Tributes paid to man who helped run Seven Kings gurdwara after his sudden death
The son of a man instrumental in running the Seven Kings gurdwara has described his father as “a peaceful, fun loving type of guy” after his sudden death.
Gian Singh Minhas had served in various positions at the gurdwara, High Road, Seven Kings, for more than 30 years.
His son Harshinder Singh Minhas, 32, said: “He was a peaceful, fun loving type of guy and loved his religion. There’s just a feeling of emptiness, there’s a big gap in our lives.”
Gian Minhas, who died aged 63 from a major heart attack, also served on the British Sikh Council UK and was a member of the board of Sikh Council UK.
Upkar Singh Rai, of the British Sikh Council UK, said: “We’ve lost one of the most humble and spiritual individuals in our community.”
