Past President Dr Rexed Birger of the Rotary Club of Royal Hua Hin was born in Sweden on the 23rd January 1945 and passed away peacefully on the 13th May 2020 in Hua Hin, Thailand. He was 75 years of age and recently endured period of ill health. Dr Birger leaves behind his lovely wife Karina and his five caring children, as well as countless friends around the world.
By profession Dr Birger was a medical doctor starting as a general practitioner then moved on specialising in obstetrics and gynecology, also serving in the Swedish Royal Navy as a Lieutenant Commander and Medical Officer.  Over the years he broadened his perspective into medical consultancy and occupational health which lead to him to a broader spectrum, including work with companies to improve both the health of the organisation as well as the well-being of its employees. Dr Birger was quoted as saying ‘It’s about bigger solutions to achieve sustainable outcomes’. 
After settling down in Thailand in 2008 he established the company MediCall which employs some 40 Swedish nurses based here in Hua Hin, providing out of hours medical appointment service to people residing in Sweden.
Dr Birger was an active member of the Caux Round Table before becoming a Rotarian on the 1st April 1988 and served in many organisations around the world in various capacities including President, Secretary and Sergeant-At-Arms.
Following his move to Hua Hin Dr Birger became a frequent visitor to the RCRHH Hin shortly after receiving club charter in 2010. He was inducted into the RCRHH on Friday 30th September 2011 by then President Brian Giles at our club meeting near the Hua Hin beach. Since then he was an active Rotarian and Board Member in the RCRHH serving as Secretary, Membership Chairperson and then as President in July 2017.
After his tenure as President Dr Birger continued to serve on the Education committee while directing the Membership committee even during the time of his illness. He exhibited professional excellence in everything he set out to do and was a true role model for all of the lives he touched. Dr Birger will be deeply missed by all of us but the fond memories of him will remain in our hearts and minds forever.
Rest in Peace, Rotarian Dr Birger Rexed.
