October 2021 Necrology Report

And he laid his carcase in his own grave; and they mourned over him, saying,
Alas, my brother!

1 Kings 13:30

As we move into the time of year traditionally associated with remembering those who have passed away, let us read the names of the brethren we have lost so far this year.

This Necrology Report consists of the deaths of brethren in the fraternity that have been reported to the Grand Lodge over the past ten months. If you know of a brother in your lodge that is not on this list, ask your Lodge Secretary to make the report to the Grand Lodge via the Grandview system. 


Please remember these departed brethren
and their families during your time of prayer:

A Glimpse Into The Past: A Look Inside
"The Old Grand Lodge Building"
on St. Chas. in New Orleans

Above are interior photos from the construction of the Louisiana Grand Lodge building on St. Charles Ave. in New Orleans.
These photos were taken between 1924-1926, and photographer by Charles L. Franck.

They originally belonged to Brother Carlos H. Richous, of Cervantes No. 5, in New Orleans. Brother Richous passed away in 1957, and the original photos were inherited by his daughter Consuelo Richoux. His son-in-law, Bro. Jacob V. Taffaro Sr (1922-2018), of Metairie Lodge No. 444, donated copies to the Louisiana Masonic Library & Museum circa 2012.

The Grand Lodge moved its headquarters to Alexandria in the 1990s. Today this building houses The Hilton Hotel.
