On March 3rd, 2023 an amazing member of the sci-fi/fantasy/literature convention community passed away.
David Cleric, the Man with the Flamingos (ask us about the origin story sometime) was one of the very first people to start working on an idea that became P-CON.
He’s worked many other conventions around the nation over the past several years, became a rock for people to get advice, an ear to hear their troubles, and all around networking extraordinaire.
His involvement in the Sherwood Reananise as part of Clan xxx was legendary. His time with MarsCon left a great many a story. His attendance from Fantisci Con to FenCon left many memories and friends who greatly miss him and talk of their time together.
A Veteran (Both the US Navy and the US Army – figure that out!), husband, father, and dear friend. We all miss you and shall raise a glass in your memory at P-Con 2023.
