Vinod B. Kavety, M.D. passed away in Syracuse NY on 8/20/19. He was 81 years old.

Ever the trailblazer, Vinod came to the United States in 1962. Several years of medical education and hard work took him from Canada to New York City to the U.S. Virgin Islands and back again. He returned to India to marry and returned with his lovely bride in 1970. Determined to create a prosperous life for himself and his family, he worked tirelessly to succeed in everything he attempted. Eventually he settled in Syracuse, NY with Lakshmi and their two daughters.
For over 40 years, Vinod has touched countless lives. Opening a medical practice with Lakshmi, he practiced pediatrics until his retirement in 2004. The amount of children who loved him and were helped by him is countless. Vinod was respected immensely by all his colleagues who were proud to call him friend. Throughout his wonderful life in Syracuse, Vinod has been a pillar in the Indian community, beloved by all who were blessed to know him. 

Vinod is survived by Lakshmi, his loving wife of 48 years; and his cherished daughters Suchitra (Collin) and Vanita (Mark). He leaves a legacy of love and devotion to his adored grandchildren, Maya, Sara, Nate and Noah. Vinod is remembered as the patriarch of his large and loving extended family, nieces and nephews both in the U.S. and India. He is pre-deceased by his parents, his mother in law and his seven brothers.

Calling hours will be held on Friday, August 23 from 4 pm to 7 pm at Eaton-Tubbs Fayetteville Chapel, 7191 East Genesee Street, Fayetteville, NY 13066.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Golisano Children’s Hospital in Syracuse, NY.

Vinod will be very much missed at Petit Branch Library, where he was a volunteer income tax preparer after he retired. Many people asked for him as a preparer, year after year.

Our family's dear friend and our neighbor, Vinod showed a humor and patience with our children that give me a good idea of how special it must have been to have Vinod for a family doctor. He was a truly special person, and I feel grateful I got to share some fun times while he lived next door. Lakshmi, we are still, and will always be happy to call you our good friend and we trust you will call on us whenever you need anything at all. I think it would make Vinod happy if you will continue to make dosa for us once in a while, and of course, any time you need a ride in the van or need help trimming a high branch, I am your man. Lakshmi (and Suchitra and Vanita) I wish I could be with you this week. I send you my love from NYC. See you soon. Jim True-Frost.
