Seriously a childhood and Australian superhero.  

A good reminder to live every day like it's your last, and always tell the ones you love how much you reckon they're cunts.

RIP to an Aussie icon. Name me one kid during the 80s and 90s that wasn't Dean Jones when they were at the crease in the driveway.

One of the key figures who changed cricket by blasting boundaries but taking 1s and 2s in between to keep the scoreboard ticking.

As a media personality, you could always rely on Dean to tell you exactly what he thought.

Sad loss...My first cricket memories were watching 1985 world series with the old boy and my brothers.

Loved his battles with big Curtly Ambrose.

I remember watching him at a testimonial match at the WACCA years ago, he was a man mountain and and never forget when he collected the ball near me on the boundary and the power of his throw. 

RIP

Sad news indeed

 Deano had a lot more to offer and has passed on way too soon  . Was exciting to watch at the crease and took on some of the most feared bowlers of the time, as Brock O (edit) mentioned above.

 Yeah a very sad day for cricket and for Australia. That double century in Chennai was one of the finest by an Aussie in my opinion. Spewing and pissing involuntarily and then off to hospital to go on a drip! What a legend!

 

RIP Deano - way too young.

 Yep loved him as a grom, won't forget that day he hit the 140 odd, was the new era of cricket.
