    Was a emotional day for all I nearly kept it together but you got me too Bob. That would if been bloody hard but thank you for getting up and saying something for us all here.

    I use to look forward to every camp where Roofie was coming along. He was such a easy going bloke and I could chat for hours with. Shooting guns hunting farming etc he was a man full of yarns and experiences.

    Never think your not welcome Jane I really hope you can make it to future trips and we would be happy to pick you up in the way past but you may have to share the back seat with a lil girl who wont stop talking hehe.

    Was blown away by how many people came today and distance driven but that's just a testament to our forever great mate
    Roofie.

    Rest easy old mate and look forward to catching up around a big ol bonfire again one day.

    Bob, thank you mate that was an incredibly hard thing to do and you did it beautifully.

    Very saddened by the news. He was a great bloke and will be sadly missed. A greater man will be hard to find. RIP buddy. Always in our memories.

    So nice to read all these comments supporting Jane and remembering Roofy.
    There are so many names of folk who were here when the forum first started that were able to send O'l mate off in style and Bob has done an astounding job by your comments.
    I've been away from here for a while and Roofy suggested I log on and have a look around which I did, not saying anything but seeing what he was talking about.
    Life doesn't allow us to do everything we want and getting back to Victoria on Friday wasn't possible but I can say I was in a quiet place at the time of his service with my hat over my heart thinking of a lost mate.
    He always talked of the get togethers with a lot of you and always remembers the help we all gave him and Jane. A nicer bloke would be hard to find.
    Thank you to all of you.
    Cheers
    Macca

    So on the day of the funeral / wake , towards the end I held my breath & went in to see Jane , the conversation went something like this - hi Jane Im not sure if you remember me , she said oh yes I remember you ( with a wry smile ) , I said I had the honour of giving Roofy his 1st Jagr bomb at Licola , she said yes I remember that & so did he well that was the end of me - I cried like a baby 😭 , I only knew him for a short time but he made quite an impact . A truely genuine down to earth bloke . RIP .

    Nice Sprock. I dont think there'll be another bloke on this forum like Sir Roofy. He was cut from a different cloth that's no longer made. Very organic, a little rough around the edges, absolutely no synthetics included. Some wear and tear from a life tougher than we live; from pastimes rougher than sitting in a 4by up a hill, yet he was as kind and accepting as anybody could be to a younger generation not having done the things he did. Loved that man.
    When you have to shoot, shoot.
    Don't talk.

    Absolutely gutted, I wasn't able to make it on Friday. Just returned home from some FIFO work.
    I've only ever seen and spoken to Craig two or three times at a each of the meetups.
    But the very first time I met him, his first words to me was some strong advice!!

    I walked up to him next to a fire, and introduced my self, I'm so and so ... And when I told him my forum name, he went "Ohhhhhh you're Hodge"
    Then randomly he put his hand on my shoulder leaned toward me , his Akubra almost hitting my forehead, and said, mate you really need to stop stressing and just drive the thing!
    This was during the time where I was worrying about some 3L problems, so that's where he was coming from!

    Wise words Craig mate, wise words! Stress less people, lifes too short for that!

    RIP my friend.

    Something Roofy was very proud of supporting was the Mountain Cattlemen’s Association of Victoria or MCAV.

    Not sure why I thought of this but I remember my dad used to have this sticker on his old Hilux in the 80’s so just ordered one to support them and a reminder of old mate.

    Check them out here if anyone is interested

    Free sticker here for a little memory of Roofy on your Patrol or shed wall.
