Passing of Brother James Seawell


It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that Brother James Seawell, having completed all the design’s laid down on the Trestleboard of Life, has answered the summons of the Grand Warden of Heaven and Earth and has entered into the Grand Lodge over which the Supreme Grand Master of the Universe presides. Brother Seawell was 92 years old.

Brother Seawell was a member of Anacostia Lodge #21 here in Washington, DC for 64 years. By request of is family, the Brethren of Anacostia Lodge will convene a Lodge of Sorrow. I would like to ask that ALL brethren in DC participate if within the length of their cable tow.

Services for Brother Seawell will be held at:

OWINGS, MD 20736

The Masonic Service is scheduled for 6:30 pm on Monday January 26, 2015. Please plan on being at the funeral home no later than 6:00 pm so we can prepare and open the Lodge of Sorrow. Attire will be dark suit, white shirt, dark tie, black shoes, and white gloves.

I ask that the Grand Architect bestow a soft and safe earthly bed for our Brother. May our Heavenly Father protect him and enfold him in his arms with love.
