Passing of Erwin Faber

Post by FrazeeDK » May 8, 2024, 7:16 pm

Long time resident Erwin Faber passed away a few days ago at the age of 86. His funeral was in Wat Photivararam at noontime today. Erwin had "Erwin Bungalows" back in the late 90's down beside Wat Pho behind the Paradise Hotel. In its day, not a bad place at all. He later opened a bar on Soi Samphan which I believe today is the Pfalz.

RIP Erwin..

I was somewhat saddened to learn of the passing of Erwin.

His Bungalows, situated on the narrow road running along the rear of AEK Udon Hospital were well established and operated, for a good many years, possibly as far back as the 1980s, with some efficiency by Erwin and his wife.

However, at some point, he opened his Café/Bar/Motorbike rental business on Soi Sampan and may, at that time, parted with his Bungalows. Erwin and I were on a sort of “friendly nodding acquaintance” and were never quite sure whether he spoke English. However, no matter, he was one of the more colorful characters that made Udon interesting, and as said, sorry that he has gone.

I would be interested to know whether the Bungalows are still available, possibly owned/managed by his wife.

RIP Erwin
