07 June 1944 – 24 Dec. 2021

It is with profound sadness we learn of Lyn Wiratunga’s demise in London, England on December 24, 2021. He was a Pre-70s Peterite who excelled in sports – Rugby, Basketball, Hockey & Tennis. Lyn’s late father was the brother of our second Rector, Rev. Fr. Basil Wiratunga. Lyn lived on Davidson Road, Bambalapitiya close to college. He had a few first cousins at college too – Nihal Wiratunga, Lalith Wiratunga, Asoka Wiratunga and Lal Wiratunga. Lyn’s sister Shirani is married to another Peterite sportsman Daya Chandraratne of Davidson Road – both residents on Toronto, Canada.

Lyn passed out as an Engineer but changed course whilst in the U.K. and became a Professional Accountant.

May Lyn Rest in Peace!
