- Please pray for brother knight as he undergoes surgery dec 2nd for a tumor between his skull and brain. Unknown at this time if its cancerous.
- Please pray for the repose of KIETH STANGLER brother Knight of Council 3657 of Forest Lake who passed away on March 9th from cancer.
Keith lived a faithful fulfilling life. His battle with cancer was evident and his strength and courage was an inspiration, as his love for Agatha and his faith in the Lord Jesus carried him in his daily prayer life.
Keith’s many talents, giving heart and his joking nature kept you smiling and laughing. His cooking and baking made you hungry for more and his handyman carpenter talents mirrored his faith in Jesus. He enjoyed making many things but his true passion laid within religious art. Most recently was his gift of making rosaries while he prayed on each one he had touched.
