So terribly sad. My thoughts are with his family and friends outside WGT.
Deef became a great friend to me in my early days at AAA, passing on his tips and knowledge of the game.
He had told me of his issues, but not once did he complain about it. Only thing that worried him was that being in hospital so much took away too much of his fishing time.
A true blue, fair dinkum bloke if there ever was one. Called it as he saw it, no beating around the bush. The Aussie way.
You will be missed mate, but your name and memory will live on in AAA where you were a mate and mentor to many.
Tight lines mate.
