Leigh Bruce “Tracker” Tilmouth, 62, passed away in Darwin this weekend. There will be no shortage of  comments by others about Tracker in the coming days and weeks, but I reckon that his own words will ring louder and longer than those of others.

Tracker had that rare ability to have you roaring with laughter with him -- or in anger at him -- in equal measure within the same conversation. I saw Tracker last week and, as always, we shared a laugh and a joke.
