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
