Kishore Tulsidas Mansinghani passed away peacefully in his home on Friday, November 11, 2022. It is with great sadness that his wife, Shanu and children share the news that their dear father and husband fought a brave battle against cancer and now joins his father, Tulsidas in eternal peace.
Kish first came to the United States, in the mid 1960's, where he started a family in Montana and had his first two children, Tony and Jaymi Marie Mansinghani. Then, Kish started his family life in Laredo in the early 80s and quickly became a prominent business leader in the community. He and his wife opened their first business, La Fabrica de Oro, and made a successful life for them and their children.
It was there where he touched so many lives, including the Sacred Heart's Children's home, United Way, The Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Jaycees, and the Laredo Indian Association which he co-founded and served as president for many years. This is one of the many ways he taught his children Jahan, Tina, and Prakash to be virtuous and charitable in life. Our family could not begin to explain how important each and every single person he met meant to him.
Kish was preceded in death by his beloved father, Tulsidas Mansinghani; his mother, Bhagabai Mansinghani; his nephews, Danny and Haresh Chandiramani; and most recently his brother-in-law, Jaikishan Budhrani.
He survived by his devoted & beloved wife of 45 years, Shanta Kish Mansinghani; his children, Tony (and his wife Denyae) Mansinghani and their two kids Anthony & Allí, Jaymi Mansinghani, Jahan Mansinghani, Tina Kish Mansinghani, Prakash Kish Mansinghani and Chris Mansinghani; his siblings, Maya "Shalina" Budhrani, Suresh T. Mansinghani, Miru Monte, Bina (and her husband Renato) Penaflor, and Ashok (and his wife Gloria) Mansinghani; countless nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews. Vanita & Phil Parker, Jay Budhrani, Roshan & Claudia Mansinghani, Mithun Mansinghani, Gabi Monte, Papu Monte, Dheena Mae Monte, Brandon Penaflor, Daniel Penaflor, & Seth Mansinghani; great nieces and nephews, Maya Budhrani, Katelyn White, Joshua Mansinghani, David Mansinghani, Nathaniel Mansinghani, Harry Monte and Eleanor Monte. He is also survived by many members of his wife's family, whom he loved dearly including Poonam Chandiramani and her children Karishma Gurbani & Chandani Lalwani.
His greatest contribution and desire were to always give back. He continuously quoted Baba, "love all, serve all." Therefore, his life mantra became "Service to others, is service to humanity." Kish was a long-time devotee Shri Sai Narayan Baba of Panvel, India.
In his continued spiritual journey, Kish, along with Dr. Hansaben brought the first Brahma Kumari program to South Texas area in the 90's.
