It is with deep regret we share the news of Mr. Kewal Ram Kalia’s passing on May 31, 2020.
Kewal was a well civilized Indian nationalist with a passion for singing Hindi classical music, reciting poetry and Indian literature.
Kewal earned a M.Sc. in Chemistry and a M.Sc. in Physics from Agra University in 1963. Kewal migrated to London in 1967, fulfilling his late father’s dream to have Kalia’s migrate abroad. He was active in London politics, published in newspapers for his defence of immigrants and calls to end racism. In 1970, Kewal immigrated to Canada and earned his teaching degree from the University of Toronto. Kewal was an entrepreneur pursuing many industrial business ventures, and proprietor of a successful daycare business.
In the early 1980’s ,after enduring many personal tragedies, Kewal’s bipolar mental illness became debilitating impacting his personal and professional life. Kewal most recently succumbed to complications of a severe shingles infection.
It is our earnest prayer that God grant blissful peace to this great soul. May Kewal’s story support our understanding and momentum toward better treatments and accommodation of those struggling with mental health issues.
Kewal will be greatly missed by his four children Pardeep Kalia(sp. Jacqueline), Sanjay Kalia, Sharmila Kalia(sp. Dino Sergnese), Anupuma Vijan (sp. Arun), his 7 grandchildren, great grandchild, loving sisters, elder brother and many nephews and nieces.
A celebration of Kewal Ram Kalia's life will take place once COVID restrictions are lifted. For those feeling the need to make a donation in Kewal's honor, we would kindly request it's made to a Mental Health charity of your choice.
