I was only seven years old when I met Dale through my father Greg Kerr who was working on a PhD under Mike Bull. Dale always had time for me and my two younger brothers. He would always share stories and jokes with us and answer all of our questions. He used to come over for dinner regularly from 1999 until at least 2005. I was always really happy to see him. My brothers and I used to get days off school during primary school to drive up to "the Lizards" (Bunds Bore station) in Dale's old car that he lent my Dad. We used to stop off for treats from the Eudunda bakery and spend hours wandering through the salt bush looking for sleepy lizards. We were always impressed with Dale's number plate collection!
I haven't seen Dale in years since I grew up and moved away but I wish I had been able to see him again. I would have come to his funeral had I known. He was a really lovely guy.

Dale was a wonderful person, full of adventure and interesting too. I met him back in 2004 through our mutual love of the TV show, Bounty Hamster. He was a big fan of the main character, Cassie, who hired the hamster, Marion to help her find her father. In 2005 Dale came to stay with me and my family for two weeks and we went to lots of interesting places such as Exmoor and Dunster Castle. We also visited Chambercombe Manor, one of the most haunted places in the area and he enjoyed all of it. I remember he loved the special edition flavor of Jaffa Cakes we had at the time and took some back to Australia with him! Over the years we kept in touch via email and Christmas cards and he would sometimes ask us to record TV shows he couldn't get and send them to him. Likewise he did the same for us. He was such a kind and helpful soul. We will all miss him; he was taken from the world too soon. Rest in peace my friend.

  • Ms Wendy Hayward: The beginning of the legend! It spread to the field. (Now Dr) Aaron is known as Bounty Hampster and Cassie lizards roam there to this day. I have a t-shirt that matches yours in the other photo. Thank you Lara
