    It's with deep sadness that I have to report that our friend Ted Feger, Tbars4 died Tuesday April 4th at 3:57pm.

    Ted stayed with Char and I the first week in March immediately after the rockcrawling event in Congress, AZ. Ted told me that he just had one of the worst asthma attacks of his life out at camp, but while he was there he had kept it to himself, not letting on to anyone there know that he was sick.

    He had an inhaler and was using it regularly when he was with us. I had never seen Ted so weak. He couldn't walk from the bathroom to the living room without becoming winded. We asked if he wanted us to take him to a doctor, or the ER, but he declined.

    After 5 nights he said he was feeling much better and moved on. I contacted him a couple times afterwards to see how he was doing. He said that the drier air was helping him and that he was feeling much better.

    Fast forward to yesterday afternoon. I am camping near the AZ, CA border in our RV and I received a phone call from a women who is part of the rockcrawling group that Ted followed/photographed. She told me that she knew very few details, but that Ted had passed away and the coroners office was looking for leads as to next of kin. All I was able to supply was his mailing address, a PO Box in Orange, CA. (If you have any information regarding any property Ted may own, or next of kin please contact me privately).

    A few hours later she called back with more details. On Tuesday Ted had stopped by the shop of one of the businesses which supports the rockcrawlers. He was very ill, and was taken from there to the hospital where he died shortly after getting there.

    Ted has always been a very helpful member here at EF, ready to lend his help where ever he could. For the past few years he has stayed with Char and I when he's in the area for the rockcrawling events. He was also a regular at our Truck Haven runs.

    Rest in peace Ted. Your family here at Explorer Forum will miss you greatly. I already do. :(
