APPRECIATION: Gamini Gunawardena by Ivan Corea

Posted on 16 July 2017 by admin

GAMINI GUNAWARDENA

Gamini Gunawardena, longtime resident of London, England passed away at St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington early morning on Saturday, July 15th. A popular personality, his sudden demise has sent shockwaves not only among the Sri Lankan expatriate community in the U.K. but extendede to the global Sri Lankan community. An Old Thomian, Gamini is a past-president of the S. Thomas' College, Mt. Lavinia OBA in the U.K. He is the son of the late Patrick Gunawardena, former Sub-Warden at S. Thomas' College, Mt. Lavinia and Mrs. Phoebe Gunawardena of Asgiriya, Gampaha. He is survived by his mother and two sisters Patricia (U.K.) and Dilini (Canada) and niece Christine, nephews Pressie and Bradley all living in Toronto, Canada.

A livewire of Sri Lankan activity in London, Gamini was well known as a tireless community activist who did not have the word 'no' in his vocabulary. He had attended his last meeting with "Festival of Cricket – FOC" Organizing Committee last Sunday, July 9th, in London. He was Chairman of a Sub-Committee.

As we speak, arrangements are been made to fly Gamini's body to Sri Lanka where funeral arrangements are been made. The Times of Sri Lanka will be posting details of the funeral services once finalised. 

Ivan Corea, another Thomian batchmate of Gamini's has penned a beautiful appreciation which is posted below:
