Brothers. It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Brother Joe Madenjian, a long-time member of our lodge. After losing his beloved wife, Ann, in 2009, Joe moved out of the area to be near his sons. He was sorely missed by his Hancock brothers who regarded Joe and the nicest guy you’d ever want to meet. Prior to his departure, Joe was ever present at our meetings, especially our Sojourner meetings where he brought a dose of humor that was perfectly dispensed and served as a remedy to what ever ailed you.
The Masonic Funeral will be 1000 hours at the Belden-Larkin Funeral Home, 707 South 6th Street, Leavenworth. Please bring your apron, if you have one, and plan to arrive by 0945 hours for line-up. Visitation begins at 0900 hours. The church funeral service is scheduled for 1100 hours at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 209 North 7th Street. Burial will be at Leavenworth National Cemetery with military honors. The family suggests contributions in lieu of flowers. A memorial contribution to the Kansas Masonic Foundation in Joe’s name would be a fitting tribute.
