It is with great sadness that the Gazette reports on the death of Master Sheldon the Just. The Gazette learned of his passing on Wednesday, April 16th following a very brief battle with Pancreatic cancer. He is survived by his wife Ruth. Master Sheldon was a pillar of the community in the Barony of Concordia of the Snows and many who have shared remembrances publicly have likened him to a rock for his steadfast support of the Barony.
Master Sheldon received his Award of Arms in 1988 from Their Royal Majesties Randall and Katherine. He was also a member of the Order of the Terpsichore, the Order of the Silver Crescent and the Queen’s Order of Courtesy. He was a member of the Brewer’s Guild in the Barony of Concordia of the Snows and was recognized with their Order of the Sapphire, which is an award for Arts and Sciences, in 1999. He was a well known Archery Captain and also served as the Exchequer for the Central Region of the East Kingdom. He was elevated to the Order of the Pelican by Their Majesties Kenric and Avelina in January of this year for his long and excellent service to the Society and to the Kingdom.
