December 31, 1918 – August 27, 2015
S. Ajit Singh Johal passed away peacefully on August 27, 2015 at the age of 96 years old.
Ajit was born in Jandiala, Punjab in India. He came to Canada in 1983 to join his son and his family, making Kamloops his permanent home. He was an avid gardener, spending many hours in his backyard garden while he was healthy. Ajit also loved walking, spending most of his time all over the North Shore of Kamloops, especially McArthur Island Park. He was eager to try out his English skills with anyone that he encountered, and always greeted them with his welcoming smile and cheerful personality. He was ready and willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need in Canada or India. He was a devout Sikh, and a regular visitor to the Sikh Temple, playing the dholki whenever he was able to. His generosity and loving nature will forever be remembered and cherished by all.
Ajit is survived by his three children Bahader Singh (Baxsho Kaur) Johal of Kamloops, Simmer Kaur (Mohan Singh) Sandhu of India, and Narinder Kaur (Sarbjit Singh) Sanghera of Edmonton; his son-in-law Avtar Singh Chohan of India; his eleven grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and numerous close relatives and friends. He was pre-deceased by his wife Nachattar Kaur, daughter Harbhajan Kaur Chohan and granddaughter Jasbir Kaur.
