Kamal and Balbir Singh - Victims of drunk driving in Menlo Park, California

Kamal Singh, age 45 and Balbir Singh, age 50, died on October 24, 2013, on a street in Menlo Park, California.

Just before 7:00 p.m., the husband and wife were walking their dog when they were struck from behind by a vehicle. The vehicle then crossed the center divider, hit another car and struck a tree.

Kamal and Balbir were pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the car, Marjorie Reitzell, age 54, of Redwood City, was taken to Stanford Hospital. She will be charged with two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter and DUI. She had a DUI conviction last year.

Kamal and Balbir were originally from Fiji.

Family members describe them as a hard working couple who had been married for
Angels of God, pray for Kamal
and Balbir
over 20 years.

They are also described as helpful, accommodating, humorous and always smiling.

Kamal and Balbir are survived by many loving friends and relatives including their three teenaged children, Komal, Shalveer and Rema.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and gone the next. Amen. 

God save us from the drunk and doped up drivers. They are killing us, Father. Amen.

Pray that Kamal and Balbir are in heaven. Pray that they are at peace and are with God. Amen.
