Sarb Parkash Syngal

February 24, 1942 ~ January 15, 2023 (age 80) 80 Years Old

Tribute

Sarb Parkash Syngal went to be with God on January 15, 2023 surrounded by his family after a two month respiratory battle in the hospital. He was born on February 24, 1942 in Ludihana, India, in the state of Punjab, where he completed his education at St. Columba's High School in New Delhi, India and obtained a bachelor's degree from Khalsa College in Dev Nagar, India. As a young boy, Sarb enjoyed playing cricket, Scrabble, and card games, especially excelling in the Indian card game Seep.

Following Indian tradition, Sarb found and married his wife, Madhu, in 1970 after placing an ad in the local Indian newspaper. They met once and knew each other briefly before the wedding. Sarb and Madhu eventually settled in New Delhi, India to begin their family. In 1978, Sarb’s mother passed away at a young age, so he decided to leave his family’s brick manufacturing business and emigrated to Houston, Texas, where his brother, Vinod, and sister, Asha, and their families also resided for a few years after marriage. 

In 1979, the rest of Sarb's family joined him in Houston after he began what would be a 10-year career with General Electric as a machinist. After a short stint selling life insurance with Metropolitan Life, Sarb eventually found a career in retail sales until he retired in 2009. He enjoyed traveling with his family, eating delicious foods, watching Bollywood movies, and investing in the stock market, often spending his retired days watching CNBC. Sarb loved cheering on all Houston sports teams, including the Rockets, Texans, and more recently the Astros. Cricket remained his favorite sport of all.  One of their biggest fans, Sarb rarely missed an opportunity to watch his granddaughters play softball, volleyball and attend their artistic performances. Most of all, he loved being married to and doting on his sweetheart Madhu. Sarb and Madhu celebrated their 52nd wedding anniversary in October 2022.

Sarb is preceded in death by his father, Ram Sarup Syngal, mother, Padama Vati Syngal, daughter, Charu Syngal, twin sister, Renu Garg, bother, Vinod Syngal, and brother-in-laws, Puran Aggarwal, Dinesh Garg, Deepak Agarwal, and Gian Jain.  He is survived by his beloved and devoted wife, Madhu, his loving children, Kunal Syngal, Jennifer Syngal, Sipra Boyd (Scott), and two precious granddaughters he adored, Samantha Sri Boyd and Stella Sarswati Boyd. He also leaves behind, his wonderful sisters, Asha Jain, Neelam Agarwal, Promila Agarwal (Subash), sister-in-law, Nisha Syngal, brother-in-law, Madan Kansal (Meenakshi), sister-in-law, Bina Aggarwal, and several admiring nieces and nephews, including Archana Garg (Vinay), Vikas Garg (Tripti), Vishal Garg (Aradhana), Komal Jain (Craig Hershberg), Rosita Joyce (Patrick), Vanita Gupta (Anuj), Amy Markan (Raj), Aarti Agarwal (Sukesh), Vivek Agarwal (Pooja), Eric Agarwal, Salena Accardo (Carl), Hans Agarwal (Annie), Mohit Kansal, Mayank Kansal (Yuyang), Rosy Aggarwal, Shalu Aggarwal, as well as a number of beautiful grand nieces and nephews.

The world is a little less sweet and gentle without him. He will be missed dearly but remains in our hearts.
