Stephen Bishop of Fort Worth died Oct. 9.
Born in Sacramento, Calif., Bishop moved to
Fort Worth with his parents as a young child, liv-
ing most of his life here and keeping his roots in
Dallas-Fort Worth no matter where he went. He
graduated from Eastern Hills High School, and
then went on to Stephen F. Austin State Univer-
sity where he earned his master's degree in fine
arts, with a special-
ization in costuming.
Bishop did freelance
costume design in
Florida and Califor-
nia, and then went
on to design cos-
tumes for the Bristol
near Chicago, HI. He also worked for Frankels
Costumes in Houston and Incredible Produc-
tions in Dallas before making his own mark on
the costuming world through a joint venture
with Wendy Dillard called The Creative Alliance.
Bishop and Dillard created costumes for
church groups and Incredible Productions, and
they coordinated the costumes for the Dallas
Christmas Festival at Prestonwood Baptist
Church in Piano for several years. One of his
greatest costuming achievements were the an-
gels in the Christmas Festival who actually
seemed to fly during the performance. He also
costumed the Casa Manana production of The
Music Man at Bass Hall.
Bishop loved roller coasters and was a card
carrying member of American Coaster Enthusi-
asts. He loved big band music, the Carpenters,
Glee and Broadway show tunes. He was also a
member of the Fort Worth Scottish Association.
His family and friends offered a special "thank
you" to the staff at Kindred Hospital who treated
Bishop and his family with tender loving care in
their time of need.
Bishop was preceded in death by his father,
He is survived by his mother, Stella Bishop; his
uncle, Gordon Dollar; his cousin, Angela Bandy;
his aunts, Joyce Morris and Margie Ford; his
caretaker and dear, friend Edmund Wirfel; his six
cats and a host of friends across the country that
will miss him dearly.

eventually "But I think it's an uphill battle."
Jones said she works for a very conservative
company with very conservative customers, and
"I had a customer walk out when she heard me
talk about my wedding."
After the downtown event, Jones said she and
Evans and their friends will go to Chili's to cete-
brate and then the couple will leave on their hon-
eymoon. They're going to Granbury to relax and
get away from work, she said.
"We talked about following this up with a New
York wedding," Jones said. And then she'd like to
come home and just be accepted.
"I would love to be able to hold my wife's hand
in a mall without a mother coming up to me and
telling me it's wrong to do that in front of her chil-
dren," she said.
Cates said that couples who would like to par-
ticipate in the wedding ceremony should arrive at
4 p.m. for a short rehearsal. At 4:30 p.m. there will
be an open mike for 30 minutes before a sidewalk
Cates said that a street permit was denied be-
cause the police are stretched thin with the State
Fair of Texas and the Occupy Dallas protests. Side-
walk marches require fewer officers,
After the march, two people will speak before
the mass wedding takes place. Richard Curtin,
better known as Edna Jean Robinson, will offici-
ate. He will conduct a "white knot" ceremony
rather than have the couples exchange rings. The
white knot, a symbol of marriage equality, repre-
sents tying the knot. ■
