I am sorry to hear of Dinanath's passing, the first time I met Dinanath he was selling steam traps many years ago. I have not had the pleasure of spending much time with him, but the time I did was very rewarding.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Nakhwa family and friends

Dear Aunty, Amit and Ajit:

I was very saddened to hear about Uncle's passing. My deepest condolences to you and your family. I have very fond memories of the "Silin Forest Road" gatherings. Uncle was always such a warm, welcoming and generous individual who left a lasting impression on all.

I have fond memories of Dina Uncle throughout my life and especially in childhood. Uncle was a kind, caring and funny person who seemed to bring the best out in people. The entire Nakhwa family was incredibly supportive when our family faced challenging times. I feel lucky to have had you in my life.

Our condolences to Sushila Auntie, Amit and Ajit. He will be greatly missed!

Love Anita, Meric and Anya

We knew Dina and Sushila, since we moved to Calgary in 1984. I will always cherish one of the finest memories which I will never forget.
When I was expecting my second baby (Anupa) in 1985, I was about 7 months pregnant and Sudhir had to travel to Singapore for business, that time, Dina and Sushila came to my house and packed my suitcase and drove me to their home in Calgary, He said you are not going to stay alone until Sudhir gets home. He and Sushila looked after me like his sister and took care of me, his loving, caring and compassionate nature will never be forgotten. I stayed with them for more than a week until Sudhir came home.
He and Sushila were also very good hosts when we visited them during Rohan’s soccer tournaments.
We are very sorry to hear about this loss, Our heart goes out to my dear friend Sushila, Amit and family and Ajit and family. Condolences from Parab family to all Nakhwa family. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. He was a higher soul, so he is definitely resting in peace. Lots of love ❤️ and hugs.
Take care Sushila and family.

I am so fortunate to have known Dina Uncle since Amit and I were kids. His one liners brought a great deal of laughter and enjoyment to so many. He was one of the kindest, most loving, and selfless people I have ever had the privilege of knowing. A jovial and beautiful person...that I truly miss. May your kind soul rest peacefully. I will always cherish the time we had together.

My friendship with Dina began forty one (41) years ago, when we were working at Flour Canada. Being a new employee, I was eating lunch in the cafeteria by myself and Dina came over to my table and introduced himself. One and half week later he invited us for dinner. That was the beginning of a long family friendship.
As the years went on, I have gotten to know this wonderful man more, how he was such a very kind and caring person with a big heart.
Over the years Dinanath become Dinaji (out of respect). He was like a brother, I did not have. He stood by us during the good times and the bad times.
Last year when Dina was in the Grey Nuns Hospital and was confined to bed, he still cracked jokes. He did not lose his sense of humor even in the difficult times
Dina was great Husband, Father, Brother, Brother-in-law, Uncle and loyal friend. My heart goes out to Nakhwa and Singh families on the passing of Dina. Please accept our heartfelt condolences for your loss.

Words are not enough to express the sorrow that I have in my heart to lose such a dearest uncle. There is no replacement for the person like him. I met uncle over 10 years ago when I first came to Canada. Both he and Aunty gave me immense encouragement and support throughout my struggling days while I was trying to establish my career. Despite his pain, he would always smile and listen attentively to our achievements.
At this time, all that I can do is pray for his peaceful soul. My brother Varun joins me in sending lots of love and regards to dearest Sushila Aunty, Amit and Nesha, Ajit and Mandy and your entire family.

Dear Dina:

I regret very much that due to restrictions, I was unable to pay my respects to you in person and offer my condolences to the Nakhwa family.

I will always cherish our conversations on the bus ride to/from Suncor site. I recall very well when we had to intervene to get the CAD operators to focus on preparing the drawings that you needed.

The Mullick and Nakhwa families enjoyed social get togethers both in Fort McMurray and Edmonton, including Amit's jokes during my 60th birthday celebration.

We would like to express our sincerest condolences to Sushila, Amit (Nesha), Ajit (Mandy) and other family members. May they have the courage during this difficult period.

May your soul rest in peace as those you have left behind mourn the loss and your absence.

Au revoir - प्रकाश मलिक
