Dancing community rocked by passing
THE Bendigo dance community will remember Sean Walsh as genuine and funny man, who got dancers to say 'fuzzy pickles' when taking their photos.
Mr Walsh and his wife Bridget were killed when their all terrain vehicle rolled at their rural property on Walsh-Arnold Road in Culgoa at the weekend.
The Marong couple were found on Monday and police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.
CV Dance Studio owner Sharon Allan said Mr Walsh was heavily involved with the Bendigo Dance Eisteddfod and was a member of the committee.
"He would take all the photos for all the kids," she said.
"He was the funniest guy, so genuinely interested in everything, he loved the kids."
Ms Allan said the news of Mr Walsh and his wife Bridget's death had "rocked the Bendigo dance community".
"Everyone was crying last night, all the kids and even all the parents," she said.
"You can ask anyone and they will say what a great bloke he was.
"I only meet his wife Bridget a few times but she was lovely, they were the perfect couple."
CV Dance Studio teacher Lisa Kearin said she had developed a strong friendship with Mr Walsh over the years.
She said he used to tease her for buying all of the photos he took of her kids.
"I used to go into his studio and buy every photo he took of my children," she said.
"He would say, 'are you always going to buy every photo I take?'.
CMS Dance Worx owner Carlie Sutton said she was shocked to hear about the passing of Mr Walsh.
"He must of really left an impact on the students because they were very distraught with the news," she said.
Ms Sutton said Mr Walsh got the best of the her students.
"I will always remember how happy he was and how he was always smiling," she said.
"The kids loved him.
"He will be dearly missed."
