Memorial Service for Late Old Ben Aloy Peiris on Friday, 19th April 2013
ObituaryIt is with profound sadness we inform the demise of Old Ben Aloy Peiris, who passed away at the age of 91 and was cremated in UK in January 2013.

According to his daughter (Charmini Anthony who is now in Sri Lanka), the Old Bens in UK gathered together and participated in the funeral service, and fulfilled the families’ wish by granting him a Benedictine sendoff. (Late Old Ben Aloy Peiris was dressed wearing the College Tie, the casket draped with the College flag and the College Anthem too was played on CD and sung by the Old Bens present, and all arrangements were looked into by our ever loyal Ben Tony Mutukrishna)

The ashes of Late Old Ben Aloy Peiris will be laid to rest on 19th April 2013 at Madampitiya Cemetery, following a Memorial service at St. Lucia’s Cathedral at 4.00 p.m.

Late Old Ben Aloy Peiris was born in 1921 and had his entire education at St. Benedicts’ College and was a boarder at the College Hostel. He excelled in sports, captaining the college football team in 1940, and also represented the college cricket team and was an excellent Athlete too.

Bens young and Old, it would be appropriate that we all old boys, especially the old boarders, past cricketers and soccer players together with Rev. Fathers’ and Rev. Brothers affiliated to St. Benedict’s College, congregate at this memorial service and thereafter at the Burial site as a mark of respect to our loyal Old Ben, Late Aloy Peiris.
