At the young age of just 98 years old, our Brother celebrated 75 years (actually over 76) of service to the Craft recently. Most Worshipful Brother Jefferson H. Jordan, Jr., PGM 2015, presented the award with Right Worshipful Brother David Cordova, Worshipful Master of Bent Lodge No. 42, Right Worshipful Brother Don Carlson, DDGM for District 2 and Right Worshipful Brother Tony Christophersen, Grand Secretary at a ceremony held at the Lodge on May 20, 2024.

Worshipful Brother Carl was Initiated an Entered Apprentice on July 21, 1947, Passed to the Degree of Fellow Craft on November 17, 1947, and Raised to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason on December 22, 1947. He served Bent Lodge No. 42 as Worshipful Master in 1965 and 1977.

He was joined by his family for the event and gave Bent Lodge an opportunity to celebrate their Senior Past Master, as well as their senior living member. Serving as a Freemason as long as most hope to live, our Brother is a great example of dedication to the Craft.
