Town clock honours Rotarians’ memory

Twelve-foot timepiece dedicated to former Langley City mayor Reg Easingwood and his wife, Kay, a tireless volunteer

A new post clock honouring two of the City of Langley’s most respected Rotarians was officially unveiled last week.

The Rotary Easingwood Clock, located at the corner of 204 Street and Fraser Highway, was crafted by Vahid Yazdanmehr from It’s About Time in memory of Reginald (Reg) and Kathleen (Kay) Easingwood.

Reg, who passed away in 2009, had been a member of Rotary since 1966. He was mayor of the City of Langley from 1983 to 1988 and was awarded the Freedom of the City in 1995.

His wife, Kay, was also a member of Rotary and a longtime volunteer with Meals on Wheels and many other organizations. She passed away in 2014.

The clock was funded by the Rotary Club of Langley, with contributions from the City.

“This is so special for myself, for our family, and I know my mom helped so much in the City, I saw how much she did.

“I’m really excited about it,” said Kay’s daughter, Marion Brand, who was in attendance at the clock’s unveiling ceremony with her daughter, Jessica.

Brand said the location of the clock is “very touching” as she recently opened her own business a couple blocks away.

“This means even more to me now,” she said.

The clock is made of cast aluminum, stands 12 feet tall, plays different chimes and melodies and has a 24-inch dial and the Rotary symbol on all four faces.

“Both Reg and Kay are resting and are at peace knowing well that the state of the City of Langley is strong — as is its foundation,” said Navnit Shah of the Rotary Club of Langley.

“Mayor Easingwood will always be remembered for his love of the City of Langley. In fact, they both (Reg and Kay) showed tremendous love for the citizens of Langley by participating and expending their time and effort in many non-profit organizations.”
