“What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly”
Richard Bach.

Graham Lindsay Paterson lived his life by his own terms and principles, often demonstrating to those around him something to aspire to.

He was not a sheep by any means, but he was also not a wolf. He was a true eccentric who held no malice for anyone.

Graham was a man of compassion and caring, with a great intellect and a sense of justice.

He was a man of science, fact and understanding.


All of this was only exceeded by his love for animals which was always reciprocated.

Graham spent more than half of his working life in remote or 3rd world countries giving him a unique perspective on the world. He focused not on material goods but rather on people and making the best of what you have available.

Graham was an artist, a writer, a husband, a father and a grandfather.

He led an extremely full life that impacted many around him.

His working life and other details can be found in the book ‘Who is Who in the World’.

“Here is a test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: If you´re alive it isn’t.”
Richard Bach.

Graham’s mission on Earth has now been completed.

His presence in our lives will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.

With love and admiration – Always
