Mr Deep Singh Hira was a pillar in the Guelph community and was amongst the first few Sikhs in Guelph and helped so many people in so many ways.  He came to Canada in 1970 and remained in Guelph for the last 50 years. His father-in-law Atma Singh Sood and brother-in-law Balvir Singh Sood had migrated from Britain to Guelph in 1968 and Deep Singh had joined the Sood family to settle in Guelph.

Deep Singh Hira was a long time life member of Guelph Sikh Society and participated actively with his family in the Gurdwara sewa and operations.  We are grateful for his strength and legacy for the services and support he provided. He was involved in sewa in the Gurdwara programs, annual meetings and encouraged everyone involved in the new Gurdwara building development to make it happen.  We will miss him deeply.
