Shane Warne mentor Terry Jenner dies
Wednesday 25 May 2011
Former Australia spinner Terry Jenner, more widely known as Shane Warne's leg-spin mentor, has died in Adelaide at the age of 66.
A little over a year after suffering a heart attack, Jenner died "peacefully" at his home according to a post from his wife Ann on his blog.
"Terry passed away peacefully today just a month-and-a-half after the anniversary of his heart attack," Ann Jenner wrote.
"He wanted to be at home with his family and we were able to share the last few days with him.
"For the past year I have continuously expressed our thanks for all the support we have had and say again we really have appreciated all the care and concern."
Ann Jenner also revealed that her husband's funeral will be at Adelaide Oval and asked for privacy as she and her family mourn their loss.
"At this time we really need to spend time as a family and would appreciate being given that time," she added.
"Many people will miss him and the world will not be the same now he has gone but it many ways it will be a better thing for him."
Jenner played nine Tests and a single one-day international for Australia between 1970 and 1975, capturing 24 wickets in the Test arena, but it was as Warne's go-to man that he will be best remembered.
