Sanjay Achal

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Sanjay Achal on July 31st, 2021 after an ongoing battle with mental illness. He was 28 years old, several days short of his 29th birthday.

Sanjay completed a first class honours BSc in Neuroscience and was currently fulfilling his dream working on a medical degree at the University of Calgary. He was an incredibly talented musician, well known for his passion for the guitar. Sanjay enjoyed exploring the outdoors with his family and  his many friends.

Sanjay will be deeply missed by all who knew him – his infectious smile, quick wit, and endlessly generous spirit.

He is survived by his parents Kalpana and Stephen (Penny); his siblings Roshan (Jordan), Siena, and Adele; and in the hearts of innumerable family and friends.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday August 8th, 2021 at 1PM MDT. To be cautious of Covid-19 safety, we are limiting in-person attendance. A virtual stream is available for those who still wish to attend remotely:

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations to the Calgary Distress Centre be made in Sanjay’s name.
