Peter Ford pays tribute to disability advocate Quentin Kenihan

Actor, writer, entertainer and disability advocate Quentin Kenihan passed away over the weekend, at the age of 43.

Born with osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bone disease), over his lifetime he suffered almost 600 broken bones because of the condition.

Quentin appeared in a documentary with Mike Willesee when he was seven-years-old and endeared himself to the Australian public ever since.

“He was quite extraordinary,” Peter Ford told Ross and John.

“He had boundless energy, his latest project was to get onto the Adelaide City Council.

“This was a bloke who on paper, probably should have died 30 years ago.”

Actor Russell Crowe was one of Quentin’s many friends to pay tribute to him online, describing Quentin as “the bravest bloke I ever met” and said he was devastated by the loss of his “little mate”.
