The man, a retired Punjabi-language teacher from Abbotsford, apparently moved to Wisconsin with his family several years ago, was shot by the gunman and is still in hospital.
Six died when Wade Michael Page — a man with ties to neo-nazi groups — burst into the temple last Sunday and began shooting.
Page was shot by police, then took his own life.
Investigators have now returned control of the Wisconsin temple back to the congregation, who removed the bloodied carpets and repaired damage. Temple leaders said they would leave one bullet hole as a lasting memorial to the victims.
The temple re-opened on Sunday and other temples around the world, including one in Abbotsford, B.C., joined in singing a special hymn at exactly 10:30 a.m. PT — the time of the shooting — to remember the victims.
Many first-time visitors came to the Abbotsford temple Sunday to show their solidarity with the Sikh community.
Abbotsford West MLA Mike De Jong urged all community members to take a stand against evil.
"The way we minimize that risk though is by speaking out together in solidarity and saying we are one human family and an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us," De Jong said.
A temple spokesperson said the Abbotsford Khalsa Diwan is still trying to track down the name and contact information for the retired Punjabi teacher who once lived in Abbotsford, and who may now be fighting for his life in a Wisconsin hospital.
