Bad News Unfortunately re Lig

Get fucking fucked

Fuck it

Ahhh, shit and bugger :( Vale Lignin.


Sadly, we can’t be there, but let’s know the date and we’ll wear a rude tee shirt out of respect! :anguished:

Saturday 3rd june

Bugger, fuck, fuck, bugger.

Really sad news.

Bugger to fucking buggery, that’s shit. Glad for him and his family that it came on suddenly at the end. RIP Liggy


Is Jim’s son going to be present.
For those who never met Jim, think of ‘All creatures great and small’ not James Herriot, Jim was more like Siegfried, did not tolerate fools gladly and a spade was a spade and if you felt insulted then he felt he had got his point across.
A number of us went out to lunch with Jim and we never needed a floorshow, Jim would let loose with his tales of woe and relate to the fools who wanted to cross swords with him (but never won), dedicated hater of Gough Whitlam and religious zealots but generous to those who were privileged to be amongst his ‘flock’.
He even liked my dog which was something of a surprise.
I doubt I can make it as I still have a stuffed back but I’ll see how I go after a physio session on Tuesday, if I do go I can probably manage a passenger if anyone else wants a lift.

Never met him but enjoyed his wit and gruff online demeanour. RIP Liggy.

Lousy news. Never met Jim but he was quite clearly a good bloke and I’ll miss his contributions to the Shed. For those of you who are able to make it to his memorial - raise a glass to him on my behalf.

Ah fuck … that is very sad news. :(

Never met him in person, but did speak to him a few times on the phone, helping him sort out his technology issues (of which he had many :) ).

Poured some whiskyout for him last night

Jim was a Gentleman of the old school, and could hold his own with the best of them. He wasn’t a snob and would have you in stitches with some of his tales, which were in fact just some of his life’s experiences embellished and enhanced as only Liggy could.
He’s one where the bucket of water would have a hole.

A very dryly funny man, who gave a lot to society and to those who needed help.

I’m glad that he was able to see that his old home in the UK was still in good condition, but sad that his old pub was closed.

Vale Jim.


I never met him in person but talked a few times on the phone.

I bought a 4 pack of Elvis Juice IPA. I’ll drink a few tonight.

Man… thats sad. I liked Jim. He lent me some of his tools. I even gave them back. I’ll have a few drinks for him tonight.

I’m a bit sad now.

Thats sad, he was one of the first, and one of the most generous to put his hand in his pocket every year to support my Movember effort.

Never met him, never spoke to him, only ever communicated thru the wonders of a machine that he hated.

The world is now a poorer place without his huge heart beating.

Get fucked Liggy, RIP mate.

That’s well fucked.
Like others my only interactions were through the shed, a bloke I liked with his genuineness, and straight forward manner.

Sorry to hear this. I never knew he was ill
Where is this fire shed and who’s going?

Martins Creek fire shed , which Lig helped save, is about 20 k north of Maitland and i’m going at this stage

Looks like your connection to The Blokey Shed was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
