Jagdish Mitter, 91, passed away Friday, August 21, 2020. He was born on October 22, 1928 in Panwan, Punjab, India to Mr. Ditt Ram and Mrs. Parvati. He was third in a family of four brothers and four sisters. He graduated from D.A.V. high school, in Dasuya, Punjab in 1946 and worked for the Survey of India as a surveyor until he retired in 1986.

Stories of his growing up and his adventures are fascinating. He talked about how as young 18-year surveyor trainee he escaped from Pakistan during India Pakistan partition, and the dangerous journey home to Panwan. He also talked about his job surveying throughout India and how that kept him away from his family six months at a time. He worked hard to provide his children better education and future than he had. His doctor son-in-law described him as a principled man and a noble soul.

Jagdish was married to his wife Mrs. Vidyawati for 69 years when she departed to God’s care in January 2018. Together they had 3 sons and a daughter, all surviving. Hargopal Singh (Karen), Vijay Singh (Shalini), Nirmala Maheshwari (Anil) and Kamal Singh (Manju). He has two grandsons (Dhruv, Tarun) and four granddaughters (Seema, Niti, Priyanka, and Anusha).

He is also survived by his youngest brother, Joginder pal Verma of Jalandhar, Punjab, India. Preceding him in death besides his wife of 69 years are two brothers and four sisters.

May he rest in peace under God’s protection. We will miss him forever…
