Chicago, December 28, 2021: On the morning of Friday, December 17th, – lovingly known as Deepak by his family, was crossing the street in Irving Park to catch a bus for work when he was tragically killed in a hit-and-run.
Deepak’s family describes him as a hardworking man, devoted husband, father, son, brother, and friend. He leaves behind his two young children, Aarav and Kenit, ages 10 and 4, and his loving wife, Amita.
He was also known as a hero and guardian angel, having once saved the life of a child who had fallen from a three-story balcony. Hearing cries in the bushes Deepak found the boy and immediately called 911. The life-saving incident took place four years ago at the same intersection where Deepak was killed.
As the sole provider of the family, Deepak’s passing has left a financial toll on his wife and children. His brother Amitkumar Chaudhary has set up a GoFundMe to pay for funeral expenses, bring their mother to the United States from India, and help support Deepak’s family during this difficult time.
“Deepak worked hard to give his wife and children a beautiful life, and another person’s recklessness took that away from them,” said Attorney Larry Disparti, whose law firm, The Disparti Law Group, the family has retained for help. He adds, “The Chaudhari family chose my law firm to help them navigate this uncertain time in their lives. We are committed to getting them the justice they deserve.”
The family is asking the public to come forward with any information on the accident.
“Any help and support will mean the world to us. We will forever be grateful for all of you who have been a part of Deepak’s life. Deepak loved everyone, especially his friends and his co-workers. He would do anything for the people he loved. Deepak left us too soon,” says his brother, Amitkumar.
