Brother James N. “Jim” Beil, 32º, KCCH, laid down his working tools of this life on May 3, 2021. Our brother provided a pure example of how one of the revered Arts and Sciences of Masonry could change an ordinary region into a ornate pageant befit for a large cathedral when he sat behind the organ at Boughton Memorial Hall. Quiet, friendly, and always with a smile, our brother gave us a gift that still echos in our hallowed halls. Bro. Beil’s obituary can be seen in The Leavenworth Times, but the full accounting of just his Scottish Rite Masonry would fill a volume. His Scottish Rite journey covered more than 50 years. Farewell, my brother. The hall is silent now.
