Sadly we learned this week of the death on Tuesday, 5th September 2017, of Right Worshipful Brother Brian Emmett, Past Grand Junior Warden, and Royal Ark Mariner Grand Rank.
He will be sorely missed by all who knew, and worked with, him in the past but particularly by Avril and family to whom we all extend our heartfelt condolences. R. W. Bro. Brian was a colossus and has done far too much for Freemasonry in general and the Mark Degree in particular, to do justice to in this short note. Suffice to say he was our Deputy Provincial Grand Master from 02/09/1999 to 08/07/2002 and Grand Junior Warden in 2005, during which office he also served on the Grand Masters Royal Ark Council.
His pride and joy however was the Cleeves and Whitehead Trust to which he directed most of his efforts in the past 20 years. This will be covered, together with his Masonic career, in a tribute which will appear in the ‘Mark Well’ news letter to be issued in October.
