2014 Deceased Member — Pyar Dossal

In memory of Pyar Dossal

Pyar Dossal passed away peacefully in his sleep on June 3, 2014. He was 87.

He is the dearly loved husband and devoted companion of 61 years to Joyce, adored father of Linda and Carolyn, beloved father-in-law of Michael and Graham, and doting grandad to Adam, Madeleine, Jennifer and Jonathan.

Dossal was the first Muslim born in India to qualify as an actuary. An avid cricket, tennis and badminton player in his youth, a music lover and in his later years, a stalwart, dedicated Liberal and Sudoku wizard, he also gave generously of his time to Amnesty International and Sunnybrook Hospital.

A gentle, gracious and devoted family man, Dossal was relied upon and respected for his insight and wisdom. He inspired those around him to strive to do their best and to do the right thing. We were so fortunate to have had him in our lives for so many years. We will miss his sweet smile and unfailing love.

Donations may be made in his name to Amnesty International at www.amnestygift.ca or Doctors without Borders at www.doctorswithoutborders.org.
