It’s with very heavy hearts we announce the passing of Sardar Birinder Singh Virk, who departed from this world peacefully on Sunday, October 1st, 2023 at the age of 72 years.
Our Papa, as the eldest member of the Virk family, has been an inspiration to many lives. He embraced life to the fullest and impacted many as a role model. He led a very simple and humble life.
In addition to his very successful professional pursuits, Virk Saab was a devoted family man. He married his beloved wife of almost 50 years, Satwant Virk, and together they built a loving and harmonious home filled with laughter, love, and kindness. He was a nurturing father to his children, Harleen Virk, Amarinder Singh Virk, and Vikram Singh Virk imparting to them the values of kindness, respect, and the importance of family.
He also leaves behind his five grandchildren Sidak, Sargun, Seher, Ayaan, and Nirvaan; daughters-in-law Hersh and Ishneet. He was a loving “Bha” to Sardar Ravinder Singh Virk and Late. Mrs. Harpinder Kahlon, Vadde Papa to Anmol, Jasneet, Gursant, Respected Mamaji to the Kahlons, Revered BIR Bhaji and Fufad ji to Cheemas and Masadji to the Ghumans. He is known for his infectious laughter, his Punjabi folk songs, and his hearty humor in the wider family.
Virk Saab as he was lovingly known was not just a pillar of his family but also an active contributor to the broader community. His generosity knew no bounds, and he was known for assisting those in need without seeking recognition or praise. Virk Saab had a respectable career and deep relationships professionally and personally. He retired as a DGM, PADB in 2009.
As we mourn the loss of Virk Saab, let us also celebrate the beautiful life he lived and strive to honor his memory by continuing his legacy of love, service, and devotion to his extended family and to the wider community.
