Today, PSD Mike Moeykens submitted his resignation, effective immediately, as a Conferring Officer (CO) in the 3rd Degree Exemplification. He is suffering from some health issues. He feels it is for the good of the Order that he steps down from this role. He plans to continue to be an active Knight and support the team with coaching the current and future Co’s with their lines.
Brother Mike served in the Arizona jurisdiction for 22 years as a CO. He successfully conducted 111 - 3rd Degree Exemplifications during these 22 years. Prior to moving to Arizona, Mike served as the State Deputy of the great state of Vermont. Mike has been a true friend to me, to the state, and to the Order. He has offered me great advice and counsel throughout my years as a State Officer. I am proud and fortunate to know such a great man.
I spoke with Mike this afternoon. He is in good spirits and promises he will be active and we will see him often at various Knights of Columbus events.
I plan to make Mike the class honoree at the March 14, 2015 - 2nd and 3rd Degree Exemplification, in Vail, AZ. If his health allows, he will be attending this degree. All are welcome to say hello to Mike after the degree concludes that day.
Mike needs our prayers and best wishes.
