Raised to the Lodge on High – Carl Weill

Our beloved DWA Brother, Carl Weil, was raised to the Lodge on High, on May 24 2016 at approximately 2pm.   He passed away unexpectedly at a cardiac rehabilitation center, while recovering from recent open heart surgery.

Carl was an esteemed member of not just FultonFriendship Lodge #102, but also other local Masonic organizations.

He was initiated as an Entered Apprentice on 13 November 1957, passed to Fellow Craft on 11 December 1957, and raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason on 15 January 1958.

Carl was very active in Freemasonry, and always exemplified its highest ideals.  His kindness, simplicity, and humor were appreciated by all.

He served as Tyler at Fulton Friendship Lodge #102 for nine consecutive years.  A special plague with his name was installed a few years ago, to show our appreciation for his service, which hangs outside the lodge door, with his picture.

Additionally, he was the Lodge historian for several years. and could recall everyone who had been a member, and a great deal of detail about them.  In many ways, he kept the memory of so many departed brethren alive.

It is in this spirit of honoring his legacy, and to honor his wish, there will be a Masonic funeral being held at Pascack Reformed Church, 65 Pascack Road, Park Ridge on Friday, June 3, 2016, at 4pm.  He will be interred at the Church’s cemetery, for which cared for, for many years, and for which Fulton Friendship Lodge #102 supported restoration efforts.

Fulton Friendship Lodge #102 will host a memorial gathering at our Lodge directly following the Church services,  to celebrate the life of a great man and Mason.
