Only in the last feew weeks through researching sites like yours have I come to realize how big he was in the scene. I mentioned this to him on Saturday when I last visited him, as well as a few comments I had seen. He credits the late Larry O’Dea to being one of his best, or as Con put it “Mate, this guy was so good to me back when I first started.” Con is now retired and resides alone in Penrith, NSW with his dog Sammy. He credits Kerry Packer as being a great man for the oppurtunity’s he gave him, enabling him to travel the world doing what he did best – wrestling. Con later went in to Real Estate with his brother John as you may already know. He also tells me that he and “the boys” still ctach up every Christmas, although time is catching up with them all, and a few of the boys have since passed sadly.
