Gerald Kittleson 1934 – 2024
On Monday, 15th January 2024 when the sun was at its meridian, family and friends joined together at Denia Crematorium to celebrate the life of, and say goodbye to Gerry.
Bro. Gerry Kittleson was born on 5th July 1934. He was initiated into Freemasonry on 6th May 1980 and installed into the Chair of his English Lodge on New Year’s Eve 2005.
On retiring to Denia, Spain with his wife, Lynn, he joined Oliva LaSafor Lodge 112 in 2002 and was honoured with the rank of Provincial Organist. He played the organ enthusiastically until his eyesight and other health problems made that impossible, but still managed to attend lodge meetings until last year.
Married for 65 years, he is survived by his wife, Lynn and their son, Alan, who, with his wife, Sarah, attended the service.
The ceremony was conducted by W. Bro. Ken Cornforth, current Provincial Grand Organist, and music was provided by W. Bro. Gerald Hales, Past Provincial Grand Organist.
