Our dear friend and helper passed away on May 20, 2002. He was Josiane's husband. Dave's strength, courage and cheer will always be an inspiration to us. He was a truly good man, a wonderful husband, father and friend, and is sorely missed.
was Kadon's data entry guru for over 10 years. A Kadon customer since 1986, and a computer programmer for even more years, Julie in 1992 formed her own "Mail Wizard" company to help small businesses with mailing list maintenance and business software. Julie provides this service even while holding a full-time job at DHHS.
The energetic and multi-talented Julie has made many kinds of craftsfor example, ceramic fantasy castles that serve as desk organizers. Among her hobbies are jigsaw puzzles, word puzzles, collecting Kadon games, Magic the Gathering, science fiction, camping, and singing. Especially exciting was her stage debut in 1999 with the Victoria Lyric Opera Company of Rockville (Maryland) in a production of Gilbert and Sullivan's "Princess Ida" as a member of the chorus. Since that time she is almost always in rehearsals for one or another of G&S's merry productions.
Julie was an army brat and has lived in Illinois, France, Indiana and Texas. She now resides in Rockville, MD, with her husband, Jim. During the annual Maryland Renaissance Festival, Julie and her lovely daughter, Cassandra, don their splendid costumes and occasionally have helped out in the Kadon booth.
If you are interested in attending any of Julie's musical performances, you can reach her by email.
Ken Isbell was such a fan of our Renaissance Festival exhibit for years that he finally talked us into giving him his own game table to explain and entertain visitors with the Royal Game of the Goose and especially the Game of the Labyrinth, which he did with gusto for a number of years, adding much to the merriment at Ye Olde Gamery.
His work for the Smithsonian Institution in staging exhibits has included working with actual Star Trek memorabilia and other fascinating slices of history. Ken can wear a Renaissance outfit with dramatic flair like few others. He still visits occasionally, now bedecked with ever more beads, rings and tattoos, a colorful pirate figure. He reprised his rollicking Goose Master role during parts of the 2015 and 2017 season.
