(Past Master 1960)
It is with sadness that we record the death of Cyril Crooks, Past Master and Member of Royal York L.O.L. 145 and the Loyal Orange Institution of Ireland. Son of Jimmy Crooks (also a past member), he was a pleasant, amicable and friendly man, a testament to his conduct as a Sales Manager in career and a football referee for the Irish Football Association. His conduct in, and commitment to , our institution was never for personal gain but for the benefit of others, and was consistent with his actions in the wider community in which he lived and worked. We will mourn his passing, but nowhere will that loss be more greatly felt than with his immediate family and family circle and to them we extend our heart felt sympathy.
Worship Master, Officers and Brethren of Royal York L.O.L. 145.
