Freemasons New Zealand acknowledges the passing (4 April, 2018) of Daniel Mearns Holmes (Dan), QSO. He was in his 87th year.

MW Bro Holmes had a most distinguished Masonic career. He was initiatied in Ikaroa Lodge in the Taranaki District in 1954, passed and raised in 1955 – also in Ikaroa Lodge.

He enjoyed a number of Grand Lodge ranks in the 70’s and 80’s culminating in his appointment to Grand Master in 1994. He was awarded a 60 year bar to his 50 year jewel in 2014.
