One punch and a life ends

Bruce Steensen was a loveable larrikin who would do anything for anyone.

On February 21, his generous nature cost him his life.

Brisbane 53-year-old was walking along the Mooloolaba Esplanade about midnight, savouring the clean crisp Sunshine Coast air, laughing with a mate and looking forward to hitting the golfing greens the next day.

An argument between a young man and a taxi driver caught his attention.

“Let it go mate,” he told the young man.

Seconds later he was lying on the footpath. The next day his life support was turned off.
