Worshipful Brother John William Harvey was a much respected and valued member of this Province and the Grand Lodge of Spain who passed the the Grand Lodge above on the 19th of May 2019.
As well as being a Past Master of the Old Tower Lodge No.49 John was a member of the Provincial Grand Stewards Lodge No.154 and he was very active in his support of the Province and Grand Lodge events where he could always be called upon to support the sound system as well as ceremonial duties.
John enjoyed a highly successful career in the support and maintenance of military aircraft spending a number of years in the Middle East where he was highly noted for his ability to train and develop younger Engineers.
Following he and his wife Carol settling in Spain, John became a member of Old Tower No.49 in July 2007 and was active in his support of the Lodge through a number of Offices and eventually being Installed into the Chair of King Solomon in 2015. John was also very active in the Holy Royal Arch and a number of Progressive Orders. Becoming a Provincial Grand Steward in 2012 John was very active in his support of Provincial activities, skills that were also enjoyed by the Grand Lodge of Spain for all of their functions. An active Charity Steward in the Lodge, John also supported the charitable activities of the Province and held the Rank of Assistant Prov. G. Charity Steward.
The passing of John is felt not only by his Lodge but by Spanish Freemasonry in general and our dearest sympathies are with his wife Carol and sons Carl and Jon.
