Please be informed of the passing away of one of the pillars of Freemasonry in Masonic District R11-B (Davao del Norte, Davao Oriental and COMVAL Provinces), VWBro Melchor S. Perdido, PDDGM.
The brethren of Shangri-la Lodge No.196 extend our sincerest condolences to the bereaved family. His late wife and daughters are active members of the Rainbow/Amaranth. His only son is a member of the Order of DeMolay. Truly a masonic family.

Let us pray for the eternal repose of the soul of so good a man as our brother Mel Perdido who just dropped his working tools of life.
His passing away is a great loss to Masonry especially for Masonic District R11B where he was one of the pillars and whose wisdom has shaped the district to where it is now, alive and full of promising Masons.
God has given to us that portion of duration called time and though we are full of sadness and mourning, let us celebrate the eternal life of Brother Mel Perdido in the company of the Great Architect of the Universe.
