a malignancy. Even so, he had committed to coming to Bangalore when again he felt unwell and had to be hospitalised at Delhi for the past few weeks
A thorough professional and an unassuming personality he was a down to earth man who cherished his family – his squadron was as much a family to him as anybody else. He will be remembered most for his zest and cheerful attitude to life, his professionalism, his unstinting loyalty to his squadron mates and the way he went out of his way to protect and shield them. In his eyes, they could do no wrong.
Our heartfelt condolences to Mrs Bakshi and his family members.
May his soul rest in eternal peace.
