Summary:

This is a heartfelt (if rambling), often emotional, and very raw memorial to Peter Paddon, who passed away at the end of October 2014. You will hear my memories of him, what I owe him (hint: a lot), some of his thoughts in his own words, and a bit of the music he liked to play on his show. Words cannot truly express the loss, but I hope this will provide at least a little closure and solace for those who—like me—have been deeply impacted by Peter’s departure from this world. Bendith, Peter.

The sound bites you hear are selections from Peter’s Crooked Path Podcast, both in its old form and its more recent incarnation. If you don’t listen to the show, I’d highly recommend doing so, as Peter left behind a tremendous amount of wisdom and information for us. Some of the episodes sampled include “Leadership,” “Cosmic Soup & the Might Dead,” “The Dark Mother,” “Samhain,” “Pagan Celebrity,” “Pagan Fundamentalism,” and “Living a Magical Life.” You should also visit Pendraig Publishing to find out more about the written legacy Peter leaves us.

You can donate to the Peter Paddon GoFundMe campaign on the main New World Witchery site (at the top right of the page), or through this link. I’ll also be donating all royalties from 54 Devils to the fund (or one of his family’s choosing) from October through December 2014 to help out, so you can support them that way if you prefer.

If you have feedback you’d like to share, email us or leave a comment. We’d love to hear from you!

Dear friends,

If you have not heard yet, last Thursday morning the news came that good friend, teacher, and cunning man Peter Paddon had passed away in his sleep during the night. You can read his full obituary at the Wild Hunt, which presents a small sampling of the many, many people his loss has left grieving (not least his wonderful wife Linda and his children). I am unsure of the future trajectory of the numerous projects to which he had put his industrious and enchanted hands (a fancy way of saying I don’t know what will happen next with things like the Crooked Path, Pendraig Publishing, and other things he was working on). But I do know that like many others, my heart breaks to think of a world without him in it. I recognize that he is with us still as an ancestor, but I will very much miss seeing him in person for the remainder of my time here in the mortal realm.

I’m working on several memorial projects at the moment, as Peter was a major influence on me and on what I do. I expect that you’ll see those appear in the future through our site here. For now, I know that his family will need support and assistance. To that end, I’ve posted a button on the top right of the page which you can click to offer some financial support to the family. Or you can just click here. I am going to be donating this week, and I have decided to donate all proceeds from October to December 2014 from sales of my book Fifty-four Devils to Peter’s family or a fund of their choosing as well. I encourage anyone who can to help.

As I learn more about the legacy Peter leaves, and what will happen with his many projects in the future, I’ll keep you posted. Until then, as Peter would say, Bendith.

Blessings to you,

-Cory
