Terence Michael Hanby became the first member of Thoresby Lodge No. 4920, Pudsey, to achieve 50 years in Freemasonry, and Anthony W Llewellyn APGM was pleased to attend and present a Jubilee Certificate on this memorable occasion.
Unfortunately, Terry passed away 11 April 2016; a sad loss to the lodge and the Province.
Terry began his working life as an apprentice Draughtsman, starting his own company in 1972. Married to Joan, a loving wife for 60 years, with 3 children, 4 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
Terry was initiated into Thoresby Lodge on 3rd November 1966, when the Lodge met at the rooms based in Great George Street, Leeds.
He was actively involved in finding a new home at the Masonic Hall, Pudsey, and is proud to have been involved in getting the Lodge established there.
Serving all the offices in the Lodge, he attained the Chair of King Solomon in 1981. In 1990 he was appointed to Provincial Grand Superintendent of Works and later promoted to PPJGW. In January 2000, he was further promoted to PPSGW.
A Director of the Pudsey Masonic Hall Company for many years, and later took on Chairman of PMH Property Company Ltd on its creation.
He was a hard working Liaison Officer for 2 Lodges for 14 years. Terry is considered to have been a stalwart of Masonry in our Lodge, Pudsey Family of Lodges, and the Province.
He will be sadly missed by us all.
