In Memoriam

Master Alfonso de Castille, OL

Or, a griffin segreant

Ron Morgan passed away from a short battle with cancer on July 23rd, 2003.

Alfonso was the first member of the Order of the Laurel of the SCA. He moved to Atenveldt sometime after that and lost track of the SCA (and vice versa). See below ...

Some Reminisces:
"My memory of M. Alfonso covers 26 years (that is how long I was married to him) and includes many SCA events. But, for me the most enteresting thing was when I first married him. He had a closet FULL of costumes, instruments, and stuff. When I asked him what all of it was for he said, "Oh, that stuff was from my days as a musician and the SCA." When I asked him if the group was still around (this was 1977), he was not sure and really did not think that it was. Several years later, I found an ad for an event at the park downtown Ventura. I thought it would be fun to put on the outfits and just drop in. Alfonso was surprised that there was a group in Ventura, CA and thought it a good idea. We grabbed my sister and dressed her up in an outfit, I wore one, and Alfonsa put on one of his old outfits. Off we went to the city park--not sure of what we would find. The group was delighted to see us and made us feel welcome. This is how I became a part of the SCA family and how we both (Alfonso and I) started to play again.)" -- HL Sibylla Timida de Cantabria (mka Loretta Morgan)
