We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Oak Park Hills Chapel
Baldev Raj Munjal passed away peacefully in the early hours of Sunday, May 22,2022
He was with his beloved wife of 52 years, Saroj, and his loving son Pankaj by his side.
For many of his friends and family, he was the person they called for advice, comfort or even just to share a laugh. To his children, he was a devoted and generous father. To his wife, he was an equal partner, dedicated and loving till the very end. But the real apples of his eye were his five grandchildren; he was very proud of their achievements and ever involved in their lives. They brought him great joy.
Baldev was born in the first week of summer of 1938 in Garh Maharaja, British India to his father Shri Pokhar Dass Munjal, and mother Rampyari.
At barely 5 years of age, he lost his father. His family had barely healed from that loss when the 1947 Partition of British India rendered him, his widowed mother, and four siblings refugees in a new India. The tough times only made him more resilient, and imbued in him a stubbornness to succeed. This resolve to not only survive but thrive, would continue to be the hallmark of his life.
Through it all, his faith in Lord Krishna was unwavering and he remained ever grateful for all the blessings life had showered on him.
In 1992 he moved with his family to the United States to be closer to his elder brother Krishan. He quickly established himself in a new and rewarding career as a registered Court interpreter. He loved his job, and in the course of his new found career, he made many meaningful friendships. Staying true to his selfless spirit, he was always helpful, generous and loyal to his many friends.
During this difficult time, the words of love and support of his family and friends have been a great source of solace, comfort, and strength. We thank you all for your kindness during our greatest sadness.
As part of a celebration of his life, we encourage others to share their stories and experiences with him.
We appreciate it more than any words can express and we will always remember it.
The family of
October 1, 1938- May 22,2022.
