Norfolk Assembly Dad Spotlight: Boyd Wilson

My report about Grandpa Boyd Wilson taught me more about the amazing man we see at every event supporting us.  We talked about how being a Mason has changed his life.  He said that it has made him a better man and lets him learn about the meaning of life.  

I asked him about his interests outside of Masonry.  I found out that he likes to golf and go fishing all the time.  He likes to be outdoors instead of inside all day.  Also, I asked why he wanted to join Masonry.  Grandpa Boyd said that he had the chance in 1954 to become a Mason, but he didn’t.  However, he talked to some of the other Masons and asked them some questions about it.  Those Masons weren’t able to answer his questions, but in 1955, he joined and was able to get answers to his questions.  After that, I asked if he had learned any important lessons through Masonry.  Grandpa Boyd said that he has learned to be a better man, to do good deeds, and help out with charities.  I asked why Masonry is important to him.  His response was that it is the organization and teachings that he loves.  He also said that it has changed his life as a man and that he is better than ever.

The next question I asked was to tell me about his favorite life memory.  Grandpa Boyd said that it was growing up with loving and caring parents and marrying his wife. They have been together for 54 years.  I asked what he did for a living before he retired.  He said that he worked as a painter before he retired.  The last question I asked was what advice he would give to a young man about Masonry.  His response was that it is one of the greatest organizations that any man could join and that they should consider joining because it will help them to understand how to be a better man throughout life.  

These are the interesting things that I found out about Grandpa Boyd and I hope that it will help you to see him in a different perspective.

With Rainbow Love and Service,
