<div itemprop="description">It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Inder Khanna, on November 25, 2020, in Pointe-Claire, at the age of 85. <br> <br>He was the loving son of Shiv Das and Sohan Devi Khanna and devoted husband of Renuka Handa, with whom he shared his life for 55 years. He will be greatly missed by his children Manika and Sanjay and Ronika and Brock. He will be fondly remembered by his grandchildren Sean and Tara. He also leaves behind his brothers Om and Anand, his sisters in law Kamla, Anjani and Manju, his nephews and nieces Poonam, Ranjan, Pamela, Kamlesh, Kiran, Raman, Anu, Lalit, Rohit, Nutan and Kamani as well many other family and friends. <br> <br>"Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come." <br> -Rabindranath Tagore <br> <br>Inder Khanna was a loving dedicated family man who always made everyone around him feel loved and special. The glue of his family, he always made you feel like his number one. His commanding presence made everyone feel secure and confident. His devotion to his mother, wife and daughters made him quite the ladies’ man and he loved to spoil them always bearing gifts from all corners of the world. <br>Inder was a religious man with tremendous strength, integrity and devotion who treated everyone with honesty and fairness. One of his greatest qualities was his optimism. He never saw the cup half empty; it was always half full; he could convince you anything was possible. He gave his family so much strength and confidence; reaching for the stars was the family mantra. <br> <br>Inder was born in Lahore to devoted loving parents and was the eighth of nine siblings. The siblings lived a life out of a fairy tale in a magical country with fantastic trips and gourmet adventures. He always had a friend in his brothers and sisters, and they were the closest family ever known. It was given that his siblings were always at the top of his heart and he would do anything for his parents and them. <br> <br>Sports, clothes, enjoying a great meal, travelling and chatting with his children and grandchildren were some of his hobbies. He also loved to talk about business and politics. His biggest joy was his wife Renuka who he loved with a great passion. He wanted her by his side at all times and their devotion to each other was noticed by all. Inder was a man who accomplished so much and whose achievements are made even grander by his wonderfully endearing presence and personality. <br> <br>Let us end with a quote from a man greatly admired by Inder: <br>"The human soul is eternal and immortal, perfect and infinite. Every soul is a circle whose circumference is nowhere but whose center is located in a body, and death means only a change of center from one body to another. The soul thus goes on evolving in its journey from birth to birth and death to death." <br>- A quote on death from the book “Speeches and Writings of Swami Vivekananda”. <br> <br>Due to circumstances in regards to the pandemic, a private event will be held in his memory.</div>
