Member Almarg passed away last night


Al ( @almarg ) passed away peacefully yesterday evening, September 14th, 2020.

Margaret, Al's wife, was by his side most of the afternoon.

Both she and Al, as well as Al's family, were deeply touched by the outpouring of respect and appreciation for Al from members who, via written word, shared so very much in the 'Update on Audiogon Member Almarg' thread.

 Margaret extends her thanks, gratitude and appreciation to all members. She treasures each and every post.

So Sorry and Sad to hear this.

Al was always a true Gentelman,
by kindly and generously sharing his knowledge, informing and educating those like myself when understanding of things electronics and electrical had hit a wall...
I for one am in his debt.

Thanks a bunch Al

Also my deepest condolences to Margaret and all his loved ones.
My condolences and prayers for the family. This is a big loss for the audiophile community which he touched so many lives. RIP Almarg. You will be missed.
Margaret asked me to share the link below, should Audiogon Members want to sign the guestbook, send an online sympathy card, upload a photo, etc.

As a few have alluded to, Al IS that example we should all aspire too. I simply cannot thank Al enough for that. It is not easy, yet his example will persist forevermore.

Margaret, my condolences to you with prayers asking for comfort from the Lord above. And thoughts of Al being warmly greeted at the Pearly Gates.

David, thank you so much for your kindness toward Al, his family, and to us all.

Douglas Schroeder and others, much appreciation for your having reached out to Al.
@david_ten thank you for everything you have done to keep us posted.

Such a sad day in the Audiogon world. Al was the epitome of everything this place could be. He set an example we should all look to follow.  Apart from that, he was a friend. I’m honored to have gotten to know him. God bless you, Al. Peace to Margaret and the family...
