Steve Irwin the Crocodile Hunter, for those that don't know, was one of those iconic characters that definitely left a lasting impression. I LOVED watching him "in action" and of course that Australian accent!!! But Irwin was also a "passionate conservationist and believed in promoting environmentalism by sharing his excitement about the natural world rather than preaching to people". His untimely death was shocking as it was ironic. He died "doing what he loved" and as one of his friends who witnessed the "freak accident" admitted " he always had a feeling he (Irwin) would die in a "weird" way. "It was probably always going to be something weird with Steve . . . it would always be a crazy, silly accident," he said. "And as it turns out that's exactly what it was."
