Ben Le Vay

Rachel
Dear Cutters,
      I have just received this email from Ben's partner Janice. I know that those of you who knew Ben will be as shocked and saddened as I am.  I have sent Janice our deepest sympathies.

Dear Rachel
I am so sorry to inform you that Ben had a massive heart attack in Sri Lanka on 5th December and despite the best efforts of me and the doctors at Peradeniya Teaching Hospital died.
His daughter Rebecca and son Tom are devastated, as am I.
I am returning to the UK on Tuesday 13th with Benedict’s body.
Could you please let the others in your Norfolk group know.

Shocked,  a very nice fellow.  Always enjoyable company in a boat.  Would like to attend funeral if anyone knows any details.

So very sad to hear.
Ben was such a nice guy and always had a lovely anecdote or two to share wether in the boats rowing or just helping out - just a really nice all round guy, who will be sadly missed from our club.
Please pass on our very best wishes to his family and loved ones, and let us know if there is to be a whip round for a Cutters wreath or something similar.
Matt

I didn’t really know Ben but, if he was a member of the Langstone Cutters then he must have been a good egg.  My heartfelt condolences go to his wife and family.

So very sad to hear this. Ben was always such fun and so interesting to row with.  A truly horrendous situation for Janice and my heartfelt condolences go out to her, his family and friends.
