Daryl’s contribution to the Maccabi organisation, as a superb athlete, teacher,
mentor, role model to his beloved Jackas, and a proud and deserved
Member of the Maccabi Victoria Hall of Fame was unwavering.
His philanthropy and passion for Jewish sport has contributed greatly
to generations of children being able to participate and enjoy the benefits
of lifetime involvement in Jewish sport.
Daryl will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege to know him
and his legacy will never be forgotten.
