BIOGRAPHY

Luis Quiroga Cossio was born on 23 April 1893 in San Felipe, Chile to parents Federico Quiroga and Eliodora Cossio de Quiroga.

On 17 November 1920, aged 27, he married Evangelina Sara Riquelme Pareja in Chile’s capital city of Santiago. A couple of years earlier, at the age of 25, he became a Freemason, and remained part of the Order for the rest of his life. In 1996, when he was 103, Quiroga Cossio was recognized as being the oldest Freemason in Chile.

Quiroga Cossio passed away in Santiago, Chile, on 9 August 2003 at the age of 110.
