Bro. Gordon William Beeforth was Initiated into Old Tower Lodge No.49, but unknown to everyone, including Brother Gordon, he was already in the very early stages of dementia which was later discovered to be a very aggressive form known as Lewy body dementia, also known as dementia with Lewy bodies which proved to be very aggressive.
Sadly, our newly made Brother only ever attended his Initiation, was soon unable to drive and was forced to resign only a matter of weeks after his Initiation. Deteriorating fast, he quickly found himself in residential care in Guadarmar as his wife could not cope with the situation, where he died on the 17th of January 2018. His Masonic career may have been short, but the passing of Brother Gordon was recognised within Lodge with a minute’s silence.
