Chief’s Message

Hej (Hello),

Summer is here! There will be plenty of fun things planned, Past Chief’s Chicken BBQ on the 4th of July, Herring Breakfast, and our Family Picnic on July 27th. Remember our wonderful picnic grove is available to all members to use and enjoy this summer. If you are interested in a pavilion - call Connie to see what’s available.

I would like to take a moment to reflect on our Grand Chief, John Pavlock, who passed away on May 16, 2014, John was also a Past Chief of our Lodge, a strong and compassionate man who loved his family and the Viking family. John will be missed by us all. “A beautiful life that came to an end, he died as he lived, everyone’s friend.”!

My brother Michael J. Smith Passed on May 31, 2014, and I would like to “Thank You” everyone for your cards, concern and sympathy.

Hope all Vikings have a safe and Happy Summer - Come up and enjoy our great club.

See you all soon!

Chief Mindy

Ode to John Pavlock

by Jim Chipman

Picture of John Pavlock

A loving family man and true
Would do just anything for you
A model Viking thru and thru
When I think of this, I think of him.

A caring, wise and thoughtful friend
Volunteering without end
A wizened leader, among men
When I think of this, I think of him.

As lodge Chief, He would form a view
His tenure, on Grand Council grew
Earning respect, from council crew
When I think of this, I think of him.

A man who answered duty’s call
Whose sense of humor’s. off the wall
Yellow star July Meeting Changes Once dressed up like a blow up doll
When I think of this, I think of him.

A performer, always in his life
Most times, accompanied by his wife
Sonny and Cher, they sounded like
When I think of this, I think of him.

Ran Viking Idol Night, one time
At a Convention, blew my mind
Had Ralph Beck, singing Patsy Cline
When I think of this, I think of him.

John"s family dressed as vikings

He managed Bingo, many nights
Each Tuesday, under ballroom lights
They Bingo’d, to their hearts delight
When I think of this, I think of him.

Each Haunted House, he made a room
With scary fog and acrid fume
Your entry there, caused fear to bloom
When I think of this, I think of him.

And then he earned, the Grand Chief post
And this proud lodge, would be the host
Our Viking leader, we would toast
When I think of this, I think of him.

John and friends doing the YMCA dance

Psychedelic shirt, and Afro wig
Was just another stunt he did
Sung Y M C A , with his kids
When I think of this, I think of him.

Sang “Hello Dolly”, just like Louie
Bit beer cans, that weren’t chewy
Some outside folks, might think he’s screwy
When I think of this, I think of him.

And sometimes, he would tip a beer
A bit of glögg, could bring him cheer
Through a straw, the jello, disappeared
When I think of this, I think of him.

John receiving the Grand Chief's Gavel

We saw the love in a father’s eyes
As he marched his daughters to be brides
I heard he even kinda liked their guys
When I think of this, I think of him.

You know, He always did his best
Never angry, or distressed
By Knowing him, we all were blessed
When I think of this, I think of him.

When our time comes, to leave this earth
We’ll be sure, we’ve earned, our measured worth
If our friends, and family, all our kin
Can think of us, as we think of him.

A Place in Valhalla

Grand Chief John Pavlock left us Friday, May 16, 2014 to take his place in Valhalla where the brave will live forever. Above all things John was a family man. You could always see the Pride he had in his family on his face whenever they were around him. I want you all to know that to John the entire I.O.V. was family. It was an honor to serve with him on the Executive Council where he always showed leadership with strong principles. A quite intelligent man with an impish smile, a quick wit, dry sense of humor and a fierce pride in Heritage, he was a true friend who was admired and will be missed. Our hearts go out to his wife, Debbie, his family, daughters Courtney and Carrie, son-in-laws Mark and Julian, all the members of IngJald Lodge. We all must say goodbye to a true Viking.
Sincerely, Roy James McRae, Executive Council
And Your Brothers and Sisters of Stenkil Lodge #92
