Along with thousands of Parramatta supporters, and countless Eels players and staff, the Cumberland Throw was deeply saddened by the passing of Denis Anderson. We extend our sympathies to Denis’ family, loved ones and close friends.
The club and the media have rightly paid tribute to Denis. Even so, how do you find the right words to describe the lifetime dedication he made to the Eels?
I got to know Big D at Junior Rep matches and at Parramatta Eels training. Denis didn’t mince his words. He spoke with passion about his club and you knew exactly how he felt about his team, his boys, and with the introduction of the Tarsha Gale competition, his girls.
It’s also fair to say that few stories could compare to a Big D recollection.
Back in January of 2018, Denis sat down with TCT to talk about his decades with the club.
What better tribute could we pay than to again share this with you? It’s Denis Anderson, in his own words.
Rest In Peace legend.
