Dr. Subash Ramchand

NIAGARA FALLS —  

Dr. Subash Ramchand passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family on October 8th after a brief illness. Subash was the loving husband of Linda for 43 wonderful years, and his passion in life was the family they created together. He was the proud father of his three sons Nikhil, Sunil, and Rajeev; and his beloved grandchildren, Ella, Ethan, and Lily. He is remembered fondly by his children-in-law, Katie, Michelle, and Patrick; his brother, Devinder, sister-in-law, Shantu; and their daughter, Anjali and family; as well as his three sisters, Neena, Vijay, and Rita and their families. Subash enjoyed a circle of close-knit friends in the Lewiston-Niagara area where he practiced medicine for 36 years. His family, friends, doctors, nurses, and other providers cared for and supported him while he was hospitalized.
When their hometown of Quetta erupted in flames during the partition of India, Subash at age 10 and his brother, Devinder, were given some money by their father who wished them "good luck" and told them to make their way to India. Not only did Subash find India, but he ultimately found and graduated from Grant Medical College, University of Bombay in 1961.  He left home for New York to specialize in Pathology and was later hired as the first ethnic minority professor at Queens University Medical School in Kingston, Ontario where he met the love of his life, Linda. He then did a second specialty in Dermatology at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit and came to Niagara Falls in 1976, where he made Lewiston his "home away from home." He maintained a thriving dermatology practice in the area where he was supported by a loving team of nurses and staff, and cared for many of the area's residents and their children until his recent hospitalization. Subash passed away with fond memories spent with his young children at Stella Niagara Education Park and summers on the golf course at the Niagara Falls Country Club. Most recently, he enjoyed spending time with his family in Washington, DC, where all of his sons make their homes, or traveling the world with his wife - he called their visit to Israel in 2010 his "favorite."
