About the Steve Irwin Memorial
The Steve Irwin Memorial was created on the shortly after the death of Steve Irwin on the 4th of September 2006 for the purpose of showing Steve and his family the worlds support and passion that he so greatly showed himself for wildlife. The memorial has been published in newspapers, broadcast on radio stations, and has appeared on CNN's 'The Situation Room' a phone interviewe on the 5th of September.
The webmaster, Richard Powell, is an eager fan of Steve Irwin after growing up with Steve's influence through watching the enthusiastic conservationist Steve Irwin on TV. Steve wasn't just a TV personality though - he did make good TV shows, but there was something more at work. Steve was a great human being for his kind nature, enthusiasm, and passion for preserving the world's wildlife habitat. He helped people forget about politics, terrorism, war, and corruption - he took people on his adventures around the world and showed us what really is out there. For that many of us are deeply thankful to Steve and devastated that the world has lost such a rare and wonderful person.
I think it is time to give back that passion and show him and his family how much the world supported and loved him.
When did you create the Steve Irwin Online Memorial?
As soon as I heard the news. I saw it as an opportunity to create (a.) a place for everyone to come together and show their condolences and support for Steve's family, (b.) a place to show Steve the same passion he did, (c.) and so Steve Irwin fans and Mourners alike can join together and form a community.
