RW Harold Ascough
Durand Lodge mourns the loss of our beloved Past District Deputy Grand Master, Harold Ascough. RW Harold served as Worshipful Master of Durand in 1979 and his legacy will continue as he was a true brother and friend and will be sorely missed at Lodge - and in the Grand Jurisdiction of New Jersey.

"May you be raised by our Supreme Grand Master to the enjoyment of fadeless light and immortal life in that heavenly kingdom where faith and hope shall end, and love and joy prevail throughout eternity."
