Hello all who will read this! Many things have happened in the last year... Most importantly I am in the process of buying a house in Warren, Ohio. Although it is small and cluttered due to the amount of business stuff we have at the moment, it is a house and the utilities are on, even if we are a bit behind at this time.
This Winter my Mentor Johan passed, this is a very sad time for me as he was like a second father and it had been several years since I had been able to visit with him. With his passing I will be making all of the blacksmithed stuff that I had learned from him and putting my own "twist" on them.
I am redesigning my business starting with the name. Black Market Trades has now become Valhalla's Anvil. I will be improving my quality yet again.
This is the time I will show the world what Black Angus and Valhalla's Anvil can do!
Thank you All,
Black Angus Silverleaf
wish u the best..........
That is kind of funny because Johan used to be into Photography...lol. I am not sure if it is or not I will try to remember to ask his son if he knows!
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 (www.sca.org) or the National MS Society (www.nationalmssociety.org). John loved the SCA and was helped many times by the NMSS. In lieu of tears and sadness, raise a toast in his honor.
At this time I have my stuff on Etsy, Facebook, Myspace, Here and on a Steampunk site. I have been trying to get a website for many years with friends that have said they could do it for free or for trade but they never came through. So I am stuck because I am a computer moron! LOL
My condolences. I cannot imagine...
You already do beautiful work and you're out to top yourself,eh? Your work in 2011 may be some of the most amazing stuff we've seen, yet :)
