As many were aware, Nagji had been battling brain cancer for the past seven years, beating it four times. Nagji was born in India on March 11, 1945; in 1969, he moved to the United States to attend the Michigan Technological University, which he graduated from with a Master's degree in engineering in 1971. Among many other things, professional and personal, Nagji was a dedicated business owner, loved by everyone, customers and competitors alike. He financed several other PCB shops through - out the United States. He was also a generous phi- lanthropist. From the Saturn Electronics website: "Nagji Sutariya spearheaded the efforts to build a world-class hospital in a rural area of India serving 450 villages and millions of travelers on the adjacent highway with no previous immedi - ate access to medical or dental care. The hospital was completed in March 2006 and now caters to anyone free of charge inclusive of medications and regardless of the ailment. This ef- fort was funded by Mr. Sutariya and his generous donors." Funeral services were held on Thursday, July 28 at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Cen- ter, in Detroit, Michigan. Many speakers touched on his many accomplishments in business along with his honesty and generosity. Nagji's two sons, Yash and Raj, remain as work- ing owners of Saturn and plan to continue embrac- ing the commitment to customer satisfaction their father instilled in them.
