Passing Of Illustrious Brother James Wesley Aday, 33°


The roll of the workmen has been called, and one Master Mason, Illustrious Brother James Wesley Aday, 33°, 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.

Illustrious Brother James (Jim) Aday was born on March 25, 1933 in Denver Colorado and passed to the Celestial Lodge on Tuesday July 20, 2021 at 88 years of age. He was a life member of the Medford Valley Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, and a Past Potentate in 2006 of the Hillah Shrine in Medford Oregon.  Jim was also Past Master of Laurel Lodge #13, A.F. & A.M. in Roseburg, Oregon.  Brother Aday received his 33° Honours in October of 1995.  He demitted in 2009 due to failing health issues.

He passed away peacefully at home, with his loving wife Minnie.  Funeral plans are in work; most likely being held in September at their Roseburg Church.  No date or time was announced at this time.
