Sandhu-Vliet (Garrette), Harbinder Grewal (Kamal), and Roopinder “Lucky” Wernicke (Fred); son Sukhwinder (Rimi) Sandhu; and his cherished grandchildren, Gavinder “Gavin” S. & Ravinder “Ravi” K Vliet, Kavi & Jasleen Grewal, Reece Wernicke, and Simran Sandhu will miss their Papaji/Grandpa’s sense of humour and love.
