Pran Nath Mehta
B.A. Dip. Ed. (Oxon), M. Ed. (McGill)
June 2, 1928 – December 5, 2019
Pran passed away peacefully at Joliette Hospital in his 91st year. He will be dearly missed by his wife Renate Beck Mehta, his children Kiran and Stephanie, his brothers Praful Nath, and Prem Nath, sister Devi Thapar, and his family, friends and community members . A respected teacher and elder, Pran Nath’s advice was frequently sought and highly valued.
Born in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and fluent in several languages, he was at home in many parts of the world over the course of his life—including Paris, Zofingen, Frankfurt, New Dehli, and since 1970, Rawdon, Quebec. Pran Nath was a Mason for 50 years with the Rawdon Centennial Lodge #135, and a long-time member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 198. He will be remembered as an avid student of history, a fine photographer, a dedicated practitioner of English, and most of all, a tireless raconteur.
There will be a Celebration of Life for Pran Nath Mehta in the spring of 2020.
