Remembering Alexander Patel ‘18



Dear Harvard College Students,

I write to invite you to a memorial gathering in celebration of the life of Alexander Patel ’18. Many of us knew Alexander as a brilliant and supportive classmate, and as a true friend. His passing is being felt deeply in our community.

The service will be held on Wednesday, November 8 at 7:30 p.m. in Memorial Church Sanctuary. The doors of Memorial Church will open at 6:30 p.m. Following the service, at 8:30 p.m., the Adams House Faculty Deans will host a reception at their residence.

Both the service and the reception will provide the opportunity for those in our community whose lives were touched by Alexander to come together in reflection with his family, who will be in attendance. I hope you will join us.
