Obituary

Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha was born December 27, 1929 as per documentation being altered, in lieu of migrating to Toronto, Ontario. However, Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha was actually born December 31st, 1921. The purpose of the change in birth date was for him to be able to migrate with his entire family to Canada and not deemed a pensioner once arriving to Canada.

Prior to arriving to Canada, Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha lived a life of service in India and Pakistan. Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha was born in Punjab where he worked as a School Teacher. Having to witness and live through the India-Pakistan partition, Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha and his family were originally in the Punjab, Pakistan side. However, due to the circumstances of the partition, him and his family had to leave everything behind and relocate to Jalandhar, Punjab, India in 1947 where he briefly resumed his teaching job until he moved on to a new path.

Due to the circumstances of the ongoing war, Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha’s bravery prevailed and he was enlisted in the Indian Army as of 1948. Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha was a born leader and eventually gained a higher rank as a Lieutenant General during his service with the Indian Army. Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha served for 30+ years and had to risk his life everyday. He was recognized as an amazing Tank Operator and when in duty, he would have to sleep under tanks and guide his soldiers away from attacks. Lieutenant Colonel Santokh Singh Sangha was a Hero and eventually India had won the war against Pakistan.

During his time in India, Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha was married to his wife Late Harbans Kaur Sangha until her passing in 2013. Together they had 3 children; two sons; Harnek Singh Sangha and Harjap Singh Sangha, and a daughter Davinder Kaur Khabra. He had gotten his eldest son Harnek Singh Sangha married to Manjit Kaur Sangha, in India.

Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha had migrated to Canada in May 1980. With his many years of experiences in India/Pakistan and his fluency in Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu and English - Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha had immediately started working as a Security Guard in various locations in Toronto, including the Don Jail. With his 8 years of work as a Security Guard, Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha was promoted to a Supervisory role due to his proven abilities until his retirement in 1988.

Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha had created a life in Toronto, Canada and had gotten his daughter married to her husband; Late Sukhdev Singh Khabra. He had thereafter gotten his son married to his wife; Karamjit Kaur Sangha in Surrey, British Columbia.

Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha is survived by 5 grandsons; Sundeep Singh Khabra, Harmanprit Singh Sangha, Gagandeep Singh Sangha, Sabhdeep Singh Khabra & Amardeep Singh Sangha and 3 granddaughters; Varinder Stringer, Avninder Sangha-Colwell & Chanvir Kaur Manik.

Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha was very fortunate having had the opportunity to witness 5 of his grandchildrens’ weddings. The spouses of the grandchildren are; Jason Stringer, Stephen Colwell, Komal Khabra, Manpreet Bajwa-Sangha and Ajit Manik. Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha is survived by his 2 great-grandchildren Isaac & Zeke Stringer.

Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha had taken his final breath in his sleep on Friday November 8th, 2019. He was almost 98 years of age. Mr. Santokh Singh Sangha was a beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather, Father-in-law and staple in the Sangha, Khabra, Dhillon and Grewal families. We would especially like to take out a moment to thank Davinder Kaur Khabra and family for their care in the recent day’s of his life.

We will never forget you Lieutenant Colonel Santokh Singh Sangha. We love you and will carry on your memory always.
