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.
My sincere condolences to Margaret and family. May cherish memories bring you peace and comfort during this difficult time.

I will deeply miss interacting with Al on Audiogon threads. I learned a lot from Al.


My goodness that’s sad. Not to sound too selfish but we’ve lost a great member and a great resource of information. A gentleman. I wish his family well.
I have been taking a break from audio and this site for over a year now and today I log on and see this. Just when I thought this year couldn’t get any worse we lose one of the truest and finest of gentleman. Rest In Peace Al, you will truly be missed. 
A recent anecdote... that's quintessentially Al, in so many ways. And an audiophile through and through to the very end...

From Margaret:

"Among all the other ways Al had positive contributions to make, perhaps, is that he was the first hospice patient at Yale to figure out how to pipe in music audio into the 4 Supportive Care Unit rooms."
