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.

I've been asked by a non-member to add a couple more names....

- Brian Roggensack

- 3 un-named ladies who worked at the Domino Bar...???

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

Fred Knipe

Arthur Lupson

Auntie Vi (Violet McFie) and her siblings, Uncle Angus, et all.

Jeremy Dootson, such a sudden and tragic passing

Tony Knowles

Oliver Johnson (had to add him, he was my friend when I was 5 who drowned at a pool party I attended)

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.

And another contribution from a friend of mine.......

"And we can't go much further without paying respects to dear, departed, diminutive

Dr Frank Kelly from Australia, the genial former convenor of the Informal Northern

Thai Group who had previously written speeches for Pierre Trudeau in Canada.

Frank, who passed away quietly here after battling cancer for almost a year, had

finished an authorative book on expat life styles. He had lived and worked in 14

expat communities. The book was never published and now seems to have been

forgotten. Shame as it looked very promising. Can anyone shed any light on it..?"

Time really does fly doesn't it. I wouldn't have thought that it was anything like five years sine Anne's departure.

Speaking of departed alchoholics, British Peter (Deng's partner) who ran one of the the original bars on Loi Kroh. I remember Deng when he was a bartender at the old Karen Hut. Deng also worked at the old Cottage for Keow, who was rumored to have been involved in the disappearance of an American down and out alcholic whose name I can no longer remember (Roy maybe) but whose disappearance caused little concern to the US Consulate at the time.
