Henry Feger Dies; Rites Are Thursday

In the fall, Mr. Feger had broken his right leg, right shoulder and collar bone, all of the ribs on his left side and punctured a lung. After the first week, he was believed to be recovering but immediate cause of death was attributed to formation of a blood clot.
