I never served with Sig but I have heard he was a true gentleman and a great Tiffy.

Very sad to hear he passed away doing something he loved.

I send sincere condolences to his family and friends.

RIP Sig.

There are no details on Sig's funeral as yet, and probably won't be for a while due to the legal/medical requirements that abound in aircraft incidents. Hopefully the authorities will find some compassion for the families involved and finalise their requirements quickly.

Details will be advised as soon as known.

As expected, it was a very emotional and fitting celebration of Sig's life. Many tributes from family, shipmates, ship associations and local RSL Sub-branch.

The chapel was overflowing and the atmosphere became like a boiler room, as the ambient temp was about 40deg C.

Still a fitting send-off to a great bloke, a great MOBI and a bloody good Tiff to boot!
