Angel Picart Obituary, Death – I extend my greetings to the Brothers that make up the Eureka Lodge. I, PM Robert H. Salters, have been given the responsibility of serving as the Lodge Secretary in the name of our Worshipful Master, Brian I. Pickering. In the name of the Lodge, I carry out these responsibilities. I’m sorry to be the one to tell you this, but regrettably, one of our beloved Brothers passed away just recently. I’m sorry to be the one to break the news to you.
This is something I have to say with a heavy heart. Brother Angel R. Picart Jr., who had died away earlier in the week, was honored at a wake on Friday night in Hoboken, New Jersey. His funeral had taken place earlier in the week. The awful news that her husband had passed away was delivered to me by his widow today in the form of a phone call. In this trying time, I would ask that you remember his wife, son, and daughter in your prayers.
Please keep this request in mind. Remember to keep them in your thoughts at all times. I would appreciate it very much if you could thank me in advance for your generosity. When new information regarding the decisive preparations undertaken for Brother Picart becomes known, it will be reported to the membership of the organization, and appropriate changes will be made in response to the new knowledge.
I would want to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to each and every one of you, My Brothers, for the unwavering support that you give to our time-old fraternal organization. I am honored to call each and every one of you my brothers.
