My deepest sympathies go out to Johns family and personal friends. As a lodge brother, John was a kind, generous and passionate Freemason. As council and adviser, John was invaluable and indispensable to me in my Masonic journey to becoming Worshipful Master of Norristown Lodge, always willing to help with his encyclopedic knowledge of Masonic ritual and law. His contributions and service to the fraternity, and to his brothers, will be sorely missed. His absence will be profound.

But now, John has laid down the working tools of the Craft, and with them he has left that mortal part for which he no longer has use. His labors here below have taught him to divest his heart and conscience of the vices and superfluities of life, thereby fitting his mind as a living stone for that spiritual building -- that house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. Strengthened in his labors here by faith in God, and confident of expectation of immortality, he has sought admission to the Celestial Lodge above.
We shall meet again. Farewell, my brother.
