We have lost a Gold Coast Chess Community king.

It saddens me to announce the passing on Sat Nov 27 of Vaso Dakovic, affectionately known to all as Vaso.

His funeral will be at Somerville Funerals - 11 am, Thursday, Dec 2nd, 129 Nerang Broadbeach Road, Nerang.
The family has invited chess friends to attend.

Vaso participated for many years in Gold Coast Chess events. He organised social chess in Robina Town Centre for the past decade. He was a great character, full of smiles and wit, who always took the time to help out juniors and beginners. He was my sonís first chess coach and a friend. He had been battling cancer for some time but still playing chess when he could at Robina social chess on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Rest In Peace Vaso.
