Oh, goodness, what a shock to hear about the passing of Daggsey. He was one of the early stalwarts of the forum and the vintage caravan community.
Many newer members of the forum won’t know him, but he was amongst the early members of the forum and became involved in November 2004. He was one of the Western Australian contingent on the forum. As Cobber has said, one of his enduring contributions to the forum was to document his travels in his vintage van and Holden. He was a sign writer by trade and used to carry his machine with him on his travels, and make signs as he went. That included making decals for many forum members.
I only met Daggsey in person once or twice, but got to know him via the forum and Facebook. He always came across as a friendly, happy go lucky sort of bloke with a ready smile, who after contact with you somehow left you feeling that your spirits had been lifted.
We will miss him, and trust that the memory of him will give great comfort to Loraine and his family.
So sad to hear of Daggsey's passing, my condolences to Carrots and the whole family. I don't think anything ever rattled him with his even nature and easy humour. Unfortunately he was never able to get to his first caravan, a Linda Star, even though it may have actually been on the forum at one stage. I will never forget his "Duck with Attitude" that he made for the testosterone-filled teardrop that koala built. At Rest
