RSA pays tribute to Sir Paul Reeves

RSA pays tribute to Sir Paul Reeves

The Royal New Zealand Returned and Services' Association is greatly saddened by the death of Sir Paul Reeves.

"Sir Paul devoted his life to service - church, country and community, including the international community," says National President Don McIver.

"Above all else, he served humanity."

"His empathy, inclusiveness and compassion for his fellow human being that was the hallmark of his tenure as Governor-General is the legacy of this great New Zealander."

"These same qualities were recognised on the international stage with his appointment as Anglican Observer at the United Nations and significant roles in Fiji, Ghana, Guyana and South Africa, including chair of the Nelson Mandela Trust."

"The RSA extends our deepest sympathies to Lady Reeves and her family."
