I see where AA is coming from but I also think the legacy the childs father leaves behind and the videos and movies are much more then many of us will ever have to remember our lost loved ones.

As for a dangerous profession I think that many of us choose dangerous professions and survive. Look at crab fisherman, extreme athletes, police officers in Camden New Jersey.

Its really not his fault for doing what he loved. The child may need therapy growing up but then again don't we all.

The accident was a freak accident. And he was a bit eccentric but I don't see him as careless. he knows exactly what he was doing.

Anyways I won't call him a great man or a legend but he seemed to be a good man and entertaining and he died doing what he loved.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I also read that he is only 17th person in recorded history to die of a stingray attack, in addition to only the 3rd Australian. He didn't die provoking or filming the animal, but rather it was an accident. Perhaps I could understand the argument if he died wrestling a crocodile, but he didn't... he knew the risks involved in that and seemed to knowledgeable enough to take the right precautions. This was a freak accident.

Yeah I actually wrote the Wikipedia article too.


Kidding. :-D

No worries dude, I only heard it from someone so my source is far less credible than yours. I'd believe it though.

Irwin’s eight-year-old daughter Bindi delivered the most heartfelt message of the hour-long memorial, describing her father as the best in the world

A public memorial was held for Australia’s famous TV personality Steve Irwin in Australia Wednesday international celebrities, family friends and colleagues in attendance.

Irwin’s eight-year-old daughter Bindi delivered the most heartfelt message of the hour-long memorial, describing her father as the best in the world, Australian Broadcasting Corporation radio reported.

“My daddy was my hero. He was always there for me when I needed him,” she said.
“He listened to me and he taught me so many things. But most of all he was fun,” she said.

“I know that daddy had an important job. He was working to change the world so that everybody would love wildlife like he did, ” she said, vowing to carry on her father’s legacy.

Thousands of people came to the Australia Zoo on the state of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast to pay homage to Irwin, known as the Crocodile Hunter, the name of a world-famous TV series he made about wildlife.

Irwin died after being attacked by a stingray while diving off Port Douglas in order to film a documentary on Sept. 4.

Australian Prime Minister John Howard offered the nation’s sympathies to the Irwin family while addressing the memorial.

“My fellow Australians, we gather in this special place that Steve created to celebrate the life of a remarkable man and remarkable Australian,” he said.

“There are 20 million pairs of Australian arms reaching out to embrace you (the family) this morning,” he said.
The event began and ended with videotaped messages from friend, Hollywood star Russell Crowe, speaking from New York.

I didn't see it last night, but a girl in the office did and said it was very moving.
