Police were called to the address about 6.45pm. There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the sudden death, reports Courier Mail.

  • I remember these 2, very popular contestants. I wonder if the dad was a farmer? Unfortunately with the way farming is heading, there’s quite a few suicides by farmers


  • How awful! I love the boys they were so inspiring and full of spirit- they must miss him terribly!


  • How terribly sad for everyone in their family.


  • Very sad to hear about the loss of the boys father.


  • oh how upsetting for the family. I hope the police and family can come to some conclusion as to why and how

    May he rest in peace


  • Really liked these boys on House Rules, so sorry for their loss.


  • Oh! That’s terrible. I hope we will hear more news about what was behind.


  • Such very sad news for this family. My condolences.


  • oh no how horrible for all that loved him


  • Tragically another life lost, presumably to suicide. Hopefully his sons know the reason for their Dad’s demise. My sympathy to the boys and other family members
