It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the passing to the Grand Lodge Above of Worshipful Brother and Companion Cyril Raymond French, better known as Ray, aged 87, who passed away on Saturday 30th May after a long illness.
Initiated in 1971, Ray was previously a member of Fulham Lodge No 2512, Old Lutonians No 7408 and Bedfordshire Schools Chapter No 5974. He joined Elstow Lodge No 8759 in 2010 and was installed as Master in 2015, after which he served as Treasurer until ill health forced him to stand down.
He is survived by his wife Margaret to whom I will as be sending a card of condolence on behalf of the PGM/MEGS, Executive and Brethren and Companions of the Province.
Tony Green, Pr G Almoner
