Surendra Shetty passed away on Tuesday at around 9 am at his Versova residence. It is being said that he had a cardiac arrest. Surendra was later rushed to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, where he was declared dead.

The poem reads:
Loving and kind in all his ways,
Upright and just to the end of his days;
Sincere and true, in his heart and mind,
Beautiful memories, he left behind
A link in our family chain is broken,
He has gone from our home
But not from our hearts.
We love u Daddy, you have been the best father , husband, friend and soul..
May you Rest in Peace. Shri Surendra Dejoo Shetty 22 Dec 1941-11 Oct 2016
