Dr. Khurshid Khan transitioned peacefully, surrounded by his family, on November 15th, 2020 in New Britain CT. He came to this country with his wife, Dr. Bilqis Khan in 1956 from Pakistan as a former physician in the Navy. He and Bilqis worked as physicians in Boston and Westfield, MA. Later, he worked in Shelton CT, and then at Cedar Crest Hospital in Newington CT. He began a successful private internal medicine practice in New Britain, CT in the 1970s. He is survived by his wife, Bilqis Khan, three daughters, Naween, Khan, Shirin Khan and Sarah Khan, his loving son-in-law’s Lance Tatro and Henry J Drewal. And his four grandchildren, Huma Moid, Omar Moid, Harris Moid, and Zane Tatro.

The youngest of seven, he left a large and kind global network: a sister, nieces and nephews, and their many children, and cousins. His longtime friends, particularly the Pakistani-American community, became his family. The Shafi, Qureishi, Toor, Jilani and Malik families and their children provided a sense of home and community in the northeast USA from the late 1960s onward. He paved the way for many Pakistanis who arrived after 1965, thanks to the Civil Rights movement. And he stayed with us, just a little longer, so he could exercise his constitutional right to vote.

On November 16th, 2020, a service was held for the family at the Islamic Association of Greater Hartford—Berlin Mosque. After the ceremony, he was buried at the Garden of Peace Cemetery in Cheshire CT. He would have loved that you give to the organization of your choice that cares for others. He gave to many, and in particular, the American Civil Liberties Union, in his final years. A memorial is scheduled when it is safe to gather.
