kroooz-cams and Jeff Vagt
« on: March 04, 2019, 04:45:50 PM »
Hi all,

This morning I received an email from an old friend of those on here and elsewhere Wolfgang.


The email said this:

Quote
Wolfgang – you may have been notified but, if not, Jeff Vagt apparently fell backward down his
stairway and broke his head open; he was in an induced coma for a few days but was beyond saving
and died February 10. We were all very saddened by his passing.
 

I can not tell you how much this has shocked me.

Jeff was a pioneer in webcams for viewing ships in different ports. He even paid to have a few cams placed in some ports such as Athens.

Jeff and I met many years ago with a old friend of the old Krooze Cam fourms in San Diego and had dinner.

We talked about kroooze Cam and Seacruise and exchanging links. I made him an offer that if he ever wanted to sell to keep us in mind.

We have not talked in recent years and recently thought of dropping him a note to see how he was.

Phil

This is a huge shock. He was such a vibrant person and much too young for this to happen to him.
I'm glad to have known him and learned a lot from him.
We had dinner together in New York once and again at my house when his cruise stopped in Boston.
First Liz, then Phyllis, now Jeff :'(  :'(  :'(

I met him with Liz and Phil in San Diego before Liz & I set off for Rome on Oosterdam.  He actually picked me up at the airport.  Took us sightseeing in San Diego.  Sad that he sold the Kroooz forums elsewhere.  They changed hands another time or two and have pretty much died.  CJ

CJ,

When I made the post about having dinner I could not remember Liz's name nor who the other person was which was you.

What I do remember was getting a bill from the hotel for $250 for the cleaning of the hotel room due to cigarette smoke in my room from Liz and Jeff smoking. I did manage to get it quashed but it took some time. 

Thanks for helping me remember.

Phil
