It is with a grieving heart that Eeshani and I received the sad news of the passing away of Anton.
We take this opportunity to write to you, Blossom, to express our deep sorrow in your bereavement, and also to offer our heartfelt sympathies to Anne-Marie, Shani, Sonali, Thushi and Tammy.

As a newly-married couple, we enjoyed the warm friendship and hospitality of both you and Aton, since 1979.
Many were the pleasant times we had spent with both of you, as well as...

Joyce and I are deeply grieved that the world has lost a beautiful soul. We are one of the many who had the privilege of knowing him and moving closely with him and his family when they were in Edmonton.

When we met Anton and Blossom in the late seventies, we were impressed by their humility. Coming from an industrious family in Sri Lanka and having achieved great heights in his career, Anton never boasted of anything. In SriLanka some poor students were beneficiaries of his...

Chitra and I would like to convey our deepest sympathies to Blossom and Children. I met Anton in Sri Lanka and he was my mentor on computers and our knowledge on computers 50 years ago was almost nil.He was real gentleman, very quiet and an unassuming individual. Then it so happened we meet again in Edmonton Canada and what a coincidence. He was always a very good adviser and had an excellent knowledge on various topics and was very non judgmental. Sri Lankan community is definitely going to...

Anton, Blossom and their children were the first Sri Lankans we met in Edmonton in September 1976 That friendship we cherish so dearly. It culminated in many get-togethers and good times we had.

Anton was a man of integrity and wisdom. Always willing to help anyone seeking his advice. He was a gentle soul who never harmed a fellow human being with words or deeds.

The pinnacle of our friendship was a trip to Mexico via San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego. What a...

Louis, Leilani, Kaitlynn and myself are very sorry to hear of your loss. I will always think fondly of the time we visited together in Victoria. Hoping you find comfort in all the caring messages sent to you all. Love Debbie Van Solkema

Our heartfelt condolences to Blossom and children.
Anton was my teacher and a family friend. My father introduced me to Anton in the late 60s as the role model of a professional accountant who was to be respected and admired. I have fond memories of going to the home of Blossom and Anton, both in Nawala and down Sumner Place, to receive his assistance in my preparation for my accounting examinations; on many occasions, I recall that he would have one of his daughters on his knee. ...

Deepest Sympathizes to the Samarasinghe family. I knew Anton, Blossom and kids briefly in Edmonton and Fort McMurray. May he rest in peace.
