He was driving an SUV when it slammed into the back of a tractor trailer. He died on scene.

Singh was a math teacher at Tamanawis Secondary School.

“The true testament to Suminder’s impact is that although I never witnessed him teach a single lesson (class), I knew all about his teaching,” teacher Harman Pandher said in a Facebook post.

“Suminder’s students loved him and he loved them — even more than mathematics — and they would often talk about what a positive influence he had on their lives.”

Friends have created a GoFundMe page that hopes to raise $10,000 to create a legacy award in his name.

A vigil will be held on Saturday at Tamanawis Secondary.
