It is with profound sadness that the Lalli family (Maniit, Paul, Nikita, Jarnel and Simi) and Leigh family (Barb, Brent and Kenny) announce the passing of their beloved Kashaana Lalli and Robert Leigh.

Their zeal for adventure and each other could only be described as a higher life and love. They shared a parallel reality of close families, clear values, academic accomplishment and the love of sport that crossed paths in the spring of 2022. They have been inseparable ever since. A mutual passion for flight found them exploring coastal beaches and mountain reaches as vast as the opportunities that lay ahead of them. A passion that took their lives but will never take the inspiration of love they shared with all who knew them. The families extend their deepest gratitude to Squamish Search and Rescue, Squamish RCMP and others that were involved in the rescue effort.

A celebration of Kashaana’s and Robert’s life together was held on June 9, 2024 at Bradner Hall.
