John V. Gronek - Obituary
With great sorrow, we must report that our Brother John V. Gronek, member of Cuyahoga Falls Moose Lodge 918, who was called to the House of God at Mooseheart for his conferral as a Pilgrim just weeks ago on June 4th, has been summoned from our defending circle, and has passed from this life on June 26, 2016. Since 1979, John truly lived and breathed the principles and ideals of the Loyal Order of Moose in everything he did. No matter what situation he was confronted with, John had this amazing ability to see the positive side of that situation. John would be in the hospital on a Friday not feeling well. All the while he would be trying to figure out how he could get back on the golf course on Monday. And low and behold, he would be on the first tee. Along with a sense of humor, John possessed the talent to command a room full of people with his voice whether spoken or sung. He would do anything for anyone. He made people smile. Our prayers go out to Dianne and all of his family and friends. Thank you John for so many memories we are proud to own. You will live forever in our hearts. It was an honor to have you in our fraternity.

The Loyal Order of Moose
