Kumar was born in British Guyana South America where he practiced his trade as a gold smith and owned his jewelry business. He immigrated to Canada in 1981 and practiced his trade at Fosters Jewelry, Lethbridge, where he was a gold smith and a diamond setter for 36 years. He also employed his skills at Phil’s and Ward’s jewelry stores. Kumar was a gifted and skilled craftsman who took great pride in his work. He loved people and always had a smile for everyone, even strangers. He had a gentle personality with a calming effect on all those who spoke to him and his advice was always sought and valued. His pride and joy was his family. Our love for him is immeasurable. His joy in life and his love for us will forever be the souvenirs in our hearts, that of his nieces, nephews and extended family.
