That's horrible news.
I can only hope that his parents can recover as good as possible.

Kegger was my best friend and massive storehouse of information on all things tubes. His contributions here and on other forums have helped many in their quest for better sound. The family would appreciate any and all help in dealing with his untimely loss and final expenses.


Please feel free to share this link via whatever social media or forums you can or contribute whatever you feel comfortable with; I know the family will appreciate it.

As an update, his mother has been discharged to her daughter for home care as her two broken wrists render her arms useless, and his father is doing well after a 5 hour surgery yesterday. He suffer a head injury, heart injury, a broken pelvis and two collapsed lungs in the impact.

Thank you in advance for your kind thoughts and support in his family's time of need.

Kegger gave me a lot of (online) help a few years ago when I was building a tube amp project.
He was a very straightforward and generous person.
He will be missed.

RIP. I'll always remember his help when I was designing my amplifier.
