On June 21st, 2020, Kashif Sheikh took his family on a trip to Kelowna, BC to celebrate Father’s Day and a birthday. The trip took a tragic turn when his eldest daughter slipped into the water and wasn’t able to come up. Doing what any parent would do, Kashif jumped in and was able to push his daughter to safety but ultimately wasn’t able to make it out on his own.
Kashif put his child’s life before his own, saving his daughter, making the ultimate sacrifice to keep his family intact. He leaves behind his loving wife, and his four young and beautiful children. Their daughters are ages 13 and 9, and sons are 7 and 3.
On Father's Day, we lost a loving husband, father, brother, son, and friend. Kashif was loved by each person who interacted with him - his smile, warmth, and big heart touched each person he met. He left this world doing what he did best - being a father.
He worked endlessly to provide support and care for his family. Our family started this GoFundMe to support his wife and young children with funeral expenses, educational funds, and other costs to support and bolster them during this time and in the future. Funds will go directly to Kashif's wife.
We would also like to thank each and every individual who has contributed to Kashif's family. We are very grateful for all the support the family has been receiving.
