In Memoriam – V.W.Bro Frank Shelley PGMO & W.Bro.David Ellis

Posted by admin under Final Goodbye
Whilst we all meet on the level in Freemasonry, there are some amongst us who surely “live respected and die regretted”. I am sorry to have to let you know that V.W.Brother Frank ShelleyP.G.M.O. died peacefully at home on Saturday morning, 22 October 2016. He was 84 years old and had been a Mark Master Mason for the last 48 years. We will hear plenty about Frank in our lodges over the weeks and months to come, and I know many of us will recall special times we shared with him. Some of Frank’s closer friends are in touch with his wife, Pam, and will be supporting her through this time. The funeral will be at 12 noon on 9th November, at Lodge Hill Crematorium, Weoley Park Road, Selly Oak, Birmingham B29 5AA and afterwards at Harborne Golf Club, 40 Tennal Road, Harborne, Birmingham B32 2JE – all welcome. Family flowers only, but donatins in Franks memory may be made to St Mary’s Hospice.
 
I have also heard that the funeral for W.Bro. David Ellis will be held this Friday, 28th October, at 1.15pm at St Giles Church, Church Street, Whittington, Lichfield WS14 9JX. Barbara and the family would welcome as many friends to attend as posisble, and afterwards at The Old School House, Church Hill, Weeford, Lichfield WS14 0PU.
 
We will indeed remember them both, and offer our love and support to their wives.
 
Sincere, fraternal regards
