RIP Mr. Hat

I am currently trying to get the latest information re Gordon
He was a great guy.
Yesterday I went to view again his 'obelisk', a project that kept Gordon and his co workers occupied for many months
Rest in Peace Gordon

I understand that his Thai girlfriend has been in touch with the British Embassy and local police and will await the date for the burning of his body.
I shall miss him
RIP Gordon

Just to let everyone concerned know I just got back from Gordon's Funeral today.
Did not find out about it until this morning and it took a long time to find the location so could not post any details.

Basically it was a Paupers funeral as his brother and son thought it was a scam to get money from them when informed about his death by a good friend of his.

They refused to send money directly to his wife/girlfriend.

Gordon did not keep much in the way of funds in a Thailand bank which I personally know.
So his wife/girlfriend soon ran out of money paying the hospital fees etc.

His Brother paid the British Embassy a fee and they in turn appointed a Rescue foundation to supervise the Funeral.
He had been kept frozen for 6 weeks and was still partially frozen when we placed the flowers on him in the casket

It really was not a dignified way to be sent off but I assume Gordon was not worried about it knowing him like I remember him.

Finally RIP Gordon.

How terribly sad, even if he wouldn't care it's awful to hear that one of ours has gone like that and well done you Pal52 for making the effort. Surely we as a community could have done something even if it was chip in a few bob for some food and drink, I would definitely have donated towards it, I didn't know the gentleman but R.I.P. Gordon.

I'm quite angry about all this after knowing Gordon for many years as a customer at my restaurant. I only became aware of his death through dezzer111 posting on Udon Map. Following his death I asked my Lek a good many times, what was happening but nothing useful came to light apart from the BE were dealing with it. Having heard nothing I had assumed by now that his body would have been burnt in the traditional way.

It would have kind if his other half had kept us in the loop. His step-son used to deliver Gordon to us and later in the day collect him in the car, which I understood to have been paid for by Gordon. So his wife and son knew where to find us but failed to keep in touch. How very sad and certainly not the first time this sort of thing has happened.

Following his motorbike accident and a stroke, he managed to find some inner strength to keep going and I admired him for that. Hi legacy is the obelisk which next time I'm back in Udon I will go to see. Perhaps a plate with his name could be affixed but that would, in part, be up to Steven and Dim in whose garden it stands.

Gone but not forgotten, at least by the expat community.
Mr Hat, a gentleman, may you rest in peace

it is sad . in amongst the bickering, sniping, general dislike we share for each other, it's easy to forget there are medical emergencies, major life events, often " good mates" few as they may be, are the only ones to standup on your behalf

What a strange statement ? ,' bikkering,sniping dislike we share with each other' . a lot of those you think have a dislike of each other meet up at mine on a very regular basis. They're grown up chaps that like discussion. None of them seem to have issues . no bickering , no issues. So what planet are you from ?. 3-4 of them turned up for lunch , its not some kind of contest .i'm right and your wrong . that simply does not exist. Oh forgot is does in your mind.
But anyway I only met Gordon a couple of times. God bless him .sweet dreams as my old man would say .

Agree PF, there are some we may not like but illness and death joins us all together in bidding farewell. I am sure I mewt Gordson on numerous occasions including at the Pillar building site. RIP Gordon another local missed as we do seem to have co-ordinated place to record deaths of our expats with photos as many we meet but faces we remember but names not so much

The less intellectual among us don't understand debate/banter and let's face it mech fits the bill perfectly.

Wonder if it would be possible to create a Udonmap wall of remembrance ?

Just a simple thread with ex members name and a single photo..

I really have lost count the number of people who have passed on where its not till the 8th or 9th post that someone says something that makes me realise who is being talked about ........ most of the time I only know someone by a first name or nickname.

If it were possible to have a dedicated remembrance thread it would allow for their memory to continue long after their posts have run their course
