CHAKRAVORTY, Dr. Aseem (Ashim) Prakash

March 15, 1924 – Calcutta, India
January 16, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

Dr. Aseem (Ashim) Chakravorty of Calgary, AB, passed away on January 16, 2019 at the age of 94 years.

He lived his 94 years to the fullest. At the time of his retirement in 2011, he was one of the longest-serving OB/GYNs in Calgary, having helped thousands of women with thoughtful and compassionate care, and delivering hundreds of babies.

Ashim was all of the things many of us aspire to be: Kind, intelligent, insatiably curious, and generous of time and thought, friendly and open, with an energy and wanderlust that never faded.

Dedicated physician, husband, and father, and a volunteer in the community, Ashim is survived by his wife Karin, and children Anita, and Jason, grandchildren Winston, Jacob, and Madison. He will be deeply missed.

The family wishes to express their gratitude to the staff of Rockyview General Hospital for providing outstanding medical care.

A private family gathering will be held at a later date. Should friends so desire, memorial contributions may be sent to The Women’s Center of Calgary at Condolences may be forwarded through

In living memory of Dr. Ashim Chakravorty, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB, T2X 3J3, Telephone: 403-256-9575.
