Dr. Roy Nicholas MBBS, MRCP, DCH, MD passed away on 29th April 2006 in Leeds, United Kingdom. He leaves behind his wife Dr. Shanti Babapulle, two daughters and three sons.
Roy and his family lived in the United Kingdom for many years where he set up a medical practice in Leeds with his wife. He also had a practice in Sri Lanka and used to commute on a regular basis between Sri Lanka and the United Kingdom. About 18 months ago, he underwent surgery in the UK.
Roy, who lived in Mayfield Road, will be remembered as a quiet spoken academic who was a member of the most successful team fielded by St. Benedict's College - it was still in its heyday as the leading school in the country - when it won the prestigious national "Quiz Kids" competition run by Radio Ceylon.
With great sorrow and sadness .................
