OBITUARY

Jit S. Pegany

October 20, 1928July 8, 2019

Jit Singh Pegany, 90, went home to be with his Lord on July 8, 2019 in Scottsdale, Arizona. Loved by many, he will always be remembered as our beloved Dad, Grandpa, Brother, Uncle, Pastor, Mentor, and dear Friend. Born on October 20, 1928 in Shankar, India, Jit was the 5th son of Malungi and Mallon Pegany. He immigrated to the US in 1949 to attend college, graduating from the University of Arizona in 1954. He met his wife Lynn while in Tucson and married in 1953. They settled in Phoenix in 1965 and Jit began a successful 65 year civil engineering career. Jit’s greatest passion was his unwavering love for Jesus Christ and he spent his life sharing the Good News wherever he went. Today, he is able to say as the Apostle Paul said, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now, there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” Jit and Lynn enjoyed 64 years of marriage before her passing in 2017. Jit is survived by his three children, Leila Norris(Tom), Debora Allen(Dale) and Paul Pegany(Sharon); four grandchildren; and six great grandchildren, brothers Dr. Sukhdev, Gurdev, and Ratna, as well as many adoring nieces and nephews. A celebration of Jit’s life will be held in the Chapel of Light at Green Acres Cemetery, 401 North Hayden Road, Scottsdale, AZ.

Nana Jit’s kind soul and giving spirit touched so many lives by sharing the Word Of GOD especially when he came to visit his niece Mohindro in Oxford Uk I was so blessed to receive the holy spirit in nana Jit's meeting and will never be forgotten. I miss nana Jit beautiful smile and sweet voice and he had so much love for his family and his eternal faith.
We will continue to be inspired by the life he lived. I still remember the words of blessings I remember when nana Jit came to England and prayed for me and he asked the Lord to make me a preacher and the Lord granted nana Jit prayers and now I follow in his footsteps and preach the Gospel He will forever live in our memories and heart until we meet again nana Jit is able to says just like paul told us in 2 Timothy 4:7-8 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.Amen and Amen

My sincere condolences to the family of Jit Pegany. I met Jit when he performed consulting work for ADOT in the 70s and 80s. Jit always made the projects fun even as the work got well done. He always greeted you with that big smile and was so friendly to all. We always had a fun time in the evenings at dinner after a field trip. Jit was truly a kind hearted man in addition to his engineering abilities. I was privileged to have known him and have fond memories. May he rest in Peace!
