Harbans Singh Sihota Obituary
Harbans Singh Sihota June 1, 1921 - August 12, 2013 Harbans Sihota passed away peacefully on August 12th in his home, surrounded by his family. Harbans was born in Punjab, India, on June 1, 1921, and then later moved to Bakersfield, California, in December of 1971. During his life, he encountered many obstacles, from living under British Imperialism, through the partition of his country, and to finally leaving his home to establish a new life in a new country. In Bakersfield, he worked as a mechanic for 15 years and established a home for his family. After retirement, he enjoyed working on his properties and caring for his grandchildren. Harbans was a hardworking man who did everything to give his growing family a wonderful life; he offered stability and helped create a foundation so that his heirs can prosper. Through his life's journey, he has helped so many along the way. Strong, courageous, and loving with a witty personality, he will be greatly missed, leaving behind so many beautiful memories. He was preceded in death by his wife, Rajinder K. Sihota; parents, Milkha S. and Dhan K. Sihota; and brother, Resham S. Sihota. He is survived by his daughter, Satypal K. Aujla and son-in-law Atma S. Aujla; son, Charanjit S. Sihota and daughter-in-law, Rajpreet K. Sihota; brothers, Iqbal S. Sihota, Malkit S. Sihota, Davinder S. Sihota; brothers-in-law, Mengha S. Sanghera and Mohan S. Sanghera; grandchildren, Rajpreet S. Aujla, Hardeep K. Mann, Shaleen K. Sihota, Rashmeet K. Sihota; and great-grandchildren, Sahaani K. Mann and Roenick S. Aujla, including many nieces and nephews. Papaji will be greatly missed, and his family thanks him for his constant love and support. We would like to thank Dr. Ned Devasia and the staff at Mercy Hospice for their help and support.
