The family of an international student killed in the Milton, Mississauga shooting on Sept. 12 has started a GoFundMe page to cover several costs relating to his death.

28-year-old Satwinder Singh of Milton died yesterday (Sept. 17) at the Hamilton General Hospital with his family and friends by his side.

Singh was an international student from India who was working part-time at MK Auto Repairs at the time of the shooting.

The GoFundMe was created on Sept. 16 when Singh was still on life support. The fundraiser has received a resurgence of support in the last day as the news of Singh’s passing spread.

In the description of the GoFundMe page, it says the family is struggling with expenses related to bringing Singh’s body back to India.

“It is a tough time for our family, and we need prayers from all of you,” GoFundMe organizer, Aman Panesar said in the description. “Satwinder was a loving son, brother, and grandson who will be missed daily.”

Singh is described as having a passion for reading and writing, which inspired him to become a poet. He finished his BBA and MBA in marketing in India and came to Canada to study Global Business Management.

He was an international student at Conestoga College and completed his studies in August 2022. He was working part-time at MK Auto Repairs to support himself financially.

The GoFundMe goal is set to $50,000 with 460 donations made and $27,208 raised at the time of publication.
