It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ujagar Singh Kauldher on August 2nd in Burnaby, BC. Born in India on September 2, 1921, he immigrated to Canada in 1970, and spent the later part of his life as a founding member of the Cariboo Gur Sikh Temple.
Ujagar Singh served the British Allied Forces as a Sapper, throughout North Africa and the Mediterranean during WWII. He represented his country with valor during Remembrance Day Ceremonies, as a member of the Canadian Legion Branch No. 94.
He dedicated 16 years of his life to the lumber industry, serving West Fraser Mills.
Ujagar’s faith in Sikhi, and dedication to health and education has had a lasting impact on those he knew. His marriage to late Amar Kaur for over 70 years exemplified the meaning of true love and partnership. He is survived by sons Kuldip (Anita), Mohinder (Lystra), and daughter Mohinder Ahira (late Gurmail Ahira), 10 grandchildren, and 11 great grandchildren.
