His Excellency, William Fitzwalter of Wallingsford-3rd
baron of the Stargate. He was severely injured in a car accident and eventually succumbed to his injuries. This
occured while he was our Baron and it deeply shook the Barony to experience this grief.
Sir John the Plain of Shern-1st Knight of Ansteorra. Affectionately
called John-John the Plain-Plain. His fighting skills and stories of him still are told in our Kingdom. John eventually succumbed
to injuries from an old accident.
Lord Thoron Draconis-Founder of House Dragonshadow and squire to
Sir John the Plain of Shern. Known affectionately as "Bam-Bam" by the other fighters. A big man, with a huge heart and bigger
smile, he loved life and the SCA. Thoron passed suddenly and tragically of a stroke, leaving our community stunned at his
Her Excellency, Mistress Cadi ferch Branwyn-One of our seneschals
and a person who loved our Barony very much. She moved to Loch Sollier and became their Baroness before passing away from
a long illness.
Duke Jean Richard Malcolmson-It is always shocking to
lose a member of the royal family and more so when they grew up in your own area. HG Richard was a familiar sight on the practice
fields in the Barony until he had to move away. His death was sudden and unlooked for and more grievous because of this.
Lord Geof Weakarm-Squire brother to Lord Thoron and member of House
Dragonshadow. A gentle giant with a shy smile, he had not played in our games for a while but was still remembered by many
for his gentle and kind ways. Geof left us in 2008 from complications due to illness.
Mistress Janet of House Morningstar-Janet was one of those
who entered the SCA in some of its earliest times and was a major influence on its direction. Still a viable and visible participant
to the very last days of her life, she was instrumental in helping found our barony, our kingdom and lately was very influencial
in the equestrian community. We miss her quick wit, vast memory, and boundless experience. Her sudden passing stunned the
whole kingdom and had repercussions throughout the Society.
Don Christoforo Antonio Passavanti-A fine man who was loved by all.
A noble heart if ever there was one. He was a part of our Barony from his youth and left behind his wife and child due to
a vehicle accident in 2009.
Her Excellency, Mistress Arlene the Soother-October 2009-Stargate's
first baroness sitting with HE, Sir Tarl Mapt, stepping up 6/17/79 and stepping down 7/04/82. While not a visible presence
in Stargate for more than two decades, she was a very visible part at the Texas Renaissance festival first with her theater
troop, Cat Box Theater, and then at the information booth at the gates.
Feanor the Elf-November 2009-this gentle is unknown
to most at this time. He is remembered only by those long within our Barony. A slight man of frail health, he is best remembered
for his skill on the harp. We used to delight to his playing under the moonlight where with the lovely music he truely appeared
to be one with his name.
