SANDHU, Jatinder Singh “Tander”
April 11, 1971 — January 2, 2021
Tander was born April 11, 1971, in India and was raised in Sparwood, BC. He passed away at the age of 49 in Kelowna, BC on January 2, 2021, surrounded by love. Tander leaves behind his father Balwant Singh Sandhu; his sisters Amar Kler and Kam Boparai; his daughters Savanna Sandhu and Shawnay Sandhu, and their mother Rami Sandhu; and an endless amount of family and friends. He is predeceased by his mother Gurdev Kaur Sandhu.
He had a passion for all sports, especially hockey. Some of his happiest moments were spent teaching the kids how to skate, coaching their soccer games, and playing hockey with them. What made him the most happy was just being surrounded by family. He lit up every room he was in. He made everyone around him laugh and brought such joy to all; with his contagious laughter. His kindness and generosity was recognized by all; he had the biggest heart and cared for every single person he met. He was one of the most intelligent people you’d meet, and showcased his endless amount of knowledge in all aspects of his life. His incredibly strong mind and heart is what got him through the toughest days, which inspired all those around him. He battled congestive heart failure and then pulmonary lung disease with superhuman strength. His family and friends will miss him always, and he will live on in his beautiful daughters Savanna and Shawnay.
