Our heartfelt condolences are shared with our extended Rotary families.  We come together to share our grief and toast our friends that we miss dearly.


Jeff Marple

In May Jeff would have celebrated his 51st year in our Rotary Club.  Over the past 51 years Jeff’s generosity and impact on our Rotary Club and community is immeasurable. 

Rev. Gordon Allen

Reverend Allen was a proud member of the Portsmouth Rotary Club for 39 years, where he was highly respected and where, at the Thursday luncheon meetings, he gave sometimes whimsical, sometimes deeply thoughtful, and always inspiring invocations.  A quintessential gentleman and scholar, Reverend Allen often spoke to foreign Rotary guests in Gaelic, Arabic or Hebrew.  Honored twice over as a Paul Harris Fellow, Rotary’s highest honor, Reverend Allen was known for his distinct golden voice, his quick wit, warm smile and friendly tip of his hat.

Carl Brage

Carl was a longtime member of our club joining March 28, 1985, and serving as Secretary for many years.  Last year Carl was named an Honorary Member of the Portsmouth Rotary Club.  Carl was particularly proud of his perfect attendance for the entire time in the Club, a 30-year streak that was eclipsed only recently by illness.
