PM Bro. Rick Taman has gone to the Eternal East

Brethren, it is with a heavy heart to inform you that after a few years of great sickness and distress, Hesperia Lodge No. 411 AF & AM‘s Past Master Bro. Richard Taman, has dropped his working tools and has gone to the Eternal East on July 30th, 2021.

Bro. Rick was an active member of a number of other Lodges and had joined other Masonic groups. Being a Certified Lodge Instructor, for many years he dedicated his talents to our Craft and was always ready to assist Lodges across the 5th NE District and Brothers in need to assure that the work got done.

Bro. Rick is also the author of our Lodge Anthem which was last performed by the Grand Organist of the Grand Lodge of Illinois during Hesperia’s 150th Anniversary and Lodge re-Dedication ceremony in 2014.

Arrangements for a Masonic Funeral and Memorial Service are in the making and details will be given at a later time.

May the earth be light upon you Bro. Rick!
