March 2, 1936 – April 10, 2023
Narinder Prihar, 87, passed away on April 10, 2023, at home surrounded by his family. He was born in Karnana, India, on March 2, 1936, as the second eldest of three brothers and two sisters.
Shortly after his 14th birthday, Narinder joined the Indian Army School of Signals where he worked as a Cypher Operator. Narinder retired from the army as a Junior Commissioned Officer after 26 years of service, and relocated with his wife and three sons, Parmvir, Yudhvir and Dharmvir, to Kitimat, British Columbia in 1979.
After several years, the family settled in Surrey, BC, shortly after which Narinder and his wife became active members of the Lakshmi Narayan Mandir.
Narinder’s wife, Bhagwati, passed away in 2004 following a long battle with breast cancer. In the years that followed, Narinder continued to volunteer his time by driving elderly cancer patients to their appointments. He routinely donated money to support cancer research and other important causes.
Family and friends are welcome to attend the funeral service, which will be held at the Riverside Funeral Home & Crematorium in Delta on April 22 at 11a.m.
