Reginald Rule

Published November 1, 1998

Reginald Rule, 82, passed away on Oct. 4 in Toronto after a lengthy illness.

Mr. Rule worked as the building superintendent at the national church office since the 1980s. He retired last June. He had also worked as verger at nearby St. Paul’s, Bloor Street.

Known around the building as Reg, he was described by many as a man of integrity who had a zest for life and a passion for baseball, particularly the Blue Jays.

Asked in an interview a few years ago how he kept such a youthful appearance and outlook, he replied, “Keep working, keep your mind active, and be lucky enough to have a wonderful, supportive, loving wife and family.”

He is also the only national church office staffer who lived in the building he maintained for so many years.

He and his wife Marjorie lived in an apartment on the second floor where the Anglican Journal offices are now located.

Mrs. Rule said the couple spent some of their happiest years there and sometimes held parties in the Church House boardroom.

Mr. Rule is survived by his wife, two sons, Barry and Jim.

His funeral was held at St. Paul’s on Oct. 7.
