About 3 months ago, Brother Charles had a fall. He then had a further fall and was taken to the hospital, where unfortunately he caught MRSA. He was eventually discharged to his home address where he received palliative care until his passing yesterday, Tuesday 7th September 2021.

Charles’s wife passed some 15 years ago. He is survived by his daughter Michelle, to whom I will send a card of condolence on behalf of the Provincial Grand Master and the Brethren of the Province.

Yours sincerely and fraternally,

Tony Green, Provincial Grand Almoner
