How bizarre. Very sad, I loved his show and the work he did. Seemed like a good guy.

My thoughts are with his family and friends

What shame , died doing what he loved


Mr Irwin

Here is to you as good as you are
And here is to me as bad as I am
As good as you are and as bad as I am
I'm as good as you are as bad as I am

Died with his boots on.

Will be greatly missed.

RIP Steve.

A great guy.

It's really sad particularly for his kids. It's quite a shock he always seemed like the guy who did crazy stuff and managed to get out of it unscathed. At least he died doing what he loved for who he loved.

He was an original. God bless him and his family. They will have a repeat of a 2004 interview on Larry King tonight.--the dog

Very very sad for his wife and two young kids - but I guess he might have chosen to go doing what he did best! Go with God, Steve - you gave a lot of joy to many people!

I'm shocked and saddened by this news.

Steve Irwin seemed to really love life, and that enthusiasm came across the screen.

According to the news report I read, his wife was trekking in Tasmania at the time. They must be two of a kind.

RIP, Mr. Irwin.

I had a hard time sleeping last night, so at about 4:30 this morning I turned on the TV just as the news was announcing his death. Such a shame. A wife, two kids, and he was only 44 years old. That's way too young. As one newscaster said, though, "At least he died doing what he loved to do".

It's a shame, so young & having little kids. I feel for his family. Steve really seemed like a nice guy, and I'm sure he will be missed by alot of people.

Yeah, I'm really sad, and my wife was just stunned. We really liked the guy. He did a lot of great work for animal conservation that people tend to overlook when they focus on his stunts. As for the stunts, they were better planned and less risky than they often looked. My sympathies to his wife and children. He'll sure be missed. Nobody can take his place.

Very sad news...Can't believe it happened. Reminds me of when Peter Jennings died, just a sad day for the world.

That about sums it up.

He and his family both knew the risk.

Hats off for the good run, mate! 8)
