Like most boys, my father was my hero. I loved spending time with him and thought he was invincible and could do anything. He came from the generation where nothing was too much trouble or too difficult. His big priorities in life were God, family and country.
My Dad enjoyed fishing and from an early age I accompanied him on fishing trips. He still loves fishing. He also enjoyed sport – and in particular cricket. I can still clearly remember when he gave me my first cricket bat – for many boyhood years it was my most prized possession.
He loved adventure and the great outdoors. When I was in my teens he asked our family to join him in his dream to drive from Cape Town to London – and then from London to Bombay – now Mumbai, India – on our way back to Australia. And my, was that an adventure!
My Dad was my biggest fan and greatest role model. He gave me one of the greatest gifts anyone can give another person – he believed in me. This Father’s Day, I’d like to thank and honour my father. But not just my father – happy Father’s Day to all you Dads out there.
