  2. I worked with Harjinder for many years, however in the last 2 years I got to work with him as a manager. We worked together on a daily basis and I got to know him as a kind, gentle, unassuming person who spoke fondly of his family. By our conversations, I gathered that he was a loving son and brother, a caring husband, and a devoted father. He never had an unkind word for anyone and was always supportive of his colleagues.

  4. CandleI worked closely with Harjinder in the Software Testing group back when we were UBC. 🙂

    I was actually part of a group that interviewed Harjinder. We were very blessed to have him come work for us, and I had no idea when we extended an offer to him that we’d be getting someone with such high character.

    Harjinder was always so professional in his interactions with others. He was always very calm, such a genuine person and kind hearted individual. Back when we were in the office, I enjoyed talking hoops with Harjinder in between meetings.

    Rest in peace, you had a positive impact that I won’t forget.

  15. CandleHarjinder and I worked together for a very long time but it was over the last 5-6 years when we began working more closely on things that I truly got to know him. I talked to him nearly every day, multiple times a day. We talked a lot about our families and you could tell how proud he was of his kids and how much he loved and cared for his entire family. Harjinder was one of the kindest and most genuine people I have had the pleasure of knowing. He was a true team player, always willing to jump in and help out and always dedicated to supporting his team and colleagues. I knew that any time I asked Harjinder for help, he would do whatever it took. I knew he had my back, as he did with all his team members. I may have been his manager, but Harjinder taught me every day by his example – be calm, be kind and show compassion. Rest in peace, Harjinder. You will be sorely missed.

  18. I was fortunate enough to get to work with Harjinder for many years. When he walked into a room, he brought with him a sense of kindness and calmness that was always needed for our too frequent last minute meeting or a project escalation where his expertise was needed. It wasn’t just his expertise and broad knowledge that I appreciated, but the way he led his team by example with trust and integrity. He would always take the time to ask about my family and it was a joy to see him speak about his. Harjinder will be missed dearly by the many people that he touched.

  26. CandleI remember Harjinder was one of the first ones to welcome me into the UBC family. He was approachable and was always there to lend a helping hand. Always pleasant and extremely hard working, he was a factor in my career growth.

    I will always cherish the morning walks up 2nd street as he will suddenly appear right next to me at the lights and do our routine morning greetings. The world is missing a good soul now and I know our paths will cross once again.

    My condolences to his loving family

  29. CandleFinally, I had the courage to pen down this remembrance without breaking down.
    I was blessed to work with Harjinder for 5 years who was my team lead/ manager . He always had a gentle smile on his face no matter what the situation was. In our “one on one”meetings, he understood what kinda of work pressure we had and made sure we never burned out. He is the kind of person who always encouraged and motivated us in every aspect of our life. I have personally learnt a lot from him, being good colleague and above all an AWESOME human being. I couldn’t write this without wetting my eyes. Harjinder, you ll be missed.
    Rest In Peace !
