Harinder Singh Garewal 59, passed away August 23, 2010, in Tucson, Arizona. Born in New Delhi, India, Harinder's life is one of scholarly and humanitarian accomplishment. He earned a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering at 17 from St. Xavier's College in Calcutta. He immigrated to Montreal to attend McGill University, earning his doctorate in biochemistry at 21. He received his M.D. at Harvard University, graduating at the top of his class at 27. In 1985, he joined the University of Arizona faculty as a physician and professor in the fields of oncology and gastroenterology, and quickly attained full tenure. He was the Chief of Medical Oncology at the Southern Arizona VA Medical Center. His legacy was visible even in his final moments, as many of the doctors caring for him had been trained by him. He is survived by his wife, Dr. Kristin Olson-Garewal; three sons, Jasbir (Yui), Raj and Shaun and granddaughter, Lillian. A Service will be held Saturday, August 28, 2010, at 2:00 p.m. at ADAIR FUNERAL HOMES, Avalon Chapel.
