VW Bro Richard F Thornton

The attention of the Brethren is drawn to the passing of VW Bro Dick Thornton on Sunday the 5th of May.

Dick was a much loved and deeply respected member of several Lodges and other Orders during his 35 years of service to Freemasonry.

Tea Tree Gully Lodge No 218

where he was initiated in 1979,

serving as Master 5 times.

Also a member of:-

Elizabeth Lodge No 200

Salisbury Lodge No 126

Fraternity Lodge No 214

Holdfast Lodge No 30

Elizabeth Daytime Lodge No 228

He rose to the rank of District Grand Superintendent in the Craft, he was a Past member of Payneham Craft Lodge No 87, of Marden Lodge No 240, a Past member of Payneham Mark Lodge No 23, where he rose to be Master and then Grand Steward and a Past First Principal of St Peters RAC No13.

His knowledge of the ritual knew no bounds and his presentation was a joy to listen to,

(In spite of his London accent).

He was a rock on which many good ceremonies were based.

He has indeed lived respected and died regretted.
