Please circulate this information among our batch mates
As I wrote to you a few days ago, Siri Nanayakkara passed away on 21st January. Below is the notice being sent to New Zealand papers
Many will remember him for his good humoured pranks, particularly in the Block. My late wife Bella had been at the receiving end on many occasions.
I recall (though I don’t know how, through all that arrack) Siri and I had great fun doing a double-act at the Law Medical for three years
Individuals will carry different, but happy memories.
Siri was a single-handed GP in Gisborne, New Zealand and retired only an year or so ago. He was a dedicated family man
The home address is: 47 Hillview Terrace, Gisborne, New Zealand
As discussed with Aunty here is the obituary we have sent in the NZ paper:
