It is with great sadness that I bring to you the news this morning about the passing of our dear friend Khun Somchai.
Over the past few years he has had many guises here on Stickboy Bangkok, from sergeant to sailor, speeding to silly.
A skilled fellow too was our old pal – a Jack of all trades, a master of none.
He was the foreman when working with Team Somchai, the elder of the Somchai brothers and always the goofy guy doing stupid shit at parties.
Many knew Somchai years, if not decades, before me and him met but in the past couple of years I came to love him like a brother. There wasn’t a week that went by without him popping up to show us his latest ideas and antics.
Being so close made the decision to take him out the back last night all the more difficult but it was something that had been coming for months.
Sometimes in life we need to make difficult decisions and for our good friend, his number had been called.
