Deceased – Obit

John Paul Husvar passed to the next life on the evening of December 22, 2010, after a brief second battle with lung cancer. He was born December 27, 1946 in Martin's Ferry, a son of the late John W. and Janice (Chippi) Husvar. John attended New Baltimore Community Church. He was a volunteer during the Vietnam War in the United States Marine Corps but was only able to serve six weeks before receiving a medical discharge. He worked in many roles in his life; blacksmith, business owner, wheelchair technician, industrial crane engineer, as well as other technical endeavors. He was a lifetime learner, having accumulated over 175 hours towards a degree at Kent State University from 1976 to the mid 1990's. He was an avid reader, an active thinker, and a Renaissance man in every sense of the word. John is survived by his wife of 42 years, Linda J. (Aschcraft) Husvar; son, Jerod; daughter Ruth; and six grandchildren, Samantha, Mikayla, Hadley, Caulin, Chloe, and Johnna Marie; sister, Janice; niece, Elaina; as well as many cousins who reside in Texas. He also leaves behind his very special friends, Kim and Kathy George, and their daughter, Theresa George Prince. Three cats also greatly miss his love. His wished were to be cremated and his ashes will be spread on his sister's farm in Texas, as well as launched on the Viking Ship Ceremony at the Great Pennsic War in Slippery Rock, PA. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to either your local branch of The Society for Creative Anachronism ( or the National MS Society ( John loved the SCA and was helped many times by the NMSS. In lieu of tears and sadness, raise a toast in his honor.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
