Gordon Charles Macleod (Dad) was a Paul Harris Rotarian who was very committed to Rotary’s 4-Way Test, which included “building goodwill and better friendships” with all of his fellow human beings.
He was a down-to-earth, no-nonsense person who expressed kindness, humility, modesty and consideration towards all other folk regardless of their ethnic, cultural, religious or political beliefs and every day of his life, during his 81 years, he demonstrated this in countless and innumerable practical ways . It was this quality that made him the exceptional human being and man that he was and why he was admired by so many and was once described by Leonard McLeod as “A Prince Amongst Men”.
Like every one of us human beings he was not “100% perfect” but he was far less flawed than most of us. He shall always remain a fine role model and his legacy should be, for every one of us who knew, loved and respected him, to emulate him and to try and measure up to his example in our daily lives.
