Cyril died on October 22nd some seven weeks short of his 100th birthday. An engineer, he was initiated in Rockingham Lodge in 1979 and became WM in 1989. A keen member of the Chapter he was MEZ in 1993, renowned as a brilliant ritualist with a deep understanding.
He seemed to be ageless, delivering long pieces in both Craft and Chapter well into his nineties. Only failing health stopped him attending in 2018.
Swinton masonry, in particular, and the Craft in general have lost a true stalwart who will be long remembered.
