Passing of Lynn Coffman, wife of RW Chris Coffman

    Brethren,

    It is with great sadness that I report that Lynn Coffman, wife of our Deputy Grand Master RW Chris Coffman, passed away yesterday as a result of injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident. Several of his grandchildren are in the hospital, but are not believed to have life threatening injuries. This is a very difficult time for Chris and his family, and he has asked the Brethren to please respect his privacy. At this time, all inquiries should come through the Grand Lodge office.  We have no information regarding any services. Once we receive any further information, we will provide an update.  Please keep Chris and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

    Fraternally,

    Clinton M. Brown, Jr.

    Passing of MW Brother Charles McQuery, P.G.M.

    2007 Charles W McQuery

     

    Brethren,

    It is with a heavy heart that I must report that the roll of the workman has been called, and one Master Mason has not answered to his name. MW Charles W. McQuery, Past Grand Master of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Washington passed to that house not made with hands on Saturday, September 28, 2019. He has laid down the working tools of the Craft and traveled to that undiscovered country from whose bourne no traveler returns. MW Brother Charles served as Grand Master from 2006-2007. He was a member of Ashler Lodge, No. 121, University Lodge, No. 141 and Grand Mound Historical Lodge, No. 3. MW Bro. Chuck was raised in Mary’s River Lodge, No. 221 in Oregon on March 22, 1966. He and his lady Diane recently sold their home in Bothell, WA and moved permanently to Surprise, AZ. At this time, we have no information regarding a memorial service. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

    Fraternally,

    Clinton M. Brown, Jr.

    Grand Secretary
