We of Brookline Rotary learned Monday of the passing of our devoted member Allen "Red" MacPherson. Red was a former Club President (and held many other offices) over many years. He will be remembered as an enthusiastic friend to all as well as a model Rotarian.  He owned Phillips TV & Stereo. At the personal level, Red embodied the Rotary motto of Service Above Self, as over the years he fixed things for us, sold us what we needed (and only what we needed), and was always good for an unplanned stop-in visit and chat. How he survived those minesweeper years - especially the nuclear tests - I'll never know. Perhaps God had better plans for him, and for the rest of us, by preserving the gift that was Red MacPherson. May he rest in peace and rise in glory. -- George Chapman, Brookline Rotary President
