The Chauhan family is saddened to announce the passing of Arjun Wickram Chauhan on August 18th, 2023, at the age of 65. He passed in his home in Kamloops, BC after a prolonged battle with his health.
Arjun was born on February 27, 1958 in Mumbai, India and immigrated to Kamloops at a young age. He attended and graduated from NorKam Secondary school in 1975. Arjun pursued further education in Forestry and Natural Resource Management at BCIT and dedicated his career to the horticulture and landscape development sectors, working primarily in Vancouver Island and Northern Alberta until his early retirement in 2013. He then decided to return to his hometown of Kamloops.
Arjun will be remembered for his infectious smile and his compassionate and giving nature. He was extremely curious (he loved a good debate!) and had a passion for music, art, horticulture, and spiritual wisdom. He’d share news and information with anyone who would listen. He enjoyed playing golf, tennis and martial arts.
Despite his own personal struggles, Arjun kept his faith and prayed for the health and prosperity of loved ones and for those battling homelessness, addiction and loss.
Arjun kept photos, messages and notes in his home as a constant reminder and connection to those that he held close to his heart. He was a consistent supporter of the Kamloops Food Bank and spent his time and resources working to assist Ukrainian refugees.
Arjun is preceded by his father, Inderjeet Wickram Chauhan, and mother, Rita Elizabeth Chauhan. He is survived by his 2 sisters Indira Rempel, Sarina Chauhan and by his 3 children: Reuben Chauhan, John Chauhan (Stephanie, Ethan, Myles) and Kyla Steinley (Ben, Liara).
A private celebration of life will be held at a later date in accordance with the family’s wishes.
Memorial donations can be made in Arjun’s name to the Kamloops Food Bank, 171 Wilson St, Kamloops, BC V2B 2M8.Print This Obituary & Condolences
