Meet The Worshipful Master - 2018


    Worshipful Brother James Tocker


    Bro. James Tocker recently retired form the Ministry of Transportation after 36 years where he held the position of Divisional Safety Coordinator for the province of Ontario. Born in Thunder Bay (Port Arthur) and then immediately moving to Esterhazy Saskatchewan, where he spent his early years living in this small community as his father worked at one of the Potash Mines in the area. He returned to Thunder Bay at the age of five and has been here ever since.

    Prior to his retirement, he was a long time active unionist with the Ontario Public Service Employees Union dating back to 1986. During that time, he served 12 years on the Board of Directors; the last 6 of those as the Regional Vice-President for Northwestern Ontario.

    James & Sophia live out of town on a lake where they love spending time. The peace and serenity never gets tiring. They could not be prouder of their daughters Krista and Loren. Krista is nearing her final year in nursing at Lakehead University here in Thunder Bay while Loren embraces the lifestyle of Toronto as an Accounts Coordinator for Trish McEvoy Cosmetics.

    Having an interest in the Craft, he became a Mason back in 2000. He has always found the history and traditions of Masonry captivating. He also enjoys visiting other lodges when he is able.

    Outside of the Craft, James has numerous interests, some of which include spending time with his family and friends, travelling, scuba diving, videography and photography (both above and below the waves), model trains, carpentry and a variety of outdoor activities.

    He currently sits as the Vice President with the Thunder Bay Rail Historical Society and is also getting involved in the restoration of Thunder Bay’s newest tourist attraction the Alexander Henry.

    Fraternally Yours
    James Tocker, WM
