From the Officers and members of the Valley of Columbus 32nd Degree Scottish Rite Masons, we offer our sincere condolences. Jim was a member of our Valley for seventy-one years, served as the Thrice Potent Master of the Enoch Lodge of Perfection as well as Chairman of the Valley Board of Trustees from 1976 to 1979. He was coroneted a 33rd Degree Mason in September, 1973 in Detroit, Michigan and served our Valley well. The passing of our Brother from the cares and troubles of this transitory existence has removed another link in our fraternal chain that binds us together. May we who survive him be more strongly bound in the ties of friendship, morality and brotherly love. May God have him in his holy keeping.
