Marc Bebout, Sr.

Marc Bebout, who served as the Noble Grand Humbug of Julia C Bulette Chapter in 2002, has recently gone to the Silver Hills. He was known as the “King of Fun” and was responsible for the Pony Express Route monument in Mound House, NV, not far from the Moonlite Bunny Ranch. Marc brought the legendary bordello manager Dennis Hof into our chapter. XNGH Jeff Johnson offers this remembrance:

I was Royal Platrix. I was at Chavez all day with Walt cooking. Then Bebout rolled over the bridge with Dennis Hof and a limo full of whores. Red shirts were flying. Zewadski lost his shit. Dennis walked up to join the HOCO as clean as a button. Li’l Al smudged him with goo from some fellow PBC. Bebout was aghast but Hof handled it great. He looked overdressed for a HOCO any way. The Gold Dust gambled every dime, we never saw him again. The musician quit, during the Doins but Owen held the fort. JD Paterson must have been the Hangman. And that is a story of the King of Fun in June 2002.
