Passing of Brother Bill Smith
Brother William K. "Bill" Smith passed away suddenly last week. Bill was currently serving as our Washington State Aerie Secretary, a job which he faithfully preformed for over 20 years. Bill was also a Past State President, Past Pacific Northwest Regional President and a member of both the Washington and Grand Aerie Hall of Fame.
Our hearts were filled with sorrow and our souls were hardened upon hearing the news about Bill's passing. Bill was a mentor to many and was appreciated and admired by all who knew him.

Proud Home of John Noldan Grand Worthy Chaplain
John Noldan, Grand Worthy Chaplain of The Fraternal Order of Eagles, joined the organization in 1989 as a charter member of North Mason, Wash., #4226 and became the Aerie’s first Worthy President.
In the years following, Brother Noldan held several other offices on the local level and served seven years as Worthy Secretary. He held every office on the state level on his way to being named Washington State Worthy President for the 2005-06 fraternal year.
In 2010, he was honored as an inductee into the Washington State Aerie Hall of Fame. Three years later, the membership voted Brother Noldan Grand Inside Guard for the 2013-14 term during the International Convention in Reno, Nev.
Brother Noldan is retired from the Department of Defense after 41 years of service. He and his wife Kat have four children and nine grandchildren.
He continues to work with Local Aeries and the State Aerie in various capacities and enjoys cruising with his Eagles brothers and sisters.
