  16. Dear Lynne,
    We are so sorry to hear about Daryl’s passing, a life taken way to soon. Daryl was a friend to all and will be sadly missed. He was a great mate and I will cherish that forever. Training rides won’t be the same. He was always up for a chat and would get around to
    everyone. It was always an amusing ride with Daryl because he had this little piece of road rage in him. It always made for and interesting ride. R.I.P mate. Never to be forgotten.
    Love Grant and Louise Rogers.

  17. Dear Lynne, we are very sad to hear of the passing of Daryl at such a young age, our deepest sympathies to you and your family. Daryl was an extremely positive influence on a couple of kids from the bush when we first turned up as apprentices in the big smoke, providing great support and guidance through the early parts of our careers. Very fond memories of working with Daryl over the years and who will ever forget that beaming smile and the immaculately clean car. RIP mate.

  18. To the family, my deepest condolences and sympathies.

    Daryl Will remain a key real gentleman I will always remember. His support, his friendship, great knowledge and love of all things cycling stands him appart from so many. His passion and loved for cycling, and his family and friends is just wonderful. The details and care he had for all his endeavours is a guide to how we should tackle ourselves.

    Thank you Daryl for the great wheel to follow.

    Lots of love to you and family.

    Sorry to hear about the passing of Daryl. My thoughts are with you today on this sad occasion.

    Just remember, Daryl is no longer suffering. Think back on the fun times you had together, to help you through the dark times. Even though you can’t see him, he lives on inside you. Nothing can take that from you.
