Vale, Bro Simon Pervis Stedman MM,
7 Sept 1964 to 21 July 2018
Thanks to Arcadian-Veritas' members who attended Bro Simon's funeral and also to that Lodge for paying this respect to our JW Simon.
Lodge Arcadian-Verita No 340 VC
Lodge Arcadian-Veritas met at the Prahran Masonic Centre on Tuesday 14 August 2018. Just as Lodge Devotion has done at our meeting of Sat 11 August, Arcadian-Veritas had a short Eulogy for Bro Simon and observed a minutes silence for our departed Brother. I was not aware that Bro Simon, Devotion's JW, had attended Arcadian-Veritas' July meeting and stood in as JW for their meeting, acting in a Third Degree, this would have been the second last time Simon was among his Brothers in a Tyled Lodge.
The Earl of Dunmore Lodge No 1686 VC
Bro Simon was a foundation member of the above lodge, established on 19 May 2018, with 120 Brethren attending the Consecration and 220, including Simon, attending the banquet. On 11 August 2018, the same night as Devotion No 723's 723rd meeting and Installation, there was a eulogy and minute's silence observed in Simon's honour. Simon held the office of "Jeweler" in that Lodge. At our own Installation on the same night of 11 August, we also observed a minute's silence and reflection in Bro Simon's Honour.
Thanks to Earl of Dunmore member, none other than our current Grand Master, RWBro Keith Murray, who attended Bro Simon's funeral and also to that Lodge for paying this respect to our JW Simon.
