    Derek Michael Hall (Ex of Shalden Mark 988)

    For the first 16 years of my Masonic existence, Derek Hall was omnipresent, he was one of the first people I met in Masonry, even from the moment I was brought into light, then when I joined the Mark and when I joined The Royal Ark Mariners, Derek was in attendance. And then suddenly he wasn’t there anymore. Yet in those first 15 years of my Masonic existence, he taught me so much and I’m grateful to him.
    For an Englishman, I was surprised to hear that he had been initiated into the craft in Ireland. Indeed, many of us will remember him taking part in a demonstration of an Irish Lodge Opening Ceremony at a meeting when my lodge had no ritual waiting to be done. I remember thinking; it was surprisingly different from what we experienced.
    Derek was a soldier, a military policeman and for a while, it seems he was stationed in Northern Ireland. Military service was his other great passion; he liked to regale us with stories of his time in the army, which he could always recall in great, great detail.
    Additionally to Craft Masonry, Derek was involved in very many orders, these are the ones that I knew about: The Royal Arch, The Mark, The Royal Ark Mariners, The Knights Templar and Rose Croix. There were probably more, but I am not aware of them. He was Advanced into Shalden Mark 988 in November 1986 and became Worshipful Master in 1992 and achieved senior Provincial rank. He was passionately fond of the Mark, but I believe his favourite order however was the Knights Templar. Even after Derek resigned from many of his Lodges in 2012, he maintained his links with the William Stuart Preceptory 76A where he was made an honorary member just a few months ago.
    From time to time over the past few years I would bump into Derek in Alton town centre, and I noticed his increasingly heavy reliance upon his walking sticks, but was shocked to learn that when he passed to the Grand Lodge Above this week, he was nearly 94 years old. He will never be forgotten.

    It is with sadness that I record the passing of W. Bro. Roger Legg, PGStwd, to the Grand lodge above, yesterday. He was a member of New Forest Mark Lodge, N0. 611 and Eling Manor Lodge. It has been said of him that he made a significant contribution to all Lodges that he belonged to, always willing to help out. His wife, Jenny has said, "He was a good man and loved his masonry. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family. Roger lived respected and died regretted. Rest in Peace my Worthy Brother.

    It is with sadness that I report the passing to the Grand Lodge Above of Bro Ainsley Newton a long time member of Medina Mark and Royal Ark Mariner Lodges early this morning following a battle with prostate cancer. He will be sorely missed by those who were fortunate to know him.

    Roy was a very active Mason, being admitted into Caer Gwent No 5071 in the early 70's and Economy Chapter a few years later, being Master of his craft Lodge in 1983 and 'Z' in 2002 he was granted Provincial honours in 1991 and 2006.
    Roy's love however was his Mark. Where he belonged to 3 Mark Lodges and 5 RAM. He was advanced into Winchester Mark 969 and elevated into Loveland RAM, being Master in 1991 and Commander in 1999 achieving PGStdB in 2009, and in 2011 he achieved his RAMGR.
    For many years he was either Secretary/Scribe, Treasurer and Charity Steward in all of his many Lodges. In Mark he joined Meridies Hants & I of W IMM's and Meridies, Hants & I of W I Cdr's, Wyndham and across the Border he was a Founder of the Stuart Parry Lodge of Installed Commanders in Wiltshire.
    He also supported the Progressive and Select Orders.
    He joined Silchester Council No 226 in the Cryptic Order of R & S Masters in 2005.
    Then joining Anna Valley Council as their first Candidate in 2006. He was Treasurer and Charity Steward for many years and then promoted to Assistant District Grand Secretary from 2014 to 16. He was, incidentally, down to be balloted for as a joining Member of Wey Valley Council.

    Roy is survived by his loving wife 'Sandy', son Graham and daughter Elizabeth to whom we all offer our condolences on the loss of a very highly thought of Brother,

    It is with very much sadness that I report the death of W. Bro. Roy Ford, who passed to the Grand Lodge above on 2nd September, 2020. Roy had not enjoyed good health for sometime but kept a cheerful front. He was a most willing member of a number of Mark and RAM Lodges, achieving the Rank of PGStd B and RAMGR. As a treasurer in different Lodges he was excellent. He will be very much missed, especially by myself

    It is with sadness that I have to inform you of the passing of Sue Jennings, the wife of W.Bro. Donald V Jennings, who passed away on Sunday 30 August 2020 after a long illness. Sue fought courageously against her illness for many years and continued to support Don during his term of Provincial Grand Senior Warden.
    Our thoughts and Prayers are with Don and his Family during this sad time.

    W.Bro David Thomas PGJO sadly passed away on 26th May 2020. David's funeral took place on 16th June but unfortunately due to circumstances with the Covid-19 lockdown only close family could attend the funeral.

    W.Bro David was a member of Gosport Lodge of Mark Master Mason No 305 and will be greatly missed not only by the Brethren of No 305 but right across our Province and beyond.

    On Saturday 22nd August 2020 R.W. Bro. Alan Brunning, Past PGM of Berkshire and a member of Mercury Mark passed to the Grand Lodge above after a long illness. I concur with R.W. Bro. Richard Oliver’s comment “ A great PGM and a lovely man who lived respected and died regretted. Alan was a tremendous support to our Province in Nigel Buckingham times. He was a Member of Oakley Lodge of MMM.

    W, Bro. Terrance Desmond Stone, passed to the Grand Lodge Above on 14th August, 2020, six weeks after the death of his wife.
    He was Advanced to the Degree of Mark Master Mason in William Hickman Lodge, No. 320, 0n 30th October, 2007, and Elevated to the Degree of Royal Ark Mariner on 12th February, 2008. He progressed to the chair in both Degrees and assumed the duties of Secretary of William Hickman Lodge in 2013, an office he still held at the time of his passing. W. Bro. Terry was promoted to PPGJD in Mark. Terry was a very keen Freemason, a loving family man and a good friend to all his many contacts. Brian Wisbey states, "He lived respected and died regretted." He will be sorely missed by all those who knew him. My thanks to Adrian Cleighton-Hills for some information.

    It is with sadness that I report the passing to the Grand Lodge Above of W. Bro. Ronald Parvin on 23rd May, 2020. Ron was a long serving member of both Harmony Mark Lodge and Harmony RAM Lodge until he resigned due to ill health. The Lodge made him an Honorary Member.
