Something Blinky Bill said triggered a thought in my mind about all the drinking mates that I have known and remember since being in Chiang Mai, specifically those who have passed on

I would like to start a list of those I remember here in Chiang Mai and would like all other local members to chip in and add the names they remember. Just add them onto the list and in this way maybe all of us together or by ourselves can have a drink and say salute, salude, old buddy, I remember and miss you.

Here is the start of the list I would like to remember, add to it if you like and see how many we can remember.

Salute Good Buddies :o

Skipper

Andy the Scot

J. B. Gross

Jeremy

Roger Morton

Allister the Scot

Jack Wall

Rick Cherry [ Dr. Lic ]

Crickett ........ way before her time

add on guys and gals

:D

Bloody hel_l UG, that was Martin West and he was a very good friend. I feel ashamed that I forgot him.

David, his brother is in China these days.

Nick (Smiling Monkey)

When did this occur ?

I saw someone last Songkran who was in close contact with Nick and his wife (Gino's ex-wife) in Britain. Apparently Nick went in for a hernia operation or something and didn't survive. That's all I know. Big shock to everyone. He and his wife were running a successful pub; I believe she plans to carry on.

There was a Dutch guy named Gerald who sold wholesale Hill Tribe Coffee.

He was the first - and one of very few - farang that died from AIDs.

Snowflake.

Wally Buddy.

I see only 2 ladies, Cricket and Snowflake mentioned.

These 2 Thai ladies were both real characters married to expats.

Surely there have been some western women pass away here over the years.

And another one from the 'old guard' at Gymkhana Club...

Donald Gibson

I also wasn't aware about Nick 'Smiling Monkey'....??

and I wasn't aware re Brian R..... any specifics there as to how where when etc..... He wasn't that old. Yea big phone Brian, Top North Charlie's RH Man... at least for a while.

Boy this is turning out to be a shocking update type of thread

Re the 3 unnamed Dominos girls.... unnamed because of not wanting names mentioned or not named because cannot remember ?

Does anybody know what happened to the Mexican guy who worked as a driver/gopher at the Top North Guest House for many years for Thai wages - Danny? He was married to Charlie's sister and claimed to be American, but was making something like 2,000 baht per month so I always had my doubts.

He finally just vanished... :o

Thanks for remembering Fred Knipe Pim. We used to play golf together weekly (for me weakly) in the early 90's. Love his ex, A also.

How strange..? I was just thinking about both Fred Knipe, and Tony Knowles today, and had no idea that either had passed away..? Enjoyed many rounds of golf with the former, and many beers and interesting chats, with the latter. And the list goes on......? All are fondly remembered.
