  1. I want to express my heartfelt sorrow for the passing of Sumith
    The man I knew had a spirit of life that encompassed everything he did
    His big personality, generous heart and sense of humour were some of the qualities that endeared him to so many
    He loved his family more than anything and as a colleague of some ten years I can attest to the many times he spoke so warmly and fondly of his closest and dearest loved ones
    Infuriating as he could be sometimes at the end of it all Sumith came from a place of genuine kindness and sincerity
    I will indeed miss his presence, his booming voice, his laughter, his great cooking, his travel tales and updates on the grandchildren
    May he know everlasting peace and tranquility and may there be comfort and serenity for all those who mourn his passing

  2. Our Deepest Condolences go out to everyone in his family & extended family
    Take strength in God during these times

    Love & Prayers
    Tyrone & family

  3. Our darling friend Sums, it’s surreal that we say goodbye to you, it doesn’t seem possible Sums to even think of this, to say I am numb and sad is an understatement, disbelief, pain ☹️
    I still can’t comprehend that you’ve left us our precious friend
    Kellbourne Dr, will never be the same without you my precious friend ☹️, my big brother, my loyal friend, our cuddly teddy bear, you were there for us through good and bad days,
    Our promise to you Sums, is that we will be there for your precious wife Gilly, we will cry together and laugh together, we will hold you so close to our hearts. We will make you proud Sums, if I can be half the person you are Sums, your love & generosity towards others I will always keep so close to my heart. Good bye my sweet precious friend, the world lost an amazing human being but heaven gained an angel
    RIP Sums, we will always love you

    Deepest sympathies to Gillian and all his loving family, his sister in law in Sri Lanka Deidre, the Berenger family, friends and loved ones and especially to Denise his dear Mum and his cousin Pam Jansz whom he adored and loved so dearly. ♥️ He loved and spoke about all of you so much.

  8. Dear Gillian Surely this will be a difficult time for you and the family. Sumith’s loss will certainly be heartfelt, his presence sorely missed and irreplaceable. However we can be comforted by the words from the Holy Scriptures as found in Romans 14:8 If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord With love and blessings Gerard & Umanga

  9. Dearest Gillian,

    My heartfelt condolences to you and the family. I was able to watch the beautiful service. The whole service was a tribute to someone who had brightened the lives of not only his own family but all those who knew him. You all spoke so well of Sumit who loved and cared for you all. I know the coming days are not going to be easy and you will feel his absence but I pray that our Lord will fill that void in your lives and comfort you all at this time of loss.
    God bless you Gillian.

    Lots of love,

    Nelun Obeyesekere

  10. A thought of condolences and comfort goes out to the grieving family members of Sumith and to his loving cousins, Rohan,Michael & Janine (Wijesuriya family).

    God will accept him with open arms for all the good he has done while he was on this earth.
    Till we meet again rest in God’s house.

  12. A beautiful service for a wonderful human being! Hard to match his genuineness and compassion. Truly fitting tributes by his lovely family. Sumith! you will be sorely missed by all who loved & cared for you. Our heartfelt condolences to each & everyone of his family. We grieve together with you. Rest In Eternal Peace our dear & sincere friend, till we meet on that beautiful shore! We wait to share your humour & laughter!

  13. What a beautiful send off. I could feel the power of love through this screen. Big hugs to you Gillian and the children.
    Sumith always saw humour in everything. He found a way of taking your mind away from worrying about something with a joke or a show stopping hilarious comment, and if he was given half the chance he would have tried his level best to cheer all of you up today by saying “Here what is all this fuss men” 🙂
    May you rest bro. We will miss you and we will never forget you. Your passing has touched all of us on the food page.You were such a talented cook with a huge heart and an unforgettable personality.
    With all our love, and may you rest in the arms of the angels until we all meet again one day for a massive party with your delicious Lamprais (God’s going to love it)
    God Bless you Gillian.

  14. Our heartfelt sympathies to you all during this very sad time. What a beautiful service and touching eulogies.
    Sumith catered my engagement party back in 1997 and I’ve been ordering lumpries from him regularly since then! A truly magnificent sole!!! I have such fond memories of him and his antics.
    May he In Peace and May Peace Be with you all.

    Kind regards
    Rozanne Willenberg

    PS: my late Father and Sumith’s mum were first cousins

  15. Sumith, I was blessed with the wonderful privilege of you and your wonderful families Sincere and humble friendships . Never will be forgotten. Rest in heavenly peace.

  16. My very deepest sympathies to the entire family… U. Sumith was honestly such an amazing person, I only met him a few times but he always seemed to be like an old friend, who I could sit back with and not just have serious conversations, but more often, share crazy rowdy stories where he would often burst out into a bellowing laugh. The part about the food and the scotch with no coke was spot on. The only time I have ever got fatter in my life is after spending just two weeks with him and aunty.

    I also absolutely loved his relationship with A. Gillian, they would be jokingly ribbing each other all the time, but on so many occasions (during our many conversations) he would sit with me and tell me what an absolutely amazing person she was (not that I needed convincing of that). And yes, he never stopped talking about his kids, and (especially?) his grandkids. My heart goes out to all of you. He was clearly not just a fantastic husband, father and friend, but also just an overall amazing human being who would have been loved by anyone who got to know him.

    May his soul rest in peace.

  24. Sumith sweetheart, you were unique, this was a mould God broke the day you were born: God gave you a generous heart, a sincere & kind nature, & humour to see the funny side of life. God created an angel that he sent as a friend to us.
    I am so so grateful for the long & beautiful friendship we shared. We were there for each other at the worst & best times in our lives. You were ‘naughty’ & had the ability to call me all kinds of names, in a way that made me laugh & never upset. You loved a good gossip, a glass of wine, a giggle & a good old belly laugh. You were an amazing chef, creating magic each time you went into the kitchen. You used that talent to make hundreds of people smile
    Sumith my angel, I miss you & our weekly chats, the many wicked, funny emails that cracked me up. I will miss all the news & updates re our friends that you got through the many hundreds of ‘contacts’ that you had. I (& a few hundred more) will miss your delicious lumpraise & bruedhers.
    Gillian & your 2 beautiful girls were your life….nothing mattered more….till your Grandsons came along & grabbed a big chunk out of your heart.
    God sent you to brighten our world & that you did with your big smile & huge warm hugs. Your wit & your gift of manipulating the English language was amazing & funny. Your phrases eg: “Almirah top got & have” used in the old SL were hilarious

    Gillian, Gillain & Sharyn, that was a beautiful beautiful service & thank you for allowing us to share this day with you. My deepest & heartfelt sympathies to you & your precious families. I pray that God will give you strength to cope with your grief & loss of such a special person.
    It is with a very sad & broken heart I say “Sumith sweetheart, Rest In Peace my friend, till we meet again.

    We feel very blessed to have known him and shared him for the last 6 years. We pray for strength and guidance in the days ahead. A beautiful man and a beautiful tribute to his life. Much love

  30. Not enough times I got to enjoy the company of Uncle Sumith each year, but knowing that he would be at family gatherings would quickly bring a smile to my face. Uncle Sumith would effortlessly raise the spirits of a room with his silver tongue and kind hearted demeanour, never failing to bring the room to hysterical laughter in the process. Knowing that I won’t hear him call me son, tell me that he misses us, taste his delicious cooking or share a laugh with him saddens me beyond belief. Know that my love is with you all and that every memory of Uncle Sumith will be forever held close to our hearts.

  31. Gillian our heartfelt sympathy on the loss of your Prince and our good friend Sumith.
    During this time of sorrow, may the gentle presence of God and the caring love of family and friends help to comfort you.
    We know you close you were to him and how much you love him. We share your grief at this very difficult time.
    He was a great friend to us, always being there for us at the time of our need.
    Thank you and family for the thoughtful and meaningful way the service of celebration of Sumith’s life was conducted and live streamed out so that we and thousands of his friends scattered around the globe could part take.
    It meant a lot to us to hear how he touched so many people’s lives.
    You brought light and comfort to us stuck at home feeling hopeless during this very difficult time. As usual your calm and gentle approach to life shone through.
    Thank you for sharing the celebration of Sumith’s life with us.
    We will always remember how kind and helpful Sumith has been to us. We consider ourselves so lucky to have had him in our lives. Sumith, you left us far too early leaving us with a life full of loving and lasting memories.
    Sulan and Asoka

  32. Fond memories of a wonderful man who always had a smile and a loud warm welcome “How are you? Have you eaten? Come in, I’ll make you something.” Our heart felt sympathy to all of his family. Paul Vella and daughters Lasanne and Sharnelle Vella.
