Obituary

On Sunday, February 2, Vellayan Kanapathipillai passed away at the age of 79. Vellayan was born on April 9, 1940 in Koddai-Kallar, Batticaloa in Sri Lanka to Vellayan Kanapathipillai and Valliyammai Thambimuththu. He worked as an Agricultural Officer in Sri Lanka before moving to Canada in 1987. He married Parimalam in 1974 and had three children, Kalaivani, Kananathan and Kayanthini.

A spiritual man with a love of his heritage and community, Vellayan was also a charismatic, fun guy who loved to party. Through his tireless work at the temple and involvement with the Tamil diaspora in Ontario, he was well liked and well respected in the community.

Vellayan was preceded in death by his daughter Kalaivani. He is survived by his wife Parimalam, his children Kananathan and Kayanthini, his daughter-in-law Pavani, son-in-law Jesse and his four grandchildren Kajan, Krish, Holden and Nora.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Brampton SPCA.

Vellayan was a good man who loved his family. When Jesse and Kaya got engaged, he immediately invited my wife and I over for dinner so that the two families could meet. And he would call me on New Years day to wish us all well. Whenever I saw him, he always had a smile. He will be missed.
