(CHRON) — A Houston man killed this weekend by a great white shark in Australia was doing what he enjoyed most – fishing and diving – at the time of the brutal attack, his father said.

George Thomas Wainwright, 32, suffered fatal injuries Saturday when he was bitten by a 10-foot great white during a solo dive off the coast of Rottnest Island near Perth, Western Australia.

The avid outdoorsman and Texas A&M graduate was a marine systems engineer involved with capping the Macondo well after last year’s BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
