Steve Irwin, the famed Aussie known as the “Crocodile Hunter”, died today off the coast of Australia due to what appears to have been a Stingray barb through the chest.
Duncan has the story:
I’€™m sure I’€™ll be joining many Australian’€™s today in sending my heartfelt condolences to his family. For all his annoying attributes, Steve Irwn was a trooper, a man who stood by his convictions and truly built a name for him. He may not have been perfect, but he will be remembered as a man others can only aspire to be, for in his celebrity he continued to remain a true Australian, one who remained humble despite the trappings of fame, and remained loyal to our nation.
In the end, it’s about remaining true to who you are.. Steve Irwin never lost sight of that.
