Last Journey of Benedict P. D Souza (Benna Master)

Benedict  P. D’Souza popularly known as Benna Master who passed away on Monday, May 4, 2020 at the age of 82 was laid to rest in the presence of family members and few relatives at the Kemmannu Church Cemetery on Tuesday morning. Due to lockdown restrictions, only close family members took part in the simple funeral ceremony. Well wishers, Parishioners, his ex students and others visited his house and paid their last respect to the departed.

Born at Nadu Kudru of Kemmannu, Benedict completed his BCom, MCom & B Ed. and joined Milagres High School Kallianpur and worked there for many years and graduated himself as the Head Master of the same institution. In between he served as H. M. of St. Mary’s High School Kundapur for a few years. His ex students remember him fondly as a very good teacher who loved his students and mixed with them as a colleague and not as a teacher.


In real life he was an all-rounder to the core as apart from being a good teacher, he was a very good Cricketer, a successful businessman and an well known Social worker. He was active in the Church activities and served as the Vice President of the Kemmannu Church for a few years. He was a progressive agriculturist too.

Benna Master will be sorely missed by his family members, students and admirers. His memory will remain fresh in the minds for many more years to come. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

Heartfelt condolences to Lynet aunty Avila, braan, aron, abel, sandra, belinda, benita and all family members. May god bless departed soul of Benna master.

I had very cordial, loving, friendly relationship with Benna master. He use to call me quite often and confide and discuss with me many things. Couple of months ago he called me 5 to 6 times, and also i returned back the calls 5 to 6 times but connection didn’t happen.

I was thinking to meet him personally at appropriare time, unfortunately didn’t materialised.

Rest in Peace dear Benna master, personally couldn’t make it because of lockdown restrictions.

I miss you so much.

Sir, being your student you have taken all our mischief very positivity and guided us to this day. Thank you for your guidance and support.

Still remember my child hood days, were you used to pull dance floor. we cherish the memories.

You are a great cricketer, remember the match played teachers Vs Students and single handedly you have won for the teachers. My every visit we used to discus cricket/Jokes which I will be missing dearly.

You are a role model for many of us. With your guidance many students reached different levels at different part of this world.

May your soul rest in eternal peace.
