Unfortunately, I was passed some very sad information this morning.

Taffy1967 a long standing member of this forum passed away last night.

Taffy1967 provided this forum with some excellent information, a long standing membership and a general all-out passion for minis and the mini community.

Our thoughts go out to his family and friends at this sad time.

His family/wife would like a mini precession for taffys funeral, of which I will post details as and when I recieve them. It would be great if members in the area could attend and make the wishes of darryl a reality.

Again, thoughts are with his family at this hard time.

Totally shocked by this sad news, hard to believe..................Taffy ( Darryl) sent me a pm only a couple of weeks ago to say he had been busy converting and uploading more Mini videos and kindly asking if I would like some copies sent to me on dvd.
He was a great character and true enthusiast with a great passion for his many interests.......he will be sadly missed by myself and many others on the Mini scene. Condolences to his family and friends.

Cant believe im reading this! Taffy1967 was a brilliant guy and a great character on the forum, never met him in person but was nice to know him. His logic and knowledge of all things mini was extraordinary. Will be greatly missed.

My thoughts go out to his family.

RIP Taffy

Really can't believe this, such an enthusiastic guy willing to help anyone out it seemed. Certainly did his bit on here, it won't be the same.

Rest in piece, my thoughts go out to his family and friends.

All my thoughts go to his friends and family.

Being myself quite new to the forum I've enjoyed all his videos and learnt from his knowledge and advice.

Rest In Peace in where the good people go. You'll be missed.

Sad times.
