NARANG Lal Singh. May 15, 1935 - Dec. 23, 2011. It is with the greatest sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Lal Singh Narang. He leaves behind a large family and dear friends who loved him. Lal is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Maya Wanti (or as he always referred to her as his 'lovely wife'); his children, Surinder Chawla, Palvinder Narang, and Debbie Narang; his grandchildren, Eric Chawla (Sunita) and Deepak Chawla (Mandy); and the new love of his life, his great grandchild, Aaliyah. He was predeceased by his daughter Rajinder Narang. Lal was born in Dhudike, India and immigrated to Canada in 1969. Lal worked in the forestry industry as a lumber grader until his retirement in 2001. Though he retired, he never sat still. Lal loved life and his family. He will be remembered for his strong work ethic and reliability, but most of all, for his warm, big smile. He was a man of few words, but his sharp wit, his easy sense of humour and great love for everyone will always remain with us. Lal will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him. A viewing was held on Wednesday, December 28, 2011 at the Elks Hall in Merritt, BC, followed by cremation in Kamloops, and then a Service at the Gurdwara (Merritt Sikh Temple). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Lal's name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC, 1212 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC V6H 3V2, or the Canadian Cancer Society, BC & Yukon Division, 565 West 10th Ave., Vancouver, BC V5Z 4J4.
