Frank Reynolds 1941-2012

It is with great sadness that on Tuesday 6 March we all attended the funeral of our friend, fellow Rotarian and Paul Harris Fellowship Award holder, Frank Reynolds. He is survived by his widow Joan, son Colin, daughter Denise and his three grandchildren Madeline, Sullivan and Abigale.

He was a well known business man in Waterlooville, running three shops, Waterlooville Sewing Centre and Polyanna Retail. He was President of our club during the Rotary Year 2005/2006. In 2011 he was awarded the Paul Harris Fellowship, the highest honour a Rotarian can receive, for the many years that he was a staunch member of the Rotary Club of Waterlooville and for the outstanding contributions that he made in the field of:

  • Fund Raising where he organised the Antique Fairs which ran for several years and raised a lot of money
  • Community Service where he started the “Make a Wish Project” involving The News and resulted in a lot of good publicity
  • International Service where he started the exchange visits with Waterloo Rotary Club of Iowa
  • Fellowship where he organised numerous memorable social events and Christmas parties.

With his original thoughts and determination Frank ‘made things happen’.  He was always surportive of others, always had a quick quip and was an inspiration to us all. He was a shining example of  “Service above Self”, the moto of  Rotary.The contribution he made to our club and Rotary is immeasurable.  

He will be sorely missed.
