Brother Brent Thompson Masonic Service Wednesday in Texas

From online today:

The Masonic Funeral Service for Officer and Brother Brent Thompson will be held this Wednesday, July 13th, in Corsicana, Texas at 4pm. As most of you are aware, Brother Brent Thompson was of one of the officers killed in the Dallas shootings last week. He was a member of Corsicana Lodge No. 174. Brother Thompson is survived by his wife and 6 children, one of which is a member of the Black Gold Demolay Chapter in Corsicana.
The Grand Master, M:.W:. Wendell P. Miller, will conduct the Masonic Funeral Service for our fallen Brother.
The Masonic Funeral Services will be held at:
Northside Baptist Church
2800 N. Beaton St
Corsicana, TX 75110
Time: 4pm
Please bring your own plain white apron to the Masonic Service, as they are expected to run out of aprons. Please remember that only plain white aprons are authorized for Masonic Funeral Services. Masons (who are able to come early) will meet at Corsicana Lodge No. 174 beginning at 2pm and then proceed to the church together.
Corsicana Lodge No 174 is located at:
201 N. 15th St
Corsicana, TX 75110
Time: 2pm

A GoFundMe account has been set up by the DART police department to support our deceased Brother Officer Brent Thompson's new wife and family. If you wish to donate, the link is here.


  1. I've been keeping a eye out for service details for RW Clarence Castile's nephew. Have you (or anyone) heard anything?

    1. No, I haven't heard anything so far. I'll post if I find out.

      (Although the family may just want to keep it a private service because of the undoubted circus-like atmosphere it could potentially become from the media manipulators, I'm afraid. It might also be delayed if there is an officially conducted autopsy.)
