Moose Community Mourns Sudden Passing of Paul Curtis

It is with deep sadness that we share news of the sudden passing of current Moose International Chairman of the Board, Paul Curtis.

A member of the Camas, WA Lodge #1042, Paul truly loved the Moose and served the fraternity in numerous ways. He was a member of the 175 Division of the Moose 25 Club and received the Fellowship Degree of Honor in 1991, the Pilgrim Degree of Merit in 1996 and the Moose Legion Elite Ring in 2018. Paul served on the Supreme Council/Board of Directors since 2013 and was instrumental in many of the major changes that the Fraternity has undergone in the past several years, including the transition to “One Moose.”  He was elected to his current office in July 2021 during the 133rd International Moose Convention in Cincinnati after having served as Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors, Supreme Jr. Governor, and Supreme Prelate.

He spent the last year traveling the country visiting different lodges and doing what he loved most – connecting with members who shared his passion for our missions.

“I can’t think of anyone who loved the Moose as much as Paul,” said Moose CEO Scott Hart.  “I was shocked and saddened when I heard the news of Paul’s passing.  He was such a positive and compelling person who gave all his time and efforts to make this Fraternity stronger.  I am comforted to know that he was doing what he enjoyed most, touching the lives of members across the nation who looked to his leadership for inspiration and direction, when he passed.  He will definitely be missed.”

Please keep his wife Bonnie, their children and grandchildren, and all his loved ones in your thoughts and prayers.

As more information becomes available, we will be sure to share.
