R.I.P. Jef Leppard

June 12th, 2012 by

Former guitarists of Voetsek Jef Leppard passed away two days ago as a result a motorcycle accident, and his partner Nikki is currently in the hospital in critical condition. Please read on for information about how to help and where everyone is gathering to remember Jeff:

Our community has lost a very loved/respected individual over the past 24 hours and for this we mourn, all in our unique ways. RIP Jef Leppard. Now we’re all gathering the light of the universe and sending it to Nikki Davis for a full recovery… I just left SFGH, she can not have visitors at this time/and prolly not for a couple days. Nikki’s mom Donna Lee Wayrynen Culbert and father Smiley are here with various family members. We are setting up a memorial for Jef at Lennon Rehearsal for this Saturday June 16 7-10pm. He will be cremated. Please pass this info along, they have so many friends and extended family who truly care for them…this has been devastating.

Is there any way to donate online, for those of us unable to attend the memorial?

RIP Jef. You were one of the finest people I ever had the pleasure to know. I’m heartbroken for Nikki, and I hope our little community can help her in every way possible during her recovery.

I haven’t seen Jeff in some time but I’m sure gonna miss him. Such a great spirit and always a pleasure to run into. Nikki too. My thoughts are with her and all their family and friends. A great loss.

The family has created a page for Nikki’s medical updates as well as details about an account started by the family. ALL proceeds will go to Jeff’s funeral/cremation, Nikki’s medical bills, and basic living expenses while she recovers. Details…http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/nikkidavis/

See you all Saturday!!!!

My band and I just spent all last week recording with Jeff, and this is just such a shock. He is so talented and has such a great spirit.
He will be truly missed.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, wife, and friends.
