timLouisville’s beloved Tim Krekel passed away at his home in Louisville, KY on June 24, 2009 at the age of 58 after a short bout with cancer.   His website stated that his health had taken a drastic turn for the worse in those last few weeks, but that he died at home under the care of his loving family and hospice.   A dear friend to all of us at WFPK and the entire Louisville music community, Tim will be missed, but described in his final stages what he had as “a most wonderful life!”  We encourage you to leave condolences and fond memories here. 

Tim’s family has set up a memorial fund called “The Krek Fund.” Checks can be made out to that name and dropped off at Ear-xTacy where John Timmons is collecting.  Or mailed to The KREK fund, c/o ear X-tacy Records, 1534 Bardstown Road, Louisville, KY 40205.
