Your talk of "rank" is fairly meaningless. All Masons meet on the level. All men are equal. He was a Royal Arch Mason, as his apron has the same triple-tau that I described as being on the other apron & sash in the display case. If you could go back and tell us who he was, maybe a Google search will tell us of his accomplishments, either in Masonry, or to your city.

Note the repeated use of the phallus, or triangle. can mean either man, or taken as a pyramid; ascension to godhood.
The toolbelt is symbolic to the tools that man carries to create; hammer, plane, compass, etc
