W Bro. Terry Goss

Terry was a good friend, a good mason and a loving family man. He was adored by his grandchildren one of whom, James, he initiated into Venture Adventure Lodge. This was Terry’s lodge in London. Many years before this he also initiated his son into the same lodge. Terry also saw his son exalted into the Royal Arch. Over the ensuing years he was proud to see his son installed as Worshipful Master and as 3rd, 2nd and 1st Principal in his Royal Arch Chapter.

Terry joined the RAF, and for 8 years he was a navigator. When he left the RAF he joined the Civil Aviation Authority as an Air Traffic Controller. His final position was as an Air Traffic Controller at Gatwick Airport.

He and his wife, Pat, retired to Spain to live in the village of Benidoleig. He was the first freemason I met in Spain and we became good friends. He proposed me as a joining member of Arenal Lodge and Sinceridad Chapter.

Terry was a dedicated and committed freemason. He was held in high regard and his counsel was always wise and thoughtful. He was a past master of Arenal and Oliva la Safor craft lodges and a PZ of Sinceridad Royal Arch Chapter. He was an active Provincial Grand Lodge officer, holding the rank of Provincial Grand Senior Warden. He also held grand rank in the Supreme Grand Chapter of Spain.

He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
