Tribute to a Truly Great Man

While it is necessary to have some clear guidelines to help work out which guys make great mates there are men that are so clearly made of the good stuff that anyone can tell that they are the real deal - or can we?

Steve Irwin was one such man. One of my personal heros, Steve had an abundance of "tells" that showed he was great mate material. Surprisingly, he was not particularly successful with women and it wasn't till he met Terry when he was 28 that he finally got snapped up. So... not good at picking great mates are we? (Steve Irwin is photographed - as he so often was- with his American wife of 14 years,Terri.)

Close friend explains the circumstances of Steve's death Monday, 4 September 2006

John Stainton, good friend and producer of Steve Irwin's Film Company, Best Picture, held a press conference earlier today outlining the circumstances of Steve's untimely death and the events that surrounded it.

A very emotional Mr. Stainton said that he had lost a very dear and close friend.

"Today the world has lost a great wildlife icon, a passionate conservationist and one of the proudest Dad's on the planet. He died doing what he loved best, he left this world in a happy and peaceful state of mind, he would've said 'crocs rule'," he said.

We have lost one of the good ones.
