Herman BRAICH

BRAICH Herman Singh Jr. Herman Singh Braich Jr. (June 5th, 1960) – Son, Brother, Uncle and Friend – left us suddenly and much too soon on February 4th 2012. Loved by many and respected by all, Herman lived, laughed, and spoke resonantly, creating waves, stirring discussion, and infusing our lives with his passion, belief and insistence for all things moral and just especially freedom and equality for all. While proud of his accomplishments as a UBC grad (philosophy) and provincial All-Star athlete, we will remember Herman most fondly for his transcendent intellect, endearing spirit and fearless wit, humour and courage under the toughest of circumstances. Kind, generous and patient, Herman will remain Uncle extraordinaire to Steve, Talia, EJ, Leni, Petey, Rachel, Riley, Bradley and Natalie, but will certainly be missed most by his dear mother, Surjeet, siblings Erwin, Reita, Bobby (April), Kenny (Chelsi) and members of his extended family, sisters Jesse (Harry), Jinder, Baldev and their respective children. Having passed before him, Herman has joined his father Herman Sr. and brother Herjiwan (Jim) in God’s presence. Herman, we love you, we miss you and thank you for bringing light, love and laughter to our lives. Rest in peace gentle soul. A Funeral service will be held at The Clarke Theatre, 33700 Prentis Avenue, Mission on Sunday, February 12, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. with cremation to follow at Bakerview Crematorium, 34863 Cemetery Avenue, Mission. Prayer services will commence at 5:00 p.m. at the Mission Sikh Temple. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Herman to the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated.
