Obituary - Old Ben Leslie Fernando
ObituaryIt is with profound sadness that we announce the demise of Old Ben Leslie Fernando on 3rd March 2012, at the age of 72 after a prolonged illness.

His funeral took place at the Catholic Burial grounds Kotugoda, Seeduwa on Monday 5th March 2012.

Better known as Cowdrey, Late Mr. Leslie represented St. Benedicts’ College 1st XI Cricket team with distinction. He later turned out for Nomands Sports Club in the Inter Club ‘A’ Division tournament. Late Leslie was initially employed as a play ground instructor at the Colombo Municipal Council, and played in the company of some illustrious cricketers who were at the CMC. He went on to captain the CMC team that won many tournaments.
He had over three decades of experience as a sports journalist of the Sunday Observer and the Daily News.

May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen
