“There is no better way to experience love and compassion than by helping those in need, a call we answer every day.” This quote helps illustrate a core principle of the Knights of Columbus- Charity.
Frank Lohmiller was a member who believed in this principle. He was devoted to the Easton Knights of Columbus Council no. 238 where he worked for many years as a bar manager. According to friend and fellow member, Steve “Jiggs” Nolan, Frank was generous and kind, "The kind of guy who would do anything for anyone." He was loved by his brothers, their families, and the many friends he helped throughout his life.
Those who knew him well understood that Frank didn't have an easy life. He, like so many, had struggles, but he received his greatest satisfaction from being with and helping out others. He was also passionate about riding his motorcycle.
This winter he passed away while in Florida. It was sudden and unexpected.
His sister has decided to bring his ashes north. On Friday, June 8th, she will meet with friends, family, and community at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Easton, where all will enjoy a celebration of Frank's life. Then on Sunday, June 10th she and a group will ride up to Laconia to spread Frank’s ashes.
Steve Nolan and fellow member, Bill Hazeldine, decided it would be great to include all Knights of Columbus members, as well as the public, in this celebration of life.
This is going to be a fun night featuring “Counterfeit Cash” a Johnny Cash Tribute band, food, music, dancing and of course some great raffles.
In the spirit of charity, all money raised will go to local programs working to understand, prevent and treat addiction, including No First Time, The North Cottage, and The Soupman.
