Robert Ebdon 2019

Windsor Castle Chapter No.252

 

Ill\Bro. Robert Ebdon 32° - Died 23rd April 2019.


Our Brother Bob was called to Grand Lodge Above recently.


My early recollections of him are that he worked at the Met Office, where my late mother worked.


Bob was a clever guy both in the science world and the world of Freemasonry He was a very active member of the Royal Arch and he received the Grand Superintendents Meritorious Service Award a highly prized award that very few obtain. In Rose Croix he was Prelate at Windsor Castle Chapter for many years and ended as 32 Degree.

 

In private Bob loved his antiques and he managed to get two magnificent jewels for me …and one of which I passed on to Australia. He was the preceptor for Bullbrook Lodge at Berts Barn and I learnt so much from him.

In short, he lived respected and died regretted.

Brethren to order to pay tribute to departed merit.

The Unknown Shore - Elizabeth Clark Hardy
Sometime at Eve when the tide is low
I shall slip my moorings and sail away
With no response to a friendly hail
In the silent hush of the twilight pale
When the night stoops down to embrace the day
And the voices call in the water's flow
Sometime at Eve When the water is low
I shall slip my moorings and sail away.
Through purple shadows
That darkly trail o'er the ebbing tide
And the Unknown Sea,
And a ripple of waters' to tell the tale
Of a lonely voyager sailing away
To mystic isles
Where at anchor lay
The craft of those who had sailed before
O'er the Unknown Sea
To the Unknown Shore
A few who watched me sail away
Will miss my craft from the busy bay
Some friendly barques were anchored near
Some loving souls my heart held dear
In silent sorrow will drop a tear
But I shall have peacefully furled my sail
In mooring sheltered from the storm and gale
And greeted friends who had sailed before
O'er the Unknown Sea
To the Unknown Shore
