I personally had the privilege to work closely with Maurice - African Famine OEOA 1984-86; Earth Summit 1991-92; CGIAR Review 1997-1998. Maurice's legacy for a better world is eternal. We can change course and get there but we need to move from agendas to actions. He truly was a man of action in all he undertook..... Sadly missed Mahendra Shah, Bali, 4th Dec 2015

You made a real difference in the world, for the betterment of all. Your light will shine bright for eternity Maurice. Blessings for you and blessings for your family at this difficult time.

We owe Maurice Strong our heartfelt thanks and gratitude for caring and for sharing his environmental expertise with our nation, our world. His humane acts are in God memory; and one day soon, he will see the earth and its environment in perfect balance sustaining itself according to God's original purpose. It has been promised! Our loving condolences to his loved ones left behind!

I grew up knowing Fred and well remember going to his Dad's new office in Mtl in his rusty station wagon, stopping along the way for him to get a suit fitted (in his boxer shorts).So I have early memories of a great man in the making! My condolences to Fred and the rest of the family.
