ObituaryIt is with deep regret that I inform you of the sudden death of a devout and colourful Old Ben ROY “CHARLIE” RUPESINGHE in Sri Lanka today. He is the eldest brother of old Ben Rienzie (of Monash, ACT in Australia) and nephew of Old Ben Terrence Perera.

Roy was a cricket enthusiast extraordinaire and an ardently vocal supporter of St Benedict’s cricket XIs in the 1950s and 1960s. He was always there by 11.30 AM of a Friday afternoon at SBC’s inter-school encounters even in the days when College did not have a cricket ground and ‘home’ matches were played at the Railway grounds in Mount Mary, Borella.
Our prayers are with Rienzie as well as the entire Rupesinghe family in Sri Lanka.

Further details when available.
