Aman Vaja

A life that touched so many hearts will be forever remembered.


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Aman Vaja, a beloved son, brother, nephew, uncle and friend. Aman, aged 50, from Leicester, passed away on 3rd April 2024, surrounded by his loved ones.

Aman was known for his kindness, generosity, and sense of humor. He was a family-focused man who always put the needs of his loved ones above his own. Aman had a passion for cricket and football, and was a devoted Tottenham Hotspur fan. He loved cooking, and his delicious meals brought joy to all who had the pleasure of tasting them.

Music was another passion of Aman's, with a special love for Bhangra and Bollywood tunes. He could often be found whistling to his favorite songs, bringing smiles to those around him.

Aman will be deeply missed by all who knew him. His memory will live on in the hearts of his family and friends.

Rest in peace, Aman. You will always be remembered with love and fondness xx

Still in absolute shock of the very sad news in the recent passing of Aman.

Just like others have mentioned, Aman was a colleague and friend who I met in 1996. He was the ‘cockney geezer’ from Leicester.

Spurs being his number one love (after a curry and a few beers). Always the smiler in the room. He lit it up any conversation. His personality and love for people kept that light shining bright.

Our lives took us our own way but the WhatsApp messages continued to trade, which now will be forever missed.

You were taken way too soon but I am sure you will always be beside us all.

Rest in peace my brother.

It’s taken a while to process this loss and it still feels surreal a month on. I can’t believe we won’t come to bannerman and see you, go to craddock, or spend Diwali together (but obviously you’ll be there in spirit / taking a selfie from heaven!).

It’s so clear over the past couple weeks the impact you’ve had on other peoples lives and how you always made time for family and friends. You’re an inspiration to us all - we should all be living life this way and celebrating the time we have together - I definitely will be!

It’s been a pleasure to be part of your life story and an even bigger one from you being in mine. Rest in peace Aman bhai. Love from, Simo xxx

Aman was not just a friend, but was family. He had obviously touched the heart of many people with his happy and cheeky persona. He shocked us all with his sudden departure and left a huge hole in our lives.

We became friends in college even though we weren't in any classes together and ended up living together at Uni for four years (without any issues). As long as I have known Aman, he has never been in any confrontation with anyone. He had no hate, just love and happiness.

A musical soul, often singing and humming his favourite lyrics from any song. He had a diverse taste in music from Blur to Bollywood to Bhangra.

Words fail me without sounding cliche. He will be missed and you will always remain in my memory mate.

Sleep well and God be with you. JSK. Peace out Fella, Om Shanti.

Aman was my dearest friend and confidante. He was always there for me and a fiercely loyal pal. Over the years, Aman has shown me endless support and guidance, pure kindness, an abundance of patience and selfless love. He had a heart of gold.

He was a great companion. I will miss so much about him; his daily messages, meals out, comedy shows, our unfinished walks and of course a beer at the local. Most of all I will miss our beautiful friendship. The conversation, banter, laughter, winding me up, cheeky and geeky jokes/messages, selfies and much more are all the lovely memories he leaves with me and I will cherish them always. I am so grateful for all the wonderful times we spent together, it was a true gift.

One of the last things Aman did for me was help me to move into my new home and of course, he helped me set up all the tech stuff - that was his thing! I’m forever thankful for all he has done for me. I can’t believe this was our last chapter together but now I have lasting memories and will always smile as I think of him.

Aman, rest in eternal peace my dearest friend🙏♥️✨🤍

My Aman mama was a loving kind hearted person who had a true passion for football and cricket. i remember we always use to bicker and argue about who was the better football team liverpool or tottenham, he would never give in and agree liverpool are the better team.
his smile, his laugh and his 2 step shuffle dance moves with two fingers up in the air is something i will always remember Aman mama you have left a big hole in our hearts and will truly be missed by us all the memories we all have with you we will cherish forever. It wont be the same without you at the bannerman house seeing you walk in and say “liyaben” “how are you” “hows uni life treating you” you were the best mama anyone could ask for we will all miss you so much and will forever be in our hearts love you Aman mama

What can I say about my aman Kakà except the word legend from thoughts of you who had a the pleaser to share a drink with him in ruby ms all the way to crown hills. Who got to be in a famous selfie with him no matter what time of day or night he was always there.

When mum arrived from India after getting married, Kaka became her best friend, helped her so much . Friends forever.

I could stand here all day and talk about how much I love him and my memories with him from when he lived with us when mum and dad would tell me off and he would take me sweet shop after to cheer me up to the screams at the spurs games we went together always making sure he got me a ticket as well and if I couldn’t be there always sending me a selfie and keeping me updated.

So to aman Kakà love you thank you for be my Kaka.

There's nothing I could say about my kaka that you probably haven't heard before. There really is no word to describe him except legendary. No matter who you were there was always something you and him would have in common. 

For all the cousins he was that one uncle who would let you do things your parents would never approve of. He fit that stereotypical uncle everyone loved perfectly or a "drunkle" as one of the shirts he proudly wore stated. Everytime he came over he would always take us to the cafe and would let us get whatever we wanted.

A very memorable moment I had with him was when he was in charge of looking after me after school, but my mum and dad forgot to tell him I had work to do so I played games the whole night. I still have the scar on my hand to prove it.

And while its going to be difficult not having that message from you when the new Samsung phone comes out or when visiting leicester and not seeing you, you will always forever be in my heart and I am proud to have the honour to call you my Aman Kaka.

Always love you Aman Kaka

Rest in peace dear friend, you brought kindness to all that came across and you shared your passions of football, cricket & curry to so many.

I will not forget that you brought all of the school year at Judgemeadow together for a Reunion that was cherished by all, you managed to keep in touch with all and keep us all connected.

Our condolences to your family and loved ones, god had taken his angel back up for the next mission.

Love & Light

We meet online through our love for Spurs and when I came over to the UK in 2018, you made the effort to come and meet me with another group of my online Spurs family. You were always so positive, friendly and from what I've read in these tributes, one in a million kind of guy. I'm so honoured to have met you and call you friend. Rest easy my friend, till we meet again. 🤍

💔 It’s heartbreaking that you are no longer with us, Bro. Doesn’t feel real that we will never have another selfie or a laugh. Your warm energy and vibes will be missed along with making us all laugh with doing what you do. You always brought everyone together and always took time to celebrate any event either in person or over social media. Fly high my Bro 🪽You will be missed is an understatement! Until we meet again 😔

I knew Aman for nearly 30years, we shared some great times whilst working at British Gas and kept in touch after but less frequently in recent years. But I would always receive a message at Diwali/Christmas/New Year, he was always very thoughtful. Still can’t believe the sad news, thinking and praying for all his family and close friends, my thoughts are with you. Sleep well Aman x

Aman was sent to us all from God himself. He was one of the only Asians that supported me after Big Brother 23yrs ago. Against all ..he showed me love and support. He didn't care what others thought, he never faltered in 23yrs. I will never forget his support and kindness. Ever. He was one in a million. Fact.
My biggest regret was not meeting him for that curry! Because actually, tomorrow was never promised. I'm incredibly sad that our community has lost a good one. A good man.
Aman, il always wear blue and remembered you

Thank Aman. Thank you for being kind.

Aman said was the amazing guy who organised our school reunion. The amazing soul who sent the first message on Diwali, Christmas, new year! He was joyful and loved life and loved & I’m so grateful to have known him from school! I am so sorry to his family and close friends. The fact that he leaves such a big hole in our life’s, is because he made such a beautiful & big impact- that is the power of a true, & beautiful soul! My condolences! On Shanti!

Aman and I used to work together at Hays Customer Solutions (British Gas) in the mid to late 90's and used to go out drinking / socialising together with a group of other work colleagues a lot of the time. This work association led to a friendship and we had a many a fun night out - it was our little group and we became a mini-family.

Sadly, our lives took us in different directions but we kept in touch throughout the years (even attending his wedding) and though we didn't see much of each other more lately, we always had banter and laughs over our love of Spurs and Liverpool.

The last message we exchanged was just a couple of days before he passed - Aman wishing me a happy birthday as he always would; as he would with everyone he knew. That's just the kind of guy he was, selfless and always thinking of others.

He was a class act, loved and adored by all. He's left an indelible mark and I know I speak for many that I've been exchanging messages and calls with that it's been a massive shock for everyone; he'll be sorely missed.

Fly high my friend; gone too soon but never to be forgotten 🤍

Dearest Aman, words can't describe how missed you are. You made us all smile, had the kindest heart and made time for everyone. I'll never forget our catch up drinks in Leicester town during my uni years and all the lovely memories we've created over the years since. I hated the name you gave me but what I would do now to hear you call me Champa Chemeli once more 💔. Rest in peace dear brother 🕊️

My first friend since the age of 3yrs old Aman Vaja. We had so many fun times together riding our tricycle bicycles round the block. Since I've known Aman he was just a gentle and humble guy who always had a smile on his face no matter what. He used to even tell me off when I was getting into trouble he would say Hey duggu bloody stop all this trouble your getting into he would go on for 5 mins then at the end he would say come on I'm only telling you cause I love you. Aman you are my best friend forever and I will always miss you so much my brother and make sure you cook up there the chores curries. Until we meet again my brother my God rest your soul in eternal peace love always 🙏

He was the life of the party and brought so much joy to anyone he met. A man with a heart of gold who always taught me to be myself, to be happy and always have a laugh.

Very blessed to have known Aman. After immigrating to Australia many many years ago, Aman would always continue to stay in touch and always pass on his good wishes whether it would be for birthdays, Diwali or New Years. I loved how he shared his love for cooking and admired the dishes he made. He had a huge heart. RIP Aman
