Two weeks ago, the Canadian Priory of the VOSJ lost a dedicated member. Larry Bosiak was an Alberta native that volunteered with the St John Ambulance for more than 35 years. Bosiak was made a commander of the Venerable Order. In a very sad turn of events, Mr Bosiak was murdered in an apparent botched robbery attempt outside of his home. Mr Bosiak was clearly a confrère that attempted to live out the Order's two mottoes. Pro Fide (for the faith) and Pro Utilitate Hominum (in the service of humanity). He will be missed in Canada and in the Order at large.
