Kaleka Brothers Remember Their Father, His Faith
Sikhs have returned to their Oak Creek temple, for the first time since the shootings that killed six worshippers, and injured four others.
Amardeep and Pardeep Kaleka helped organize this morning’s memorial service. They’re the sons of the temple president, Satwant Singh Kaleka, who died fighting off the gunman.
The brothers talked with WUWM’s Ann-Elise Henzl yesterday about their father, and his faith.
They say it was always was important to him, even when he didn’t have a lot of time to spare. Their father came to the United States with little money, and scraped to get by, until he could buy the family’s first gas station on the south side.
Later, he bought more and more businesses… and eventually rose to the rank of a temple leader.
Pardeep Kaleka is now 34 years old, and is a teacher in Milwaukee. Thirty-six-year-old Amardeep Kaleka, is a filmmaker who lives in California
