Old Tymers Night

May 03, 2011

At the annual Old Tymer's Night, Shuniah Lodge honoured Wor. Bro. Maurice (Ozzie) Hrycyk.

W. Bro. Maurice Hrycyk was born in Fort William in 1937 and was educated at Ogden St. School and Selkirk Vocational Institute.  He had many vocations, starting with the Canadian Pacific Railway, he then attended Police College and became a constable in Fort William, next he hired on to the Liquor Board as an Inspector, he then transferred to the Fire Marshall's department where he worked until his retirement.

 

"Ozzie" as he is known to us, was initiated in to Shuniah Lodge in November of 1961, sponsored by Wor. Bro. John Williams.  He entered the chairs much later on and served as Master in the year 2000.  Maurice is active in the other Masonic interests, having been Master of all three Scottish Rite bodies. He is now the Deputy for Ontario for Scottish Rite.
