Unto the Great Kingdom of Ansteorra, 
It is with sadness and a heavy heart that I bring this news to  you...
Duke Jean Richard Malcolmson; holder of an AoA (1987), KSCA  (1993), Count 
(1995), Duke (1998), Holder of the Kings Blade of Chivalry (2000),  Award of the 
Compass Rose (2000), and Sable Crane of Ansteorra (2003)  passed away at his 
home suddenly on Sunday May 25, 2008.
His Grace was a devoted father of four: Suzanne, Rachel, Matthew, and  
William, a loving husband, loyal to his friends and a moral  and life-loving man.  
Duke Richard was respected and beloved by  his Knight, Duke Patrick Michael 
Gordonne and his Sensei, Duke Sigmund the  Wingfooted and was a member of a group 
of his peers and friends known  simply in Ansteorra as "The Backyard".
He reigned with two Queens; his beloved wife, Countess Anora Frayne of  
Winward and his friend, Countess Gladwen of Ayelsford.  His Grace was a  force to 
be reckoned with on the field of battle.  His prowess and his  devotion to the 
martial arts were second to none.  He learned to fight  right-handed and then 
changed in mid-stream to fight his preferred style - left  handed.
Duke Jean Richard was a friend who was always there even when others were  
not.  We will always feel his presence in the Society through the Peers he  
helped to elevate and the recognition he gave to those deserving gentles in our  
great kingdom.  He will also be known in the modern world by the work he  
performed, the children he and his wife helped to raise, and the joy and  devotion 
he had for his friends in and out of the Society.
Ansteorra, take notice, for one of your Kings has passed on to the next  
Realm.  We will miss you, Your Grace.
Duke Patrick Michael Gordonne
