IN MEMORIAM: BHUPINDER ICHHPURANI
1936-2016
We are deeply saddened to report that Bhupinder Ichhpurani passed away peacefully, with his family members at his side, on October 29, 2016. Bhupinder earned his Masters degree in Mathematics, worked as a Mechanical Engineer for Shakespeare Company in Kalamazoo. Bhupinder and Daljit were long-time residents of Kalamazoo for the last 45 years. Bhipender was an active member of the Indian community in Kalamazoo area. He leaves behind a multitude of friends who enjoyed his great sense of humor and true friendship. He was instrumental in changing the life of many a friend and family member he helped and supported. Several of us remember him for his pleasant demeanor and jovial nature and his love for baseball, among other things. Bhupinder Singh lived up to his name. He was a Singh, a warrior and a fighter who had big ideas and drive. From the time his health became a greater challenge - till his end, he fought with the same vigor and zest for his life, while still maintaining a positive attitude and his everlasting sense of humor. Bhupinder leaves behind a rich legacy of his wife Daljit Kaur, two children Nita (Rob) and Kavi (Herprit), and four beautiful grandchildren Jack, Maya, Neil and Giselle. They were all his life’s driving force and his pride and joy. Bhupinder will be missed by his family and friends for a long time. We deeply share family’s grief and offer our condolence with thoughts and prayers for his surviving family members. We pray for the peace and 'mukti' of his soul.
