Everyone was very saddened to hear of the death of R.W.Bro. Stephen Davison, Assistant Grand Master on Tuesday, 19th April 2022, a month short of his 70th birthday. He had appeared to be in good health earlier in the day but passed away peacefully at home that night.
Advanced in Howe Lodge of MMM No 21 in Loughborough, R.W.Bro. Steve first came to the attention of us here in Warwickshire when he attended our Annual Provincial Meetings in the capacity of Provincial Grand Secretary of Leicestershire & Rutland. He held that office for 3 years before stepping down. Only a year later he was appointed Deputy Provincial Grand Master, and another year after that he was Installed as the Provincial Grand Master – a meteoric progression. He was, however, only to hold that office for 2 years before he was snapped up by the Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons and appointed as Assistant Grand Master in 2017.
A tall man, R.W.Bro. Steve was never aloof or considered himself superior, but was the epitome of a Mark Master Mason, meeting everyone on the level. Outwardly he was inevitably smiling, with a glint in his eye. He made sure everyone felt valued, and was so obviously enjoying Mark Masonry. As A.G.M., he visited Warwickshire on many occasions – meetings of Provincial Grand Lodge, four-provinces meetings, the Lodge of Instruction Festival and recently at Centenary and Sesquicentenary meetings.
Within Warwickshire, R.W.Bro. Steve was an Honorary Member of The Bedford Lodge of MMM No 115 and the Yenton and Central Keystone Lodges of MMM and RAM No 719.
Since becoming Assistant Grand Master, R.W.Bro. Steve often spoke of the “Magic of the Mark” and in his passing we have lost just a little of that magic.
“Among Mark Master Masons you will ever find friends, who will administer relief to your distress and comfort in your affliction…”.
Known as the “Happy Degree”, Mark Masonry has found great popularity for it’s ritual and fellowship. If you are interested in becoming a Mark Master Mason please contact W. Bro. Ian Belsham, the Provincial Grand Secretary. Click here.
