Rev Max Griffiths MBE - Gentle Remembrance

It is a fitting tribute to our club member, the late Rev Max Griffiths on his passing on 13th September 2021, that we quote from his own book on death, divorce, disease and other life challenges, "How to Say Goodbye"; first published in 2003. 

"Life has led Max Griffiths into a wide range of experiences, from labouring in an engineering factory, to confronting the devastation of Darwin caused by Cyclone Tracy, to tackling the problems of people living in isolation of outback Australia.  A graduate of Melbourne University in Commerce, Arts and Divinity, he was a minister in the Presbyterian and Uniting Churches for almost 40 years, for eleven of them as superintendent of the Australian Inland Mission. In 1978 he was awarded the MBE for services to the outback...”

“At many times in our lives we have to say goodbye to people, to places, to phases we pass through.  Often this is a painful experience, sometimes seemingly impossible.  At other times we say goodbye with relief.

“Both in his personal and professional life Max Griffiths has been confronted with death, divorce, job loss, parting with children, and similar crises.  In How to Say Goodbye Griffiths tells how he and people he knows have managed to say goodbye and yet retain the legacy of a gentle remembrance."

Ever gracious, Max had omitted from his book that even throughout his many challenges he had continued serving the community in many humanitarian capacities. He was councillor of Ormond College, Morongo College, Geelong College and Rossbourne House, and on the board of the Austin Hospital as well as being chairman of the Austin Hospital Human Ethics and Medical Research Committee. He also sat on the boards of the Royal Melbourne, Royal Children’s and Freemasons Hospitals Ethics Committees. Max was also advisor to the Commonwealth Gene Technology Regulator, and Chairman of Norwon Association.  

In Papua New Guinea, Max and his wife Merrilyn, pioneered a mobile health and educational unit for 20 villages. They supported five girls financially to attend universities, put four girls through secondary education and sixty children from a village located on a rubbish tip through primary school.

Rotarian Max has left a lasting gentle remembrance of all he was and has done in living a life devoted to his calling and purpose.  

He was truly a Rotarian who exemplified our Rotary mottos of Service Above Self and in Doing Good in the World wherever his faith led him.

Goodbye Max. We will ever gently remember.
