April 4, 1949 - January 11, 2022
On Tuesday, January 11th, 2022, Surinder Singh Kang, 72, passed away peacefully. He was a devoted and beloved husband, father, brother, and friend. Surinder was born in Nairobi, Kenya on April 4th, 1949 to Amar Singh Kang and Tej Kaur Kang. He was the youngest of three siblings. While growing up in Kenya, he cultivated many close friendships. He often said his heart was still in Kenya, where he ran in the savannah and was involved in rally car driving. Surinder traveled extensively in India, Nepal, and all over East Africa during this period of his life. In his early adulthood, Surinder traveled Europe with his siblings and briefly settled in England before moving to the United States and starting his university studies in Chico, California. Always a lover of new experiences, Surinder traveled throughout the United States before settling in Southern California. There he met his wife and the love of his life, María Castaño. Surinder and María had two sons, Pablo and Kabir. Surinder was a father who pushed his children to strive for academic excellence. He always wanted the best for his children, and expressed his pride for his children often. Ever the entrepreneur, Surinder had a remarkably diverse professional life: working as a truck driver in Europe, working in a school for adults, and owning businesses such as a gas station, restaurant, and mechanic shop. After he and his wife retired, Surinder and his wife bought an apartment and car in Alicante, Spain where they planned to spend the rest of their lives. He loved the mild weather, and he enjoyed the delicious food and taking long walks on the beach. Surinder loved and cared for his family. He enjoyed a life filled with humor, music, kindness, and charm. He was grateful for his blessings, and always appreciated his friends and family. Surinder always checked in on friends to make sure they were okay and offered words of encouragement. Surinder left this life the way he lived it: with love, warmth, courage, and optimism. As his family, we are so proud of his legacy and strive to live our lives with his spirit in mind. Surinder will be deeply missed for his kind and courageous spirit.
