Obituary of Pranatharthi Haran Amarnath

It is with sadness that the family of P.H. Amarnath (Amar) announce his passing on February 9, 2022 in Toronto, Canada. Amar was born in Madurai, India and spent his youth in Chennai alongside his beloved siblings Kalyani, Ramaswamy, and Gowri. He obtained his Bachelor of Chemical Engineering from Alagappa College of Technology in Chennai, India. In 1969, he departed overseas for Kingston, Ontario, where he completed a Masters of Chemical Engineering at Queen’s University. In 1973, Amar moved to Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta to join Sherritt International (then Sherritt Gordon) as a process engineer. Over the next four decades, Amar had a distinguished career in metallurgy and mining engineering, first with Sherritt, and for the past two decades with his own corporation, AR Consultants. His career took him to locations on all continents of the world. In 2008, Amar was recognized by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum with the J.C. Sproule Northern Exploration Award. Amar is survived by his loving wife of 48 years, Raji, and his three children, Hari Amarnath (Roopa Makwana), Ram Amarnath (Meera Shah) and Ravi Amarnath (Safina Lakhani). Amar is also survived by the joys of his life, his grandchildren, Diviya, Deven, Maya, Keshav, Avni, Kamal and Khayal. In addition to being a devoted husband, father and grandfather, Amar spent countless hours as a mentor, storyteller and music teacher. Amar’s affable and affectionate nature was felt by everyone whom he interacted with. He was a man of great spirituality and faith. In lieu of flowers, the family would request that any memorial donations may be made in Amar’s name to St. John Ambulance Ontario at (copy and paste into a new browser): https://sja.ca/en/donate/provincial. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Due to the current restrictions, we can allow up to 90 people in the service hall at one time.
