Jaideep Rajesh Kandyil passed away on September 21, 2020 at 5:56 pm in Dallas, Texas, USA with his loving wife Bindu and his adoring mother beside him. Jaideep was born In Kozhikhode, Kerala, India on April 29, 1969 and was the only and very beloved son of Damodaran and Jaya Kandyil and caring brother of Roshni.
As a boy in India he loved spending time with and growing up with all of his cousin brothers and sisters and loved playing at Arangadath house in Quilandy, where his paternal grandmother Narayini lived. At the age of 11 he moved to the USA when Damodaran decided to take his older brother Achuthan’s invitation to embark on a great adventure in the United States in order to provide a better future for his children.
As a young boy in the United States he started playing the violin and a profound love of music was born. He mastered many instruments, the piano, guitar, harmonica, and was an excellent singer. He and his friends formed the rock band Om, and enjoyed playing together for many years. He was also one of the star players on the Dallas Dynamos, the Indian soccer team that Damodaran coached.
He went to college at University of Texas in Arlington and studied to become a computer science engineer and he worked for American Airlines and The Dallas Morning News for almost 5 years. He then moved to Garland ISD and worked as a Network Engineer for 20 years.
He lived in Dallas for 37 years and made many life-long friends along the way. He was loved by everyone for his kind, gentle heart. He was selfless and generous to everyone that crossed his path. He was a traditional Indian at heart and loved India and all his family there and visited every chance he could get.
Jaideep was married to Bindu for 12 years and had two children, son Kanna and daughter Jaanu. He loved being a husband and father and his face would always light up when he talked about his wife and children. One day when Damodaran was asked by Jaideep what his legacy was, he said “my legacy is standing in front of me”. His parents could not have been prouder of him. He was deeply loved by his family and friends in the USA and India and will be missed. We were lucky to know him and he will be in our hearts forever.
