EKANAYAKE - KIRI BANDA - The family of Mr. Kiri Banda Ekanayake (KB), born 4th October 1926 of Matale, wish to announce that KB passed away peacefully on 5th September 2016 at Asiri Surgical Hospital, Colombo. KB joined the Ceylon Civil Service in 1960, and served as a senior diplomat in a number of foreign postings until his retirement in 1981. KB is remembered by his wife - Nanda, children - Kirti, Senarath, Asoka, Visaka and grandchildren - Katherine, Samantha, Nicholas, Jarryd, Avantika and Avindra. KB in the last years of his life came to the realisation that death is a normal part of the wheel of life, and requested a “no fuss” end. In keeping with his wishes, his body was donated for research to the Medical Faculty of the Colombo University, with no funeral service being held. We wish to thank Dr. Vajira Senaratne for his care and concern, the staff and management of Cinnamon Grove Retirement Home in Bandaragama and the staff at Asiri Surgical Hospital, for their professionalism, care and comfort. We also wish to thank all those who helped us in numerous ways and shared our grief during this difficult time. 133139
