I saw Dr. Rasquinha in his East Meadow office one week ago. I was there to see about surgery for my left hip---my right hip he operated on beginning of June. He will be remembered as an excellent surgeon. I was well within a week of post-op and I am in my 60's. He was a commendable human being and my sincerest sympathies I extend to his family and friends. I am in shock over such a tragic loss!

I am so sorry to hear of Dr. Rasquhina's untimely passing. My heart was broken when I heard this news. My mother who is turning 93 on 12/13 has been a patient of this very kind, humble and talented surgeon. He performed her hip replacement in 2016, and we were very fortunate to have ended up in his most capable hands. More recently my mother fractured a knee, and once again she has been his patient. She shares a birthday with his own mother so we formed a connection. My condolences to the family.

Vijay Jude Rasquinha My uncle, Godfather and a great role model! When I think of my uncle Vijay, I remember all the memories of having my first with him. My first walk, first time I played soccer, first time I was introduced to bikes and cars, my first monkey cap, my first snow globe experience and many more. Another memory that comes to mind, is Vijay’s wedding day. How excited I was about being the page boy (ring bearer) for the wedding. I was so happy that he was getting married to Vaishali who instantly became my best friend the first time we met. Who knew years later, I would have 3 beautiful cousins who I would love more than anything as they were close to my heart. Also, to the fact I was fortunate to have spent time with them while they were growing up. I was fortunate to have spent parts of my childhood with him before he moved to England to pursue his education in medicine. Although, he wasn’t around all the time. His imprint never left me. I always learnt a lot about him through my teachers, brother’s at school, family members and friends. Through Vijay’s example, I was inspired to be a good person and always do the right thing. I am sure he was an excellent role model for many. He accomplished a lot in his lifetime. A true example of how to be the best version of one’s self. Now that Vijay is not with us. I know it’s a great loss for many. I know a lot of us are still coming to terms with it. All I can say is, remember Vijay will all the happy memories you all shared with him. Keep him and the entire family in your prayers. I know he is watching over all of us. I really want to thank everyone for being there for our family during these tough times.

I was Rasqui's batch mate from GSMC and KEMH Mumbai. My memories of Rasqui are of a wonderful person, always smiling, in the thick of things, a superb athlete (as evidenced in the photo with Rohit Shahani running a relay for our class). He would come to our lobby to revise surgery with our lobby friends. Very knowledgeable. We went our own ways after MBBS. The memories were re-kindled when I met Veena in Brisbane. Rasqui then joined our class Whatsapp group and ignited the batch during COVID lockdown. It is hard to believe he is no more. It will be hardest for Vaishali and the kids. My heart goes out to them for their loss. Time will reduce the pain and the good memories will bring a smile to your faces. My deepest condolences to the family. Rest in peace Rasqui!

Vijay has always held a vibrant presence, full of energy and enthusiasm, from the time we first met in 1983 at the start of med school. The orthopaedic residency saw him emerge as a very reliable colleague, a great team player, even beyond the sports arena, and a surgeon par excellence. It is no surprise to anyone that he was on top of his game as the Chief of Adult Joint Reconstruction. He touched many lives. Our recent happy hours during the lockdown will sadly never be repeated. Rest in peace Rasqui. You will always be in our hearts. Our thoughts reach our to Vaishali and the kids Rhea, Rohit and Ranjan.

To: Vaishali, Rhea, Ronit, Ranjan, I have never met you, but as a resident who trained under Dr. Rasquinha (class of 2018), I feel like I knew quite a bit about all of you. He would frequently bring up many of his children's accomplishments from swimming competitions, to an Amazon e-commerce store managed by a middle schooler! I am so sorry for your loss, as is anyone who ever crossed paths with him. Like myself, I know my residency classmates (Shachar Kenan and Yonah Heller) thought the world of him, couldn’t have respected him more, and learned an incredible amount from him – and for that he received the 2018 Arthur Weber resident appreciation award. Our training and preparedness going into practice was heavily impacted by him and I reference his thought process and techniques frequently. We had just texted back and forth a few weeks ago, as I wanted to thank him for how much his training had prepared me during a particularly tough case. Once again, I am so sorry for your loss. Dr. Rasquinha was an amazing person who will be greatly missed.

I reminisce the good times we had growing up with Vijay playing hockey, cricket, football, badminton and tennis. Growing up knowing his family, his mum who was a teacher in our school, whose sister was our teacher and his other siblings, friends with my sisters and brothers, I just can’t imagine the lost being felt by his family right now to have lost a great son and brother. To his wife and kids, just like Vijay gave to all of us, you have our forever support. Thank you Vijay for all you did but most for being a great guy and a friend. I don’t understand why Heaven needed you so soon but watch over us and continue to be a guiding light.

I am deeply saddened and heartbroken to hear of the passing of Dr. Rasquinha. He was a pleasure to work for. I would call him “Road Runner” as he was fast on his feet and talking. He would make fun of my Brooklyn accent. It was a privilege to know and work for him. He will always have a special place in my heart. My deepest sympathy to his family.

This is a great loss to the many, many people who knew this wonderful doctor. We had knee replacements and hip replacement and was so fortunate to have him perform those operations. He was a Master, a Rock Star in his field. More importantly he was so caring, and as patients realized that he was a special doctor. We send our prayers to his family and he certainly made this world a better place for so many using his God given talents.

Words cannot describe this loss. Vijay was a childhood friend who magically seemed able to excel at everything he did, be it academics, sports or every other extra-curricular activity he got involved in. He expectedly became the epitome of a fantastic surgeon and an amazing physician! We became closer friends just as he was starting his career as an orthopedic surgeon in Bombay. Being in the bio-medical sciences myself, Vijay shared a lot of his own knowledge with me...he soon became like an elder brother of sorts and I’m grateful we were able to keep in touch through all these years. As we search for answers today for the why, I can't but help cherish the memories of the last 30+ years and am grateful for what Vijay gave me and what he meant to me. My condolences to Vaishali, Rhea, Rohit and Ranjan as well as the entire Rasquinha family and his many friends around the globe. I wish you Peace and Strength during this difficult time. Thank you Vijay for all that you did and for all the patients' lives you changed. R.I.P. my friend, until we meet again.
