Our beloved Papa Ji was born to Shanti Dass and Gyan Wanti Jain on August 11th, 1934. He was the third sibling in a family of seven. Papa Ji, along with his family, relocated to Amritsar, where he completed his studies and then joined Indian Railways. He married our mother, Kamla Jain, at the age of 23, and raised four loving children.
After over 30 years of service in India, Papa Ji relocated to the U.S., where he enjoyed his retirement with seven beautiful grandchildren.
Papa Ji loved eating good food, traveling, and bragging about his family which he was so proud of. Despite challenges with his health, he maintained a strong will and positive attitude towards life.
After a lifetime of love and blessings, Papa Ji parted ways with this world. His memories will forever be cherished.
