Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter, has been killed by a stingray while filming a documentary near Port Douglas. He leaves behind wife Terri and their children, eight-year-old daughter Bindi and two-year-old son Bob.
AlphaMikeFoxtrot: “I was posted to Brisbane when Steve took over the family crocodile farm at Beerwah - well before he was famous and on TV. We used to take all our visitors from interstate to see him perform. He was just the same back then so you really did see the genuine article on TV.
“Living in North America for the last two years I was amazed at how well known and loved he was there. Very sad news. Thanks for the memories mate!”
Mr Snuffalupagus: “My brother in law lives just down the road from Steve and said that he was a lovely bloke in real life. He was just a sincere, nice guy. Just thought that some of your readers might like to know that.”
