Virender Pal Madan

Queens, NY —Virender Pal Madan, 84, passed away peacefully on March 3rd, 2024 in his home of 45 years in Flushing Queens, New York, surrounded by his family. Born in Sajowal, India on March 3rd, 1940 to Munshi Ram Madan and Jamuna Devi Madan, he lived a wonderful life with a loving, extended family.

Virender’s amazing journey included the partitioning of India. Making the trek from Sajowal (now in Pakistan) to New Delhi in 1947. He often told stories of the treacherous and difficult trip to India. And of the kindness of his neighbors in helping his family move from the country. He always focused on the kindness of people.

Virender met his wife, Chandra Kanta Madan, in 1962 when his cousin, Dharshana, was going to the same nursing school as his future wife. Prem Arora, Chandra’s younger brother, who would pick up his sister Darshana after school, had connected with Virender. In 1966, Virender and Chandra were wed; it was one of the few love marriages of the time. They had their sons Vinay in 1968 and Rajesh in 1969.

In 1973, Virender and Chandra made the exciting and life changing decision to come to America with their children, part of the original diaspora of Indians coming to America. Little did Virender know how important this part of his journey would be in setting the foundation of his family. Virender’s immigration was supported by his brother, Manohar Lal Madan and sister-law, Darshana Madan. Virender’s brother helped him get his first job as a clerk at Rashtri.

In 1978, Virender purchased his first and final home. This modest home became the central point for growth and bonding across his family, as Virender and his wife sponsored multiple other family members and continued the diaspora of Indians to America. These sponsorships proved to be integral to his future success as an entrepreneur.

In 1985, Virender left his job as a clerk to start a small business with his brothers-in-law, the next key milestone in his journey. This small business began with the operation of a corner newsstand on Broadway in Manhattan. Later the business grew with the purchase of a successful stationery store and several small real estate ventures. Unified, the family was able to build a successful business that secured their families futures.

Virender’s sons married in 1996 & 1998, respectively, and continuing to live in the vicinity, added the next generation to the family mix. His grandchildren were always his pride and joy. He always welcomed and enjoyed the time he spent with them, especially when they offered him ice-cream and cake. Over the years, he enjoyed trips to many exciting locations, birthdays and family gatherings.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 58 years, Chandra Kanta, his supportive sons, Vinay & Rajesh, his wonderful daughters-in-law, Shivani & Ruchira, his loving grandchildren, Pranav, Deven, Aarya, & Shalin and a great number of faithful, close family members.

The funeral service will be held at Moloney’s Lake Funeral Home & Cremation Center – 132 Ronkonkoma Avenue Lake Ronkonkoma, New York 11779 on Friday, March 8, 2024 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm EST. The Memorial Gathering will be held after the ceremony at 148-25 58th Road Flushing, NY.
