Grand Commander of Nevada General Order No. 6

To all Commanderies within the Jurisdiction of the Grand Commandery of Knights Templar of Nevada

It is with great sorrow that I inform you of the passing of one of our own Fraters, Sir Knight Arthur L. Simpson, Past Grand Commander of the Grand Commandery of Knights Templar, Nevada.

SK Art was born 4/1/2031in Franklin, PA, and died 5/20/2022 in Gardnerville, NV. He served as Grand Commander in 1997 – 1998. He now walks beside our Lord and Savior, and I ask that you keep him and his family in your prayers.

It is my order that each Constituent Commandery within this jurisdiction at their first Stated Conclave after receipt of this letter, that the Altar be draped and remain draped for a period of 30 days and a moment of silence be observed in honor and memory of SK Jerry Buck Evans. The attached memorial should be read at the ceremony.

Given under my hand and the seal of the Grand Commandery, Knights Templar of Nevada, this 4th day of September, A.D. 2022, A.

Fraternally, Attest:

S.K. Thomas (Thom) A. Collins Grand Recorder
