Yet another from the 18th intake, passed the bar last Tuesday succumbing to cancer throughout his body. Daffy was a great guy and I am just glad that I got some valuable time with him while visiting Perth and at MOBI reunions in 2008 and 2015.

Funeral is 22 Feb in Esperance WA as far as I know.

RIP mate

RIP big man.

I had the pleasure of spending some time with Daffy on the "Ferry". Always enjoyed a good laugh and he could be real larrikan at times.

Sad to hear of his passing.

RIP Ian :salute1:
