Passing of brother Knight John Mangels

Brothers, it is with deep sadness that we learn of the passing of Brother Knight John Mangels, age 88.

His services will be this Tuesday 12/12/17 at the Lakewood Funeral Home on Rt. 9 South in Howell from 2 to 4 pm and from 6 to 8 pm. I plan to arrive by 7 pm and would ask for some of the officers and any others willing to attend to join me to offer condolences to the family. They did not wish our prayer service but we should certainly pay our respects with a good showing.

Thank you and God Bless

GK Dave Idank
