Passing of Earl Sir Bearengaer hinn Rauthi
- Harken to these awful words, wail and rend your garments! Earl Sir
Bearengaer hinn Rauthi has gone to his ancestors in Valhalla on this
9th day of July, A.S. XLII. Let all pay heed to to the passing of
a mighty warrior and a person who enriched the Current Middle Ages.
Bearengaer had been a member of the SCA for almost 40 years. He was
the 8th Knight of the Middle Kingdom, the 9th King of the MidRealm
He was King of the Middle Kingdom for Pennsic 3. He was second
Prince of Drachenwald. In more recent years, as ill health kept him
from the list fields, he served the Kingdom of AEthelmearc by
training new fighters, marshaling, being an MOL and helping Lady
Leah Janette (the Evil Book Lady) run her book business. For
several years, he was Grimm's liaison at Pennsic.
Those wishing to honor him, pray for him or confirm his death should
present themselves on July 14, in Stormsport (Erie, PA) at the
Burton Funeral Home, 602 W. 10th St. A reception will follow at the
home of Viscount Alexander and Viscountess Rannveigr. As he had no
particular religious affiliation or close mundane relatives to be
offended, the funeral will have an SCA theme. SCA attendees are
requested to wear garb. Since "You can't take it with you" is not a
Viking concept, people may bring mementos to put in the coffin.
