I'm deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Sandhu! He treated me as his own daughter when I was growing up with Aman, Navi, and later, Ripple. Surinder was always the gracious wife and nurturer. He would often engage in discussions and debates with Aman and I as children. He built for us with Bob Bruce a tree house in the backyard of the Radcliff Circle home. I remember the smell of the corriander he grew in his garden. He relocated his entire extended family to safer countries. I know how much he missed his family when they went to India just after Ripple's birth. He often took me to the Sikh temple events in Durham at local churches and schools, long before the Sikh temple was ever built! I loved him very much and will miss him! My prayers and condolences extend out to his family and loved ones.
Dear Surinder Ji and Family,
We just came back from Bhog and Antim Ardad of esteemed Dr Sandhu at the Sikh
Gurdwara of North Carolina in Durham - and feel a personal sense of great loss over his sudden departure. A Sikh pioneer in Carolinas, distinguished scientist, and an icon of human progres, courage, humility, and selfless service. Dr Sandhu's grace, wisdom, and loving support will be dearly missed by the family, friends, and the broader community!
Spending this life fruitfully Gurmukh goes to the other world.
There in the True court (of Waheguru) he gets his True place!
Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji – Panaa 19
Our prayers are with the Sandhu family in this time of grief - Amarjit & Ranjit Basra
Really sad to hear Dr.Sandu passed away. My condolences to Surinder auntie and rest of the family. He will be certainly missed.
Dear Surinder, I'm so sad about Shebegs passing but I was so lucky to be given 11 years with a man who I looked up to as a Father! I will never forget the great memories and will always be there for you and the Sandhu Family! Joshua Furr
