We Remember

VIRK, Harmohinder Singh

1942 – 2023

September 9, 1942, Reru, Jalandhar, Punjab – December 26, 2023, Kelowna, BC.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Dada Ji, Harmohinder ‘Lalji’ Singh Virk, who departed this world on December 26, 2023. He peacefully passed surrounded by his family. He is survived by his wife, Mohinder; sons, Amandeep and Karanvir; daughters-in-law, Jasmeet and Anu; and his four grandchildren, Rahul, Rhea, Sahir, and Isha.

Born in Reru, Lalji and his brothers faced challenges after losing both their parents at a very young age. He and his brothers were left to take care of each other and their family land. Lalji was always proud to share that he was a self-made man who took himself to school. He proudly graduated school all while creating a long-lasting legacy of farming for future generations at Surajpur Farms in Uttar Pradesh, India.

We remember a remarkable individual whose heart knew no bounds when it came to love for his extended family, which was spread across the globe. Lalji found immense joy in maintaining strong connections with his relatives, bridging the distances through heartfelt and joyous visits and phone calls. His commitment to staying in touch reflected not only the ties of blood but also the depth of his affection.

As we bid farewell to a loving soul, may the echoes of his laughter and the resonance of his love remain eternally in our hearts, a testament to the enduring power of family connections. A Funeral Service will be held on FRIDAY, JANUARY 5, 2024, at 10:00 AM (PST), at SPRINGFIELD FUNERAL HOME, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. 

If you are unable to attend in person, please join the family online by Livestream at the time of the service (see below), a recording will be made available to view shortly thereafter.
