    Edirimanne was married to Sumana Liyanage Wehihena, a nurse. He met her at Colombo Eye Hospital when Edirimanne had a bad sickness and Sumana came to eye hospital to take a nurse exam as a student nurse. He had to wait 21 days in the hospital until healed where he started a close relationship with the nurse. When Edirimanne recovered, he went to the hospital and met Sumana and told her that he wanted to get married. However, the nursing law states that any nurse who goes to nursing is not allowed to marry for six years. After 7 years and Sumana became the head staff nurse at the Colombo Eye Hospital, they got married on March 31, 1966. Sumana was a past pupil of Navathagala Central College, Elpitiya.

    After a brief illness, he walked with the help of clutches for a while. Edirimanne died on 27 November 2000 at the age of 76.

    Career
    He first acted in radio dramas written by Sirisena Wimalaweera titled Guwan Viduli Rangamadala. He voiced in radio plays, Kurulu Bedda, Landesi Doopatha, Vajira, Monarathenna, Yakage Wanguwa, Aes Deka, Sugandhika, Gajamuthu and Sandagalathenna. Then he was selected for the stage drama Handahana produced by T.B. Ilangaratne. Then he had the opportunity to act as an "elderly Mudliyar" in the 1953 Manthri Hamuduruwo wrote by Ilangaratne.

    Edirimanne missed the opportunity to act in the film Radala Piliruwa due to inability to take leave from the public service of the Ports Commission. Then he was selected to play as a "Catholic father" in the film Duppathage Duka. During this time, he acted in the short film Wessanthara. In 1954, he acted in the stage drama Kulu Harak produced by P. Welikala as well as some other plays such as Kalagola and Sivamma Dhanapala. In the meantime he emerges as a drama producer with the stage drama Handapana. He started cinema career with the main role as "Sarath" in the 1957 film Suraya. The fans fell in love with the character of this movie until he acted in a vicious behavior as the owner of the club, "Vicky" in the film Nalangana which made the audience disgusted.

    It is noteworthy that at a very young age, he got the role of an old man or an elderly father because he played old roles in radio dramas. All these old roles came after Edirimanne played the role of "Dingiri Appu" in the 1963 movie Udarata Menike. He acted in several commercially successful films including Adata Vediya Heta Hondai, Laa Dalu, Maha Ra Hamuwu Sthriya, Seegiri kashyapa, Athma Pooja, Pipena Kumudu, Singapore Charlie and Lokuma Hinawa.
