Surjit "Surj" BAINS Obituary
Surj passed away peacefully in Irvine on March 10, 2016 at the age of 73. In the last 15 years, he dealt with many health issues, but it was his heart that gave out in the end. Surj attended Wynberg-Allen School in India, where he excelled in sports and academics and was school Captain. His track record still stands. Surj arrived in the U.S. at age 17. He worked in the aerospace industry as an Electrical Engineer and Engineering Manager. While his sons were growing up, he coached their sports teams. He was president of the Irvine Tennis Association and headed up the Irvine High School Booster Club. In his later years Surj re-connected with Wynberg-Allen, and organized an American-Canadian alumni association. His affection for the school was evidenced by his many international alumni friendships. The sum of Surj's life was in his spark and spirit, his unflagging stamina, and great capacity for friendship. He was the organizer, the volunteer, the one to go the extra mile. His absence leaves a wide space in the lives of his family and friends. Surj's love and devotion to his family, and the time spent with them was the most meaningful part of his life. Judy, his wife of 49 years survives him, along with his sons, Michael (Karen) and Gregory (Stephanie), 4 much loved grandchildren, brother Ben Bains, and sisters, Nikki Bains and Mo Liggitt.
