2020-2021 Grand Lodge Officers
Most Worshipful Grand Master
(Elected at the 170th Annual Communication on June 4, 2020)
MWB McGuyer was born in Dallas, Texas, in 1956, and later transplanted to North Plains, Ore., with his grandparents. Mike attended many public schools over the years. After graduating high school, he attended two years at Portland State University. Just before starting at PSU, he met his wife, Debbi, at the Oaks Park skating rink. They were married three years later and discovered that Debbi’s parents had also met at the Oaks Park skating rink, just as they had.
Mike worked at the Wigwam sporting goods store in Hillsboro as a clerk before beginning a career under the wing of his stepdad. He learned television and appliance repair as well as business operations for approximately 15 years. In 1992, he formed Oregon Satellite and T.V. Inc. with business partner Patrick Reagan. The company still provides statewide commercial satellite services to businesses, hotels, banks, and the FAA.
In 2004, Mike and Debbi moved from Oregon City to Molalla. Affordability was part of the equation, but an RC flying field helped in the decision. Mike was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason on Jan. 14, 2006, in Molalla Lodge No. 178, when it was in Mulino. He was the last Master Mason to be raised at the old location. A short time later, the Lodge building and property were sold, so the Lodge could move back to downtown Molalla, becoming more visible and better-able to serve the community.
Mike served in various Lodge offices beginning in 2007. In 2014, he received the Hiram Award. Mike’s Grand Lodge service started in M.W.B. Art Bush’s year serving as Junior Grand Deacon, as well as Grand Pursuivant for M.W.B. Rich Martin and M.W.B. Don Stapleton. He served as District Deputy for M.W.B. David Fryday and M.W.B. Michael Wick. The biggest surprise came when M.W.B. Art Borland asked Mike to be his Senior Grand Deacon in 2016. Mike has chaired the Fellows of the Craft as well as The Long Range Planning Committee. Mike is proud to also be a member of the York Rite, Scottish Rite, Al Kader Shrine, and Order of the Eastern Star.
