Australian Paul (dutchman) who with his wife Nee ran the introduction agency in CM circa 2000-2005 called 'Just Thai Ladies' passed away earlier this year in Australia, aged 56. He went to bed feeling unwell and never woke up. 

I lived in CM for over 20 years and many close friends I met there have now died. Only found out about my good mate Ian (Blinky bill) this year, when in CM for dental work. RIP.

Ian (BB ) was one of the greatest characters It was ever my pleasure to meet and do battle with on this forum.

 

Smashing fella and sorely missed

Hi all,

I heard that Derek Bleakley had passed away.

He used to hang out at the old bell.

Can anyone confirm this sad news?

John

Hi John - is this Derek Bleakley a big guy from Ireland who had lived in Boston for a long time and had a real estate business?

I’d really appreciate an e-mail -

<<<< Email removed, please use PM function to contact >>>>

I hope it’s not one and the same 🤞🏻

Best wishes,

Cathryn

I read that Graeham Monaghan of cricket sizes fame and other cricket interests in Chiang Mai passed away. A true gentleman and sure to be missed. 

Graeham was a top bloke. The man behind Dennis Lilly and the aluminium bat many years ago.

Lee Arlen Thomas died in September; he was the founder and moderator of the local 'Writers Without Borders' group, which, for more than 10 years, gave writers, and poets, a weekly venue to/read/share their work.

 

Thanks, Khun Lee !

Sadly, after over a week in intensive care here in Chiang Mai, one of the Chiang Mai Photographic Group's regular members, Tim Corp, died on Sunday February 9th of an embolism. He had been struggling with his health for the past few months, but attended our last meeting where he told us he was on the mend so this came as a big shock.

 

Tim graduated in 1997 with a degree in Photography and Animation from Columbia College of Chicago (CCC). In his varied incarnations as a contemporary artist, he was involved in the creative visuals industry for many years.  An award winning CG Visual Designer, Tim was honoured with an Emmy, dozens of ITVA’S, a couple as Videographer, an Aegis, a Princeton Art and Science award as well a plethora of random print and design credits. In the last few years he took up photography, and featured in two Chiang Mai Photography Group exhibitions as well as a three-month solo gallery showing at SangDee Galleries for his light projection project, ”FullFrontalProjection”.   A selection of Tim's work can be see on his website: here.

 

Tim's choice of impressive footwear, exciting hairstyles and permanently attached sunglasses ensured he never failed to stand out in a crowd but he will be most remembered by his fellow photographers as a talented artist who brought some exciting and fresh ideas to the CMPG and other creative and arts organisations in the city.  From slide projections on naked models and retro Cosplay movie posters to some amazing light painting collaborations, Tim's work always amazed and amused while his willingness to grab a microphone and speak his mind at our meetings resulted in thoughtful and often entertaining contributions.  He'll be much missed.

 

Tim's funeral was held yesterday and a Remembrance Gathering/Wake will be held at SangDee Gallery on Tuesday February 18th from 8pm

This thread has been around for quite a while now, quite a few years actually, and a thought just popped into my mind.  Do any of our members know of anyone who has posted to this thread, kindly paying respects to a lost friend, that now has themselves gone to their final reward.

Interesting to know if they wrote nicely about someone else only to become a future person in the spotlight.

Anybody got any input?

 

Blinky Bill comes to mind.

Sadly I have posted on this thread dozens of time. All my old mates of the last 30 plus years appear on the previous pages.

You are about the only one left Gonzo 😢
