Taipei Baboons reflect on Indonesia tragedy


Fitz was the smooth-talking teacher, who had been a soccer star in South Africa. Braden was the wacky dresser with the dry sense of humor. Hardman was the surfer who could not stop talking about Australia. And Harty was a family man who had just recovered from the death of his brother and illness of his mother.

“You couldn’t have asked for better mates than these guys,” Boyden said.

“This is what we loved to do with these guys,” Max Murphy said. “That’s what they would have wanted.”
