Dr. Naganna came to the United States with his wife in 1969 to New York and settled in Westminster, MD in October 1975 with his 3 beloved children and has considered this his home ever since.  Over the past 46 years as the renowned first Cardiologist in Westminster, MD, he cared for countless patients in the community and beyond.

He is survived by his beloved wife Dr. Vimala Naganna, three children who all followed in his medical footsteps:  Dr. Shankar Naganna, an Internist, Dr. Latha Naganna, a Cardiologist and daughter, and Anitha Rangarajan, a Physical Therapist who all continue to serve the community he helped build;  their spouses Karen Naganna, Aaron Fray and Venkat Rangarajan, and his cherished grandchildren Leila, Kiran, Rina, Riya, Anisa, Krishnan and Asha, also survive him in death.
