    This is such shocking news. I worked with Vaughan for 8 years in the days before he returned to PE to get back to his beloved waves. A true gentleman to the core. Malcolm Jones can you click thru to my FaceBook and private message me a phone number for Jill and the kids?

    Fondly remembered working with him, Cliff and Kitty in Mafikeng — a really decent guy who checked out way too soon. Sorry to hear this. Condolences to the family. I know his recent friends will miss him most.
