Tributes are flowing following the death of the patriarch of the Daniher family.
James 'Jim' Daniher died in a farm accident on his Ungarie property on Friday evening.
A farmer right until the very end, he was 90 years old.
Daniher is survived by wife Edna and their 11 children.
The Daniher name is synonymous in the region and the wider sporting community for the exploits of his four sons.
Neale, Anthony, Chris and Terry created history by all playing with Essendon in the same game in 1990.
Between them the four brothers played 752 VFL/AFL games.
Neale paid tribute to his father.
"He was a farmer right until the very end. Died working with his boots on," he said.
"Learnt so much from Dad, not so much by what he said but what he did. His legacy will live on strong through his wife, Edna, their 11 children and families. Love you forever."
Two of his grandsons, current Bombers star Joe and former Essendon player Darcy, have also played in the AFL.
But it wasn't just his sons who were great sportsmen but the seven Daniher daughters as well.
Now their children are carrying on the legacy on sporting fields across the Riverina.
Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack labelled him a marvellous man.
"He was a great bloke, Jim," McCormack said.
"He made sure the four boys were all very grounded, even though they achieved so much greatness on the footy field.
"He still stayed grounded, stayed true to family values and traditional values.
"He was all things Ungarie and my heart goes out to all the Daniher family."
Essendon Football Club also expressed its deepest condolences to the Daniher family.
