Bro Barry Armstrong

It is with great sadness that I must report to you the Passing to the Grand Lodge Above of Brother Barry Armstrong, born 31st March 1932 (90 years).

Bro Barry peacefully passed to Grand Lodge above on Saturday 24th December 2022.

He was initiated on the 14th October 1968 into Century Lodge L284, Grand Lodge of Ireland, then joined Deamination Lodge L3336, Manchester in 1972.

He joined Someries Lodge in 1975 and held the office of Steward for 23 years before retiring from that office. Bro Barry celebrated 50 years in Masonry January 2020 which sadly was the last meeting he attended.

Bro Barry was very proud of his freemasonry and particularly Someries lodge and took great pleasure and value of the companionship of the brethren. He was a well-respected member of the lodge.

I have sent a card of condolence on behalf of the Provincial Grand Master and Brethren of the Province to Barry’s wife, Ann, and family.

Requiescet in pace 

Yours sincerely and fraternally

Mike Fitz-Gerald – Provincial Grand Almoner
