Brethren, our Brother Gene Middleton has joined the Grand Lodge in Heaven. Bro. Gene was known for his devotion to duty and volunteer work at the VA Hospital in Leavenworth. He will be missed by those who knew him most and shared in his enthusiasm and love of life. He always maintained a strong and cheerful spirit regardless of his many stays and visits to the Hospital during his illnesses.
Bro. Gene’s funeral service will be held at the Davis Funeral Chapel, 531 Shawnee St., Leavenworth, KS 66048 at 7 pm, Friday, January 2, 2015. A Masonic service by Hancock Lodge #311 is planned during the service.
A private cemetery service will be held for family members only at a later date at Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery where Gene’s wife was buried. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Gene’s name to the Alzheimer’s Association (www.alz.org) or to the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (www.pdf.org). A donation can be left at, or mailed to, the Davis Funeral Chapel for distribution as you request.
More information will be disseminated as it becomes available and will be posted on the Hancock Lodge # 311’s website.
The minister of the Lansing United Methodist Church will be assisting with the service.
Gene’s full obituary should be available on the Davis Funeral Chapel website (http://www.davisfuneralchapelinc.com).
Please keep his family in your prayers.
