Passing of Bro. Les Starbuck & Evelyn

May 12, 2019

It is with deep regret that I need to inform you of the passing of Brother Lester Martin Starbuck on April 23rd, 2019 at the age of 95 years, 7 months and 12 days and his loving wife Evelyn Jacobs Starbuck of 72 years who followed Les on May 3rd, 2019.

 Brother Les was Raised to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason on May 29, 1947 in Laverne Valley Lodge No 453 in Laverne, Oilahoma and was a member in good standing for the past 72 years.  He joined Temecula Catalina Island Lodge in September of 1989.

 Brother Les had been a very active Mason in recent years and could be depended upon to assist where ever he was needed serving as Chaplain of our Lodge for 13 years.  He was always working around the Lodge and could be counted on to assist with cleaning up the outdoor Lodge room when needed.  Brother Les received the Golden Anniversary Award in 1997 for 50 years as a member of the craft.  In 1997 he was also bestowed with the Hiram Award for his years of dedicated service to his Lodge.

 Brother Les served in the U.S. Navy as a Radar Technician during World War II and later worked for the Federal Aviation Agency for 26 years as an Aerospace Engineer/Flight Test Engineer.  Brother Les and Evelyn were both active members of Grace Presbyterian Church in Temecula.

 Brother Les was a kind man and never had a negative thing to say about anyone.  He will be sorely missed.

 Sincerely and Fraternally,

 Brother Tom Hafeli                                                                                                  Secretary

Corona Senior DeMolays Travels to raise a Brother

As a Past Chapter Dad and a Senior DeMoly myself, one of the reasons I joined the Masonic Lodge was I wanted to be like them, they were not only advisors, pillars of the community but also very successful in there labors and with their families.

So when I became Chapter Dad, it was very important to me that my boys got the same introduction I had when I was their age. We played the lodge every year in a softball game we had activities where they got to know the members of my lodge on many different levels.

I have helped raise many Senior DeMolays in my 46 years as a mason, but the one that will aways be special to me, will be the one I had the pleasure of taking part in last month.

One day I got a call from Brian Kelly one of my PMCs and he said Dad I am getting my third degree February 22 here in Commerce City CO, at Park Hill Lodge. I hope you will attend. Well, at that point I said Brain I wouldnt miss it for the world.

I got off the phone called the Master of their lodge and was granted permission for myself and a couple other Senior DeMolays to take part in the second section. So with that Robert Burger PMC and a PM served as Master in the East, I was in the West and Will Votaw PMC and a PM of Boise Lodge #1 played third base.  We practiced the night before and everything flowed great between 2 different Jurisdictions.

When a Chapter Dad raises his own, with his own boys the feelings are tearful. My father who was also very involved in our youth groups once told me,Son in 20 years look at the kids you advised, it will be at that point you will know just how good and affected you were. All of my boys turned out great.  That evening after the degree all 3 of them told me this was one of the best things we ever did, they then asked me who will be the next one Jeff or Kevin. My response was dont forget the others brothers in the Chapter.

Since this being the 100 year anniversary of DeMolay, my son and I our working on a reunion of of our Chapters, El Rancho Chapter from Pico Rivera CA and Whittier and Corona Chapters the first weekend of June and celebrating it together at the June 2ndGrand Lodge event in Long Beach.
