Mr. K.B Asante devoted his full service to mother Ghana over 70 years, from the classroom as a mathematics teacher to Ghana’s Cabinet and to the world of diplomacy.

The Honorable Lodge possibly to provide further proof to the statement by former President John Agyekum Kufuor, an acclaimed Freemason- that there was nothing “secret” about Freemasonry except a shared passion to help, the Freemasons allowed cameras to capture them freely as they paid their last respect to the late statesman.

Members of the Mason family who were captured by cameras at the ceremony as part of the funeral include Prof V.R.A.C. Crabbe, Aggrey-Orleans among others.

In appearance were some members in their masonry wear who ground past the coffin and surrounded it for their rituals as the Masonic funeral rite is in motion.

More research revealed that a Masonic Funeral rite is a rite provided to all Master Masons in good standing within their respective lodge.

It is a ceremony whereby a Master Mason may have the Masonic funeral rites performed by his lodge for the pleasure of those who have known him and his works.

We further learned that a Masonic funeral is done at the request of a Master Mason himself before his death or his family and the service may be held in a chapel, home, church, synagogue or Lodge room with committal at the graveside.
