OBITUARY

Kuldip Singh Bhullar

October 10, 1964June 25, 2020

With the heaviest of hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Kuldip Singh Bhullar. At 55 years old, on the stormy night of June 25, 2020, Kuldip passed silently and unexpectedly in the comfort of his own home.

Kuldip immigrated from India on April 1, 1993. He was lovingly known as K-Dawg, Mr. Cool, “Bapu” and Veer Ji. To everyone he met, he passed no judgement and saw the true person in all those who had the privilege of knowing him. Always the wisest with advice, the most cunning with comebacks and the cleverest of wit, Kuldip’s most unique perspective on the world left an impression on us all.

Kuldip will be forever missed by his children Priya (15), Kiran (26) and Jasmine (24); his siblings Harjit Singh Bhullar, Jasbir Singh Bhullar and Surinder Kaur Bansal; and many nieces and nephews, Noni, Aman, Deepu, Raunaq, Zevin and Sana. Kuldip is predeceased by his loving wife of 23 years, Kamaljit (deceased 2015, age 50) and his parents, Mohinder Singh and Satwant Kaur.

ADD A MEMORY
Gurdeep Bhullar

Kuldeep Taya Ji used to call me Raja Putri (Puti). I am blessed to have met and shared a few moments of my life with him. He was a charismatic figure to me and my family. My dad (Jasveer Bhullar, his younger brother) often used to take me to cafés and restaurants where they both used to go. My dad would bring the well-spent memories of his childhood with Taya Ji in discussion all the time.

I have fond memories of Taya Ji when he visited Delhi. Countless hours of discussions on topics ranging from politics, music, culture, and tradition were usual. It is a great loss for all of you. This void can never be filled.

My deepest condolences to Priya, Jasmine, and Kiran. ❤️

Kuldeep Taya Ji used to call me Raja Putri (Puti). I am blessed to have met and shared few moments in my life with a wonderful human being. I was too little when Tayaji left India for Canada. My Dad (Jasveer Bhullar, his younger brother) used to take me to cafes and restaurants where they both used to go. At places like Keventers in Connaught Place Delhi, my dad used to remember his well-spent childhood days with his older brother.

I have fond memories of Taya Ji when he visited Delhi. Countless hours of discussion on topics ranging from politics, music, and cultures were usual. It is a great loss for all of us. This void can not be filled. May his soul rests in peace.

My deepest condolences to Priya, Jasmine, and Kiran. ❤️

There are some who bring light so great to the society,that even after they have gone, the light and their values remain.
Kuldip was a gem of a person. We used to share about kids ,society, relations,and ourselves for hours . It is a great loss for all of us. This loss can not be filled. I wish heaven had a phone , so we could talk again about our own desires..
May the departed PURE soul rest in peace..

I do not know how long have I known Kuldip. I was too young to remember. By the way, he was known as Kuldeep. I don't know when it changed to Kuldip. We must be six or seven years old when Kuldip started school. We were in second or third standard when Kuldip's Dad brought him and his older brother (Harjeet) to school. I vividly remember a smartly dressed up fair skinned young boy with white shirt tucked into khakhi half pant. That was the school uniform. We clicked straight away and remained friends for life. After a few days, I visited Kuldip's home that was just a few blocks from my home. I was very impressed that Kuldip has a fridge freezer in his home, that was a rarity in India in early 1970s. Kuldip's Mother made milk ice cream with boiled milk and sugar. It was a real treat. We studied together till twelfth standard. During the school years, we used to meet most evenings and chat for hours. Kuldip got married and moved to Canada in 1994. I moved to the United Kingdom in 1995. International calls at that time were expensive but we used to chat on phone for hours. I visited Kuldip in Winnipeg in 2001. Kuldip has a really sharp mind. We shared the love for urdu poetry and used to recite Ghalib, Bashir Badr, etc to each other. He was a true family man and could talk about his daughters achievements for hours. I do not think that a lot of people around him understood him well. Kuldip's last year years were really heart breaking. He never recovered from the sudden death of his wife in 2015. He was really a part of me and will remain in my thoughts for the rest of my life. May he gets in death what he missed in life – love, rest and respect. See you in due course!

I met uncle ji once and just by talking to him, it felt like I have known him for so long.

The conversation varied from talking about nature, to my new work place, to his journey from India to Canada and our similar interest in music.

Till date, I have always cherished that memorable conversation with him, and I will cherish it forever.

I will definitely miss you, Uncle ji. Wish we could share more memorable conversations. You will be missed forever. May your soul Rest In Peace.

Kuldip veer ji and I have always shared a strong bond, talking everyday for hours about our children, friends, work, household chores and everything in between.

He has always been very kind and helpful, not just to me but to everyone else too, he was truly an extraordinare with knowledge in almost every field. He has always had a nice sense of humour and a smile that could light up any room.

I still remember, when Veer ji was around 25years old, he insisted on decorating our new house . He put up a huge Dev Anand poster in our balcony, even though all of us thought the poster should be pasted on the bedroom wall. Soon after, people passing by our house started noticing the poster , some stood there, just in awe of it and a few even came up to get their pictures clicked with the Dev Anand poster.

Veer ji enjoyed listening to ghazals and shayaris and often shared them with me.

Veer ji always shared Kiran,Jasmine and Priya's achievements with me with much pride, and loved to show me pictures of their trophies, vacation pictures and all other achievements big or small.

Veer ji was more than just a brother, he was a father figure to me, who was always been there for me . He will always be with us in our hearts . May his kind soul rest in peace.
