For me, Freemasonry was a part of my life growing up. My Stepfather, Ch. Supt. Norman Jones Deceased was a 65 year Mason. I was alway curious about the Fraternity and the meetings he would frequent so one day I asked him. As it turned out I also had a friend of the family who had moved to BC who was a Mason. It just made sense to join.
My connection with Freemasonry started in my youth when I joined the Organization of DeMolay. At every meeting a Master Mason was in attendance, and thus a strong bond was formed with my Chapter Dad and others. I admired and respected the Mason’s that I dealt with during my youth, and it was only natural that I take the next step. Freemasonry is a way of life, and has been in my life for over 50 years, a decision that I never have, nor ever will regret.
