Tributes shared by the Friends and relatives:

” I worked with Maurice (we call him Maurice uncle, though he was more like a friend to me) at Jaffna College Institute of Vaddukoddai.
We share the same alma mater.
Maurice uncle always walk smart and he has a captivating smile. When I meet with some of the Christian trainees to pray and sing, he would also join in. He made the coarse stony field – used as grounds by us – as a playground within a week, so that we could have our first cricket match against Jaffna College staff. I cherish good memories of working with him, and we have also cycled together all the way from Jaffna to Vaddukoddai in those days, daily, me always struggling to stay abreast with him. He was an inspiration to many of us.
Farewell Maurice uncle. See you there”.

S. K. Xavier

Via Zoom during the Service

My heartfelt condolences go out to Maurice uncle’s family. We will surely miss the presence of a truly lovable and kind person. Thanks to Jeyendran anna for sharing the family connections , it is sad that I have met him so many times in different locations including Sri Lanka but never knew the relationship. I am truly sorry for the loss especially to Solomons clan. He has done a lots of charitable works and his support towards SJC . Our uncle will be missed and he will never be forgotten.

May his soul rest in peace.
