In Memoriam

Randall A. Daggs (1947-2018)

We extend our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Randall A. Daggs, who passed away on August 5, 2018. Mr. Daggs received his degree in Microbiology and Public Health in 1971 from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and began his career as a Clinical Bacteriologist. From 1978 until 1982, he directed the milk laboratory evaluation program for the State of Wisconsin. He later became administrator of the Grade A milk program in Wisconsin, and worked in that capacity until his retirement in 2002. 

Mr. Daggs was a long-time International Association for Food Protection (IAFP) member, joining in 1983.  Mr. Daggs was recognized for his accomplishments with the 2009 President’s Recognition Award, 2003 Honorary Life Membership Award, and the 1997 Sanitarian Award.

More recently, Randy served as Wisconsin Lab Association Executive Director and in that role he provided continuity during transitions between association presidents.  Aside from all things dairy, Randy’s passions were astronomy & photography. He will be best remembered for his dedication to the safety of dairy products, his wit, self-deprecating humor, leadership, and service.
