Vale: 212929 Victor John LAGETTIE – AACC

08 August 1939 – 21 July 2023

With a sad heart I advise that Vic Lagettie passed away yesterday at 1300hrs. Vic was a good mate and a larger-than-life character. He served in Vietnam with 1ALSC 1965-66 as a Sergeant cook and then again with 2RAR in Vietnam in 1970. During his career he also served as WO Caterer in 1RAR.

Vic was an inaugural member of the Down Under Chapter 11 of the 173d Airborne Brigade, US Army. When the Queensland Chapter 23 was formed in 1996 Vic was the inaugural president. His leadership style brought forward a strong social strength and built a camaraderie that remains the foundation of the Queensland Chapter today.

He had been unwell for a while now and talking to his wife, Helen, last night Vic is now at peace. He will be missed by all who knew him, particularly me.

I will advise funeral details when known.

Lest we forget
