2022 Dedication

It is with great pleasure that the Bedford County Fair Board dedicates the
2022 Bedford County Premium Book to John Kegg

John Kegg has been working at the Bedford fair since 1967, making the 2022 Fair his 55th year! John "Keggy" enjoys working at the Fair and looks forward to all the smiling faces that he sees while he is parking cars on the livestock side of the fairgrounds at the top gate. You can find him on the tail gate of his truck or on a golf cart exploring the fairgrounds with his friend Bob Hammer, whom he met at the fair when he started, or with his brothers Terry and Ed, who also work parking cars at the fair.
John is married to Judy Kegg and they will celebrate thier 45th anniversary in October. He has two children, Justin Kegg and girlfriend Ashley Foor, and daughter Hillary Clark, married to Ethan Clark. He also has four grandchildren, Katie and Skyler Kegg, Stacy Mearkle, and Ashelyn Clark.
John enjoys traveling to many car shows during the summer to show his 1965 Green Chevy truck, and he has a room full of trophies. He also loves racing and Sprint Cars, the late Greg Hodnett are among his favorites. You will find him Friday night at the races with his son and grandson and Wednesday night at the Rodeo with his family cheering on his granddaughter, Stacy, participating in the barrel racing. His granddaughters, Stacy and Ashelyn, show horses in 4-H and draft club and when you hear him holler you know they just placed! His daughter Hillary shares the love of the fair with him, it is a tradition of theirs to be at the Fair. He also has a hand mower that he fixed up for his granddaughter Katie to enter in the antique tools at the Fair.
John loves the fair and if you know him, he loves Pepsi and Middlesworth potato chips. His favorite color is green, which is quite noticeable with his green and white camper, and his truck and tractors. He loves John Deere and Chevy trucks! He also loves mowing grass. He has a vast collection of ball cap hats and t-shirts. When he is home at night you will find him in his “Cave” watching TV. He spends a lot of time at his home place on Tull's Hill camping and hunting with his brothers and sisters. You will also find him hanging out at at Millers Auto Body in Breezewood where they call him “Earl”, or at McDonald's in the morning having coffee. He loves to joke and talk! John has never met a stranger and knows someone everywhere he goes. Thank you John for your dedication to the Bedford County Fair!
