Bhagwant arrived in Canada in 1967 at the age of 20 and upon arriving he took up employment in sawmills working two jobs for many years. Shortly after marriage in 1973, he started driving his own dump truck after which he began working in cedar mills. For a great many years he was a foreman and eventually began operating his own cedar mill. After leaving the cedar industry, he farmed for a few years in the Okanagan but always maintained his family home in Maple Ridge. For several years, he volunteered his time at the Khalsa Diwan Society in Abbotsford, B.C. He dedicated his time and resources to countless causes maintaining an active roll in community affairs. Bhagwant was strong, brave and resilient. His sacrifices and
struggles established his family and those of many others both here in Canada and Punjab. His love for his family permeated all aspects of his life. His dreams, desires and values continue on in his loved ones. He will be deeply missed and be forever in our hearts. The funeral will take place on Nov 2, 2011 at Maple Ridge Funeral Chapel and Crematorium at 10am.
