Remembering Lynn Allen Patrick

It is with a heavy heart we announce that Lynn Patrick, former Council member of RECA, passed away in September. Lynn was a public member of Council, and RECA’s very first public member Chair (2005). He served on a number of government boards and was involved with several charities. During his term as Chair he made strides to clarify the intent and purpose of the Assurance Fund. RECA and industry professionals who worked with him will remember him for his amazing ability to look at things objectively, logically, and in a very calm manner. He was committed to the security of the public and effective, principled self-regulation. We offer our deepest condolences to his loved ones.
