Brother George has been a Faithful Knight, in the Knights of Columbus, for over 58 years and has served in many volunteer capacities as an Officer in various offices over the years as well as many volunteer efforts. We as a council would be remiss if we did not mentioning some of George's important contributions to the Church and our Catholic Faith Community. Some of the ones we most remember George serving at the NBK Bangor, Fr. Jake LaBoon Council # 13395 have been as a 4th Degree Sir Knight at many church services and other Brother Knight funeral services. Also assisting with dinners for homeless men at Benedict House, serving faithfully in the local Blood Bank at NBK Chapel and at various locations throughout Kitsap County and as a Eucharistic Minister and earlier as an Usher for the Catholic Community at the Navy Chapel. So on behalf of the Fr. Jake Laboon Council, and all of it's 75 members, we wish to remember George and Thank George for all his hard work and dedicated efforts to our council. Our Thoughts and Prayers are with you George. Estelle, Dog Leo, and all the Cook Family! May Brother Geroge rest in Eternal Peace with Our Dear Lord in heaven,,,,,,,,,,,
