Date 19/02/2022

Dear Brethren,

I have the sad duty to inform you all that today at 11.30am, W.Bro Derick Wait PGStandB, PPJGW has passed to the Grand Lodge above. W.Bro. Wait was initiated into Javea Lodge No.40 on March 27th 1991. His Long Masonic career saw him receiving the honour of Past Grand Standard Bearer and Past Provincial Junior Grand Warden . His knowledge of the ritual was second to none, with many younger Brethren looking up to him for guidance and support.

W. Bro. Wait will be missed within Javea Lodge no.40 as a friend as well as a Brother, with our thoughts now going to his wife Pat and his Son Daniel.

May his final journey to the Grand Lodge above, be full of peace and tranquillity, where his living memory will last for ever.

W.Bro Matthew James ProvAGSec
Secretary Javea Lodge No.40
