Bhupinder Mohan Gangahar

March 1, 1937 – March 13, 2022

Bhupinder Mohan Gangahar was born in Patiala, Punjab on March 1, 1937. After his graduation from Punjab University, he came to the United States to begin his engineering degree at Cal Poly Institute of Engineering and completed it in 1962.  He went back to India in 1963 and got married in 1964.  Following a career in India, he immigrated to the United States, in 1980. After a successful stint in the energy sector, the culmination of his professional life was as a real estate investor and entrepreneur in the hospitality sector.  He never retired.

Following a battle with multiple organ failure over a period of months, he passed away on Sunday, March 13, 2022, at 3:17pm with his family by his side.

“I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments.  Not in the cacophony of a loud world, but more like the serenity of a quiet museum when they are not trying to teach us.  We are formed by scraps of wisdom. And it is this wisdom that is clearly heard at the end, and by posterity.

The gift my father gave me every day of my life was he believed in me”.  – Vikash Gangahar

“An entrepreneur by nature, my father was always looking for a “good deal”.  More art than science, as I would observe over the course of many years. I reveled in his ability to find these gems as there was always a captivating story that ensued, often mimicking his comical nature.  His strength to usurp an established life in India for the betterment of his family is a profile in courage. He was the protector, provider, and vanguard of our tribe. I will miss him dearly.” – Kabir Gangahar

CHAUTA: Thursday, March 17, at 4pm at Hindu Temple of Nebraska, 13010 Arbor Street.
