W. Bro. John Relf was initiated into Hastings Lodge No. 2692 in Hastings, U.K. on 22 January 1991and became a joining member of Old Tower Lodge No. 49 on 17 February 2000. He was an enthusiastic mason and a member of RA Chapter, Mark and Knights Templar. Although having eyesight problems, he was quick to point out if things were not done ‘properly’. He loved his social life and enjoyed what he called a small libation ! He was a loyal friend who would help anyone in difficulty and was keen to ensure that the right message was communicated to any enquiries made in respect of masonry. He is sorely missed by the brethren and friends who knew him. Bro. John passed away after a sudden illness. His donation of the Three Lodge thrones will be a lasting testiment to his committment to the temple at Sociedad Compás.
