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:

ERNEST COREA

ERNEST COREA was one of Sri Lanka’s distinguished diplomats, who was awarded the Deshabandu Class 1 National Day honour for meritorious diplomatic service. He has, in addition, been an influential newspaperman and writer.

He was the son of Reverend Canon Ivan Corea and Ouida Corea. He was born in Borella, a suburb of Colombo, the capital of Ceylon, now Sri Lanka. Educated at Royal College, Colombo and the University of Ceylon, Ernest served with the United Nations in Washington DC and in the Congo (Zaire).

He joined the editorial staff of the Associated Newspapers of Ceylon Ltd. (Lake House) direct from university and rose to be Editor of the Ceylon Daily News from 1966-1970 and the Ceylon Observer from 1970-1971. Immediately before holding those positions, he was Chief Administrative Officer of the Editorial Department at Lake House. 

Ernest was Features Editor, foreign affairs specialist and editorial writer of the Straits Times of Singapore. He served as Director of the Publications Division at the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in Ottawa, Canada. Subsequently, he was the founding Director of the IDRC’s Cooperative (North-South) Research Programs Division.

He was appointed to the diplomatic service of the Government of Sri Lanka by President J. R.

He was entrusted with several successful negotiations connected with external support for the country’s development programs.

He was responsible for organising the very first state visit of a President of Sri Lanka to the US, at the invitation of President Ronald Reagan in 1984.

His book ‘Non-Alignment – the dynamics of a movement,’ was published by the Canadian Institute of International Affairs. Another book, North-South: Beyond Dialogue, was also published in Canada. 

He was Chairman of the Commonwealth Select Committee on the Media and Development, and is a life-member of the Asia Society’s advisory group in Washington DC.
