His Grace Duke Ostwald Konrad von Riesetoten passed away on the evening of June 24th, 2016 after suffering a massive heart attack two days previously. He was 48 years old.
Duke Ostwald is survived by his lady wife Duchess Kaye of Gordon, daughter Dani of Oakheart and son Keldon of Oakheart.
Twice King of Calontir, Thegn and current seneschal of the Shire of Oakheart , Ostwald touched many lives. A respected and valiant knight, he also was instrumental in the growth of both Youth Combat and Calontir Steel. There has been an outpouring on the Kingdom Facebook page of stories and remembrance of his kindness, his teaching, his honor and his chivalry. But most especially, his love for his wife and children, and for this community we all share. For those not on Facebook, Mistress Sofya la Rus has collected many of these remembrances on Ostwald’s Calontir Wikispace page:

On a personal note, Ostwald was my brother in service, having received our Cross of Calontir on the same day, and brother in arms on the stile field. I will miss his presence.
A celebration of life will be held Sunday, July 10th at 2:00 pm at Forsyth United Methodist Church, 14399 US-160, Forsyth, MO 65653.
