Hiralal Agarwal, Chappaqua resident, passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his loving family on September 20th, 2022, at the age of 92.
Hiralal was born on October 25th, 1929, to Jawaharlal and Ramrati Agarwal in Bawal, India, in the state of Haryana. He attended St. Stephen’s College in New Delhi, India and received a Bachelor of Arts in 1949, and subsequently he attended the University of Lucknow, India and received a Masters in Economic and Law in 1953 (MA, LLB). Upon graduating, Hiralal initially opened his own law practice and later a successful business in finance. He also served as President of the Lion’s Club in New Delhi, India.
On May 8th, 1955, he married Nirmal Mittal. Together, they had two children, Arun, and Anita, whom they raised in their Kamla Nagar house in Delhi, India. In 1997, Hiralal and Nirmal moved to Chappaqua, NY to be closer to their children and grandchildren. Hiralal continued to work here in the US at United Cerebral Palsy until his retirement in 2018, at the age of 89.
Hiralal is remembered for his boisterous laugh, his stories of growing up in India at the time of the Indian Independence, and his strong support of his entire extended family. As the oldest brother in the extended family, he provided a launching pad and home in Delhi for many of his brothers and cousins as if they were his own children.
Hiralal is survived by his wife, Nirmal Agarwal, their two children, Arun Agarwal and Anita Gupta, daughter-in-law, Vinita Agarwal, son-in-law, Sunil Gupta, his four grandchildren, Shivani and Divya Agarwal, and Akshay and Neha Gupta, his three brothers, Bhagwan, Daulat and Moti, and his cousins, Brahma, Ashok and Brijendra, and many loving nieces and nephews.
