To honour the legacy of Hunsdeep Singh Rangar–a son, father, brother, public servant, entrepreneur, radio show host with CHIN 97.9 FM and organizer of Ottawa’s annual South Asian Fest–a fund has been established at Carleton University, to name the Undergraduate Clubs and Societies room to Huns Club, in the new Nicol Building. Located at the core of Carleton’s campus, the Nicol Building will serve as a space for students, faculty, staff and alumni to meet, share and develop ideas, including experiential initiatives and to support student entrepreneurship.
Hunsdeep Singh Rangar was recognizable from afar for his infectious smile, unending wit and charming original humour. He touched an endless number of people and brought smiles to each one during his short but fulfilling life. Hunsdeep “Huns” was only 43 when he passed away of a heart attack on June 7, 2019. Describing himself as being “made in India and packaged in Canada,” his legacy lives on with every beat of music that plays on Ottawa’s airways.
Gifts to this fund will help ensure that his legacy also lives on by naming a room in Hunsdeep’s honour for students to engage in meaningful collaboration and learning experiences. It will celebrate his ethos of promoting harmony among communities and preservation of their traditions as they weave their way into Canada’s multicultural fabric.
All donations will go directly towards naming the Undergraduate Clubs and Societies room in the Nicol Building–the future home of the Sprott School of Business–after Hunsdeep Singh Rangar. This room will honour his legacy by creating a collaborative workspace in support of future generations of entrepreneurs and community builders.
