Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd. said Tuesday its vice president and chief financial officer, David Bonham, died suddenly this past weekend.

Fairfax has named John Varnell, vice president, corporate development, as interim CFO.

 A spokesman could not immediately be reached as to Mr. Bonham’s age and cause of death.
