Special Announcement (Professor Valentine Joseph)


It is with a heavy heart that CUFSAA is announcing the passing away of the former Professor of Mathematics, University of Colombo, Professor Valentine Joseph, in Sri Lanka, on March 15, 2017!

Students who had the privilege of learning from him will surely remember him as an exceptional human being, a top scholar (especially in the area of Relativity), and an inspiring teacher who opened the minds of hundreds of students to see the universe in a novel and beautiful way. His vast student body scattered in North America will no doubt remember the legacy of this wonderful human being.

 The University of Colombo viewing was at NAT on Friday March 17th 2017, from 9:30 – 11:30am.

The Funeral was on Saturday March 18th 2017 at 3 PM, Borella cemetery.

If someone wants to send flowers to the house for Saturday morning the address is

Mrs. Antonia Joseph
127/1 Ananda Rajakaruna Mawatha
Colombo 8

May his soul Rest In Peace!

We intend to prepare a special CUFSAA tribute edition of CUFSAA Newsletter for Professor Joseph soon. Please send your stories and fond memories to about Prof. Joseph for inclusion to share with fellow CUFSAA membership.

Thank you!
