International Association Past Presidents (Departed)

Below are the International Association Past Presidents who were leaders in our organization but have passed beyond the veil to a higher calling.

We take a moment to reflect on each one’s legacy in the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and remember that they may be gone from earth, but they will always remain part of our Order and our hearts.
