RIP Master Ioseph of Locksley

I am grieved to report ill news from the Rialto. Master Ioseph of Locksley, mka Joe Bethancourt, is dead.

I had the pleasure of knowing Master Ioseph for 25 years. Mostly virtually, occasionally in person, and increasingly rarely as we both were less active in the Society.

The Filk Was Great . . . to quote the title of one of his songs that became the title of our CD that featured him as guest at NEFilk in 2000. But it is done, and he has sung his last song.
