Tribute to Vinay Varsani who sadly passed away last night

Vinay Varsani sadly passed away last night at the age of 32 after losing his fight with adenocarcinoma cancer.

In 18 years of running SOS, this has never happened and I desperately hope it never happens again. It’s a massive blow to the company and such shock to us all, especially the ferocious speed in which he was taken, but at least this means his pain was as short as possible. As a company we have to pull together to help us all get over this tragedy.

I interviewed Vinay in April 2010 and was immediately struck by his positive energy and his incredibly likeable nature. At the office he was always a pleasure to work with. He had such a warm nature and was very sociable and friendly. His work ethic was second to none, always going the extra mile.

Even when he was so ill, he sent us messages, retaining his superb sense of humour and demonstrating how much he enjoyed working with us. Vinay will be sorely missed by us all and we send our deepest condolences to his friends and family.

May he rest in peace.
