Chrysty – It is with great sorrow that I write. Shocked would be a better term, but our deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. Doug was a friend and a leader on this site and in his life. Always willing to get involved to help make a difference, to make the world a better place. We will miss him, but being the “good man” that he was, there is no doubt that he has moved on to a better place and we have no doubt that he is continuing to do good things at his heavenly destination. If there is any way that we can assist, please feel free to ask. Blessings to your family during their time of trial and loss.
It's better to be hated for who you are than to be loved for who you are not!

I'm very sorry to hear of the passing of Digger, I have talked with him many times over the years as he was a huge supporter of our product and owned just about everything we ever made. His experience and vast knowledge will be sadly missed on this forum. From all the staff at Excalibur Crossbow, we give our condolences.

thank you

again i'd like to say thank you to everyone who has posted in response. the final details are finally starting to come together. as my father wished he will be creamated in the next few days and there will not be a visitation, if you like donations were asked to the diabetes assosiation in his name or to the fir fighters vetrans association. i have just finished reading the other thread on donations and am going to pass the information that everyone has posted to the rest of the family and find out what they think of the ideas. i'm sure we will agree with what ever you think best. thank you again

Spoke many times to Doug, and seemed to spend are time buying and selling each others excal products and such, to each other. :) I spent the morning at my God Mother's funeral, then came home to read this. I couldn't post until now. If ever my Heart needed nitro spray it's been today. 3 times already. This day is not a good one for me. I will miss you Doug. :cry: My Deepest Sympathy to the Family. We have lost one of the Great one's.

What??? Wow??!!!

Very unexpected. I did not think this is what this thread was going to be about.

Digger will be sorely missed by all. His wealth of information, and his humour will be missed most.

Digger's Death

Post by Michael Stogre » Wed Sep 10, 2008 5:11 pm

I would like to add my condolences and prayers to the many already
expressed on this site. He will be greatly missed. My only direct dealing
with him was to mediate the sale of an excalibur wolverine.
