We are deeply saddened at the passing away of our Charter Member Dr. Tawfiqul Alam Bhuiya.  He passed away on Sunday, 13 December.  Dr. Bhuiya was Chief Resident and Vice-Chairman of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, Long Island Jewish Medical Center. He was also a Professor at Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell.  
A very gentle soul, Dr. Bhuiya would have turned 64, on 17 December. His loss is a devastating blow to the local Bangladeshi community.  Our Club Members are deeply saddened at the loss of one of our Charter Members. 
Our deepest condolences to his bereaved family and friends.  Dr. Bhuiya's amiable presence will be missed by all. May his soul rest in peace.
