RIP Khun Sanuk


Recommended Posts

I wish I could be there, last time I met Marcel was when we ran into each other on the Sukhumvit-flyover somewhere close to the Sofitel when he was on the way to work. Can´t remember, probably a year ago, maybe more. Not easy to realise somebody just does not exist any more. My thoughts are with his family.

Yes I wish I could attend also, for a small synchronicity, MLG and I will be at a local Lao temple offering a Tak Bat. A white string will wend its way to Bangkok.

I’m on my 4th round of Covid…but we will go to the local temple here in San Francisco and send a few thoughts his way. 

2 Things about Marcel, he always said “I’m Dutch, I don’t have a sense of humor” and 2, he always found me incredibly funny. So take that as you will. I am torn between saying something heart felt vs something funny but neither one will do justice to a man like Marcel. It was because of him that I became friends with LazyPhil and Chocolate Steve, which lead to free accommodation in L.A. and Cambridge UK. Other great friends like Cent, lead to free food and drinks, Tommie an odd out beer here and there so yeah, it adds up,They say you can’t put a price on friendship, but if you could, he’s saved me a small bundle.  He will be missed and when ever I pass the Jelly beans at Costco, I’ll give him a wink.

Disagree

He had a sense of humor however probably one of the driest you would ever encounter 😉

I used to enjoy reading his comments or responses to difficult or provocative posts. Some of the :stirthepo and squabbles and how he handled it IMHO was entertaining.

Like BB, It was probably 2000 or 2001 when I met the great man, amongst other great names back at Woodstock and later Gullibles.  What a nice bloke - only the good die young right. I thought he was younger than me (he certainly looked it!) - thought with the family and all that stuff, hope they are doing ok. A true gent, on and off the board. RIP
