The State funeral for Tracker Tilmouth will take place at 10am on Thursday, 12 March 2015 at St Mary’s Cathedral in Darwin.
Leigh Bruce “Tracker” Tilmouth 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.
An absolutely fearless man taken too soon.
Here are some select Tracker quotes for the memories.
“Probably the last time she saw a real Aborigine was when she was licking a postage stamp.” Tracker on Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
