The roll of the workmen has been called, and one Master Mason, Brother LeRoy Darrel Parker, 32°, has not answered to his name. He has laid down the working tools of life and with them has left that mortal part for which he no longer has use. His labors here below have taught him to divest his heart and conscience of the vices and superfluity of life, thereby fitting his mind as a living stone for that spiritual building, that house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. Strengthened in his labors here by faith in God, and confident of expectation of immortality, he has been granted admission to the Celestial Lodge above. His Brethren mourn the passing of a great man and Mason.
Brother Darrel Parker was born on August 8, 1942 in Redding California and passed to the Celestial Lodge on Wednesday November 25, 2021 at 79 years of age. He was a member of Medford Masonic Lodge #103 at the time of his passing. Brother Parker received his 32° on April 1, 2004 at the Medford Valley Scottish Rite and was a Charter Member of the Medford Chapter of the Knights of Saint Andrew. He remained an active member until his passing.
The Masonic Memorial Service for Brother Darrell, is presently being planned. No information is available at this time.
