“I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
— Etienne de Grellet

Reg was a man for others – a much loved and always remembered father, partner, brother, uncle, colleague and friend. He was dedicated to serving others. He recognized and respected each person for who they were. He saw our gifts and our strengths. He believed in the power within each one of us to make an active and positive contribution within our sphere of influence – no matter how big or how small – toward a more peaceful and just society. Reg dedicated his life to the service of others, championed many causes, and had a profound impact on the lives of so many around the world. He belonged to all of us – he was Our Reg.

We invite you to celebrate his life with us, and to share your memories, stories and reflections with us.
