Father Vernon Huguley, Council 10567 Chaplain and St. Patrick Pastor, celebrated the Mass and called on the participants to share their memories about those great men who are no longer with us. After Holy Eucharist, a candle was lit and a bell rung for each of the 16 deceased Knights.

Widows of deceased Knights in attendance were Thomasine Wathen, Lois Bradley, Josephine Melton, Pauline Vines and Elizabeth Duchock.

Council 10567 Grand Knight Ronnie Muro said, "The Knights of Columbus was originally formed to give aid and support to its members and families, especially when experiencing the loss of a loved one. In that spirit, we must always honor the memories of those beloved Knights who have left us. What better way to honor them than by celebrating Mass in their memory and with their families."
