In Honour Of Alan
Park Road North in Chester le Street was today lined with local Freemasons forming a “guard of honour”, paying their last respects to Alan Hall, a true gentleman and a dedicated freemason who passed to the Grand Lodge above on the 16th June 2020.
Alan served our Province and many other Masonic orders with distinction over many years, and was Provincial Grand Secretary / Provincial Scribe Ezra from 1986-2007. He also held the Provincial Grand Master’s Certificate of Service to Freemasonry.
His passing will leave an indelible print on all our hearts, a true gentleman who lived respected and died regretted and will be missed by all who were honoured to have called him a friend and Brother.
Our thoughts at this time are with his good lady Dorothy and family.
