June 5, 1937 – Jan. 3, 2019
Our Dad came from one of the first pioneer families in Kamloops, he farmed alongside his father on the family farm on Popp Street until the mid-1980s. Dad worked at Inland Kenworth and later Loomis before a motorcycle accident forced him into early retirement. However, even a metal plate in his leg couldn’t slow him down. Dad bought his dream home in Westsyde in 1991. There he and our mother had an industrial-sized garden and later the big shop for the Dhaliwal men to work on their other passion... CARS!
Dad was an incredible grandpa and he loved his grandchildren Alyssa and Kruz very much. He would listen to their stories for hours and always surrendered his TV time to them.
Dad leaves to mourn his loving wife of 50 years Harjinder, his sons Paul and Robb (Charlie) and his grandchildren Alyssa and Kruz. Also left to mourn are his brothers Sone (Baljit) and David (Brenda) and many nieces and nephews. Dad was predeceased by his siblings, Jeto, Saba (Ambo) and Puro.
The family would like to express their gratitude to the First Responders for the care and respect they showed our Dad. And we want to especially thank the Sikh Cultural Society for the support they’ve provided to our mom and family.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.
The Funeral Service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 12 in the Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Drive. Cremation to follow service. Prayers will be held at the Kamloops Sikh Cultural Temple, 700 Cambridge Street, with Luncheon to follow.
