Brother Iain C McDonald P.M. of Lodge Stepps 1213
3RD OF June 1939 ---1st of June 2018
Brother Iain was initiated into freemasonry on the 26th of September 1957 and was the Master in 1975 a very dedicated brother to freemasonry and a Past Senior Warden in The Provincial Grand Lodge of Glasgow which he was third member of the Lodge to achieve the highest elected office of P.G. following his Uncle Brother Tom Smith and his good friend Brother Ian Richardson.
Iain was a very experience piper and travelled all over the world as a judge of both piping and highland dancing.
Installations at the Lodge when he was piping was a delight and the harmony after had the brethren tapping their feet
A brother who was Treasurer of the lodge for 10 years and who enjoyed freemason sadly ill health took its toll and he was not able to attend the Lodge or the Provincial Grand Lodge over the last five years
The service was at St David’s Memorial Park Church Kirkintilloch on Tuesday the 12th of June 2018
A brother who will be missed by all who knew him our thoughts and prayers are with Mary and the family at this sad time farewell to the dancing piper from Tiree
From the lone shieling of the misty island
Mountains divide us and the waste of the seas
Yet still the blood is strong the heart is highland
And we in dreams behold the Hebrides
