Ste Kenwright (1967-2014)
Last Wednesday we lost our beloved fellow member Ste Kenwright (30-05-67 – 01-07-2014) when he finally lost his brave and very long battle against cancer.

Known on this forum as Salvianus, Ste was for a long time a member of the late Roman Comitatus group. Several great articles about being a late Roman soldier can still be found here:

May you rest in peace frater. Our heartfelt sympathies go to Helen, his beloved wife of 20 years.

I never had the pleasure of meeting the gentleman but may I send my condolences to his family and others affected.
Truly saddened to hear this news.

One of the nicest things I ever heard was when Helen said to me that during Steve's illness my books had been a great comfort to him. Steve wrote a fantastic review of 'Roman Military Dress' which he then kindly posted on Amazon. Something for which I was very grateful for.

There is a small tribute to him in my latest project and I am really upset that he will not get to see it.

My sincerest condolences to Helen and family and to all friends of Steve.

Very nice guy and always hugely generous with his time and knowledge. Very, very sad news. All sympathy to Helen and the family. And I found this on an old posting from him.

Moderation in all things
I only knew Ste through re-enactment, which was only a slice of his life. He was a talented singer, poet, musician , actor and scholar. He was also a gentleman, with a good heart and wise words. Although, like the rest of our group, he had been a member of Comitatus, he had since moved on to a more relaxed living history style of re-enactment and during hot summer days became the focus of our Roman camp. He was Salvianus, our storyteller, who summoned the public to the green, young and old, with a blast from his trumpet where he enthralled them with Arthurian tales. At times some of us would act out parts of the play, in good fun, and the crowd enjoyed the story.

I had so many things still to talk to Ste about, questions I meant to ask him next time we met. Sadly, those conversations will now have to wait until later....
