From Viscountess Judith of Kirtland:
Viscount Master Syr Bear, my friend and first citizen of Æthelmearc, died at his home Saturday, sitting at his computer. His family and I will be arranging his service (see below).
He also asked that a party be held in his memory at Pennsic; of course, this will be done. He leaves a Bear-sized hole that will never be filled.
Bear’s funeral services will be Friday, January 27, 2023 at Dusckas Funeral Home, 2607 Buffalo Road, Erie, PA 16510, between 2 to 3 P.M. (visitation) and 3 to 4 P.M. (memories).
Thank you for your kind thoughts; Bear knew he had friends but he didn’t know how much he was loved.
