Andrew Koenig, 1968-2010

Andrew Koenig, son of Star Trek‘s Walter Koenig, was found dead in Vancouver’s Stanley Park after the actor had been missing since Valentine’s Day, victim of an apparent suicide. Koenig was probably best known as Kirk Cameron’s friend “Boner” on the ’80s sitcom Growing Pains, but nerds likely knew him best for his father; however, Andrew also played the Joker in the acclaimed fan film Batman: Dead End, above. There’s no amount of condolences that would help anyone during this tragedy, especially from a dumb nerd site, but we will say that Koenig was talented and his family have our deepest sympathies.
