* Vale Dick Garner
The Rotary Club of Hampton mourns the passing of Richard (Dick) Garner, our friend, Past President, Past District Governor and multiple Paul Harris Fellow, in Tauranga, New Zealand on 11 September 2019.
Richard was a man for all seasons and was always striving to identify and action projects for the benefit of those who had less. He epitomised the Rotary motto of ‘Service Above Self’.
Richard joined Hampton Rotary on 3rd December 1997 and was a member until 24th October 2017. He served as Club president on two occasions in 2002/2003 and then again in 2012/2013.
He served as District Governor of District 9810 in 2007/2008 and served his beloved Rotary in many important roles including Rotary Public Image Coordinator for the Zone for many years. He was a recipient of multiple Rotary Awards in recognition of many years of dedication to its community service activities.
He was a great friend and an inspiration to us all. We send our love and prayers to Sue and family.
