Alan Gadkari

June 8, 1963 — June 7, 2023

St. Louis, Missouri

Alan S. Gadkari, of Kirkwood, MO, passed away Wednesday, June 7, 2023 at the age of 59. Beloved husband of Sheryl Foster Gadkari; devoted father of Lauren Gadkari; cherished son of Sudhakar and Shalan Gadkari; dear brother of Sujala (Chris) Fry; treasured uncle of Corbin Fry; loving cousin and friend of many.

Alan was a passionate person who could find joy even in the simple pleasures in life such as having a conversation, spending time with those he cared about, or watching television, often sports. His interest in sports expanded when his daughter enrolled at the University of Iowa. He quickly became an avid University of Iowa sports fan. Rarely did a day pass when he was not attired in Hawkeye wear. He had a personality so big, people gravitated towards him, and they enjoyed being in his company. Alan never met a stranger and always made friends wherever he went. Married shy of 30 years, he provided Sheryl with laughter and entertainment. To his only daughter, he got to spend almost 20 years watching her grow and supporting her through it all.

Alan was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
