Terrible news. I worked with Darryl for over two years at his fathers company. As Steve says, he was an exceptional climber, with an eye for detail and very conscientious about the job. He'll be sorely missed - tragic loss.

Daryl Platton 1990-09-04 – 2012-03-30

 

On the 30th of March 2012 at around twelve thirty we forever lost our friend and colleague Daryl Platton. He was driving to a job, as we all do everyday, when he was involved in a fatal car accident.

 

He had only been in Sweden for two of his twenty-one years, but in that small space of time he made a big impression on us all. His love, enthusiasm, and skill for his work were an inspiration to all of us. His liking for lifting heavy objects springs to mind. He must have been taught well and been a great student because we received a well-rounded professional arborist skilled beyond his years.

 

Daryl was a kind and gentle soul, short on words, big in heart (and muscles). We choose not to think of the over-bearing tragedy of his death, but rather remember his life. His ever-present goofy smile made us all smile, and kept us smiling.

 

Daryl moved to Sweden to kick-start his adventure through adult life. The profound effect he had on us in such a short space of time…, one can only imagine what he could have and would have gone on to do. But all our hard work, achievements, and accomplishments shall forever be shared with him. We all owe him so much.

 

Daryl was one of those people that you meet in life who had such an uplifting influence on so many. He will be sadly missed by all of those who knew him.

 

Our hearts and thoughts go out to his family and friends.

Daryl's Tree

 

Near the end of October, 2012, as a mark of respect for our lost friend, we got together and planted a tree. We chose to plant his favourite tree, a copper beech (Fagus sylvatica 'Purpurea') in a beautiful field in Hagaparken, Stockholm.

I found this on the company's website Daryl was working for.

Thought it might be of interest to people who knew him.
