Solemn Strikes the Funeral Chime...
Brethren, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of two (2) Brothers of Amity Lodge. Br. Jerry Jenkins, who has long battled with Alzheimer's, died on July 2, 2017. Br Jenkins was a retired lawyer and a life-long Mason
More recently, Br. Nathan Birch passed away in his home on July 10, 2017 at the very young age of 33. Br. Birch was a somewhat newly-raised Master Mason who received his 3rd Degree in September of 2015. He worked as a mechanic and was also very good with computers and technology.
They will both be dearly missed.
