A Warrnambool man - who was as humble as he was kind - would be chuffed to know his family received condolence messages from three AFL legends following his passing.
Terry Morrissey, 75, died last week due to heart failure.
He was very well-known, a fact his wife of 50 years Gaye and his children David, Alison Lane and Paul could attest to.
"We would go away and he would go missing because he would be chatting to someone," Mrs Morrissey said.
"We called him Mr Have a Chat."
There weren't many people in the south-west Mr Morrissey didn't know and he never forgot a name.
He was a familiar, friendly face at De Grandi's Sportsgoods in Warrnambool, where he worked for more than 30 years.
Mr Morrissey was also involved with the Bushfield football club, which later became Northern Districts and eventually the North Warrnambool Eagles.
He loved family and fishing and was humble about his achievements on the football field.
Mr Morrissey, a one-eyed Tigers fan, played five senior games for Richmond in 1964.
He kicked two goals and earnt himself a nomination for rookie of the year.
However, city life was not for Mr Morrissey.
"He was a country boy," Mrs Morrissey said. "He hated living in the city."
Mr Morrissey, who was born in Warrnambool, played for a number of local clubs including South Warrnambool, Yambuk, Port Fairy and Merrivale.
He also coached South Purrumbete to a grand final.
Mr Morrissey was a proud pa to seven grandchildren.
He loved to have a beer before suffering a heart attack five years ago and would do anything for anyone.
His daughter Alison will miss his non-judgemental nature.
"I'll miss his unconditional love," Mrs Lane said.
Former Richmond star Matthew Richardson sent a video message to Mr Morrissey's family following his death.
"On behalf of myself and the Richmond Football Club I just want to pass on my condolences to Gaye and the whole Morrissey family on the passing of Terry," Richardson said.
"I know it's been a tough time for everyone during isolation, particularly for those who have lost a loved one. "I hope you can celebrate his life."
Full-forward Jack Riewoldt and dual-premiership captain Trent Cotchin also sent their regards.
"Our sincerest condolences to you guys for the loss of one of our past players in Terry," Cotchin said.
"We're thinking about you."
