Sunny is survived by his loving wife (Sarbjit Parmar), son (Harvir Parmar) and daughter (Avneet Parmar).

Sunny was born on October 12 1972 in Punjab, India (village Paanshtah). He immigrated to Calgary at the young age of 6 years old. He initially lived in the community of Penbrooke and did his schooling entirely in Calgary, eventually earning his Criminal Justice Studies Diploma from Mount Royal College. Sunny worked at CP Rail for several years before moving to the City of Calgary. Sunny was intelligent, ambitious and took charge of his life by creating his own opportunities for success. He was known to be a handsome, charismatic and kind hearted man who could bring a smile to anyone’s face that he spoke with.

Sunny met his wife at Calgary Stampede in 1991. He would often tell the story of how he saw her across the room and instantly fell in love. They have been married for 24 years and brought two wonderful children into this world. Sunny could not have been prouder of his son, Harvir, or loved anyone as much as his daughter, Avneet. Sunny played a pivotal role in the childhoods of his nieces and nephews. Every one of them can recount numerous stories of fun and adventure where Sunny was the center of the memory. Sunny was the youngest of his siblings and was always one of the favorites.

Sunny brought joy, laughter and a carefree attitude in every room he was in. He was truly a light for everyone in his life. HIs family and loved ones are grateful they had the opportunity to know and love a man as great as Sunny Parmar.

        I will always think of Sunny as my brother. One of the most authentic man I have ever met. He taught me that it is okay to let the world see me, not the mask I like to put on. He also taught me I can also also strive to become a better man. Sunny taught me many things; live generously, it’s okay to speak your mind, admit when you were wrong, and that it’s strength to show love for others. Thank you Sunny for teaching me these, and other, things. Your life will not be forgotten.

        To his family, thank you for sharing Sunny with us. We grieve with you. I have gotten to know some of you a bit in that last few weeks, and I see him in you. We stand together, united by a remarkable man. He will be missed, but, at the same time, he is still with us, living through us. May you feel his presence within you and within the people who knew him.
