Sad news indeed, the loss of another of those who was knowledgeable, helpful and informative - both on the forum and in person.

Stan joined the UM forum in July 2005 and, with over 9,000 posts since then, was the fifth most prolific poster since the launching of UM (v2) earlier that month.

Although living in Nong Khai (for most of the time he was in Thailand) Stan and his dog were frequent attendees at the night market meetings.

While Stan was always a welcome presence at the night market, not everyone was fully appreciative of his dog occasionally walking on the tables (probably the only area where Stan never gave two hoots about the opinions of others).

From his working life and his own experience Stan was well aware of how thoroughly debilitating back problems could be and, through the forum, helped to link members with an experienced doctor who could help alleviate their back problems.

RIP Stan


Ashamed to be English since 23rd June 2016 when England voted for racism (and economic suicide).

Humiliated to have Johnson (a racist, serial liar and hypocrite) as UK Prime Minister.

Rest in Peace Stan. Like many others, we first met at the night market, this one a special holiday party, held late December 2005.
