Eddy Arnold honored at the 206th Scottish Rite of Freemasonry Reunion

Something many of you may not know, but Eddy Arnold initiated his Masonic career in January of 1944 at Lodge 560 in East Nashville and later that year he entered the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. In 1983, he achieved his 32nd degree and then his 33rd degree in 1997. Eddy was extremely proud of these achievements and his long term membership. In fact, his tombstone bears his 33rd degree symbol. At each Memorial Reunion, a deceased 33rd degree member is honored, and today, I had the privilege to briefly address the 206th reunion class named in his honor. I also was able to view his ceremonial White Cap that they have in a display of honor. Many thanks to the fine people at the Grand Lodge in Nashville for their kindness today. He would have been very proud of this recognition.

    Eddy was and always will be the greatest enter\tainer. I met him many at different shows. I also went to Tennessee and went to see him in his Brfenywood office and presented him with a poem about him incorporating all his songs. I have pictures of him reading it and many of myself with him. He was the perfect gentleman. There will never be another Eddy Arnold. I watch this site every night before retiring. May he rest in peace. I will never forget him. Joan Conway
