Good grief !!!
I went to Mojo's a few weeks ago & was told that Steve had been taken off to hospital that day....
I certainly hope this is not as serious as it sounds - he has not been blessed with the best of luck while he has been in Udon has he?????

Didn't know Steve personally but may he RIP.

Just got off the phone with a freind in Udon. He tells me it was a pull your own gun out and hold it to your head job. Very sad if that was the case.

I can't verify accuracy but he knows someone across the road and thats the story he got.

I can confirm Steve took his own life and believe he had been diagnosed as terminally ill.

RIP Steve

very sad, as his health wasn't very good. have plenty of extra V's, just in case mine goes downhill, a better way to go.

a terrible loss to udon, RIP.

I did not know him, but RIP for him.

I respect going out on your own terms though. Might be how I go too, time will tell.

LA, what do you mean "V's" ?

Poor guy, may he rest in peace.

One hopes that if he has a family, they are well taken care of in the future.

That was my first idea for 'V's' Yeah, I am with you on that, just fall asleep.

Besides condolences for family he left behind, my only real comment is that I respect his wishes to leave this life on his own terms.

His health for 3 or more years had been bad, do not know if he suffered a terminal diease, however his constant stays in a hospital were a drain on resources.
It is ad that the way he decided to end his life was so violent.
however it was his choice, a loss to his wife and her family as well as his family in England.
Rest in peace steve, you do deserve it. Paul

I just received this so the timing is close. The ceremony will be Wat Ban Khao San, I am not clear about the directions beyond that the temple is on the road to Ban Thad, pass Ban Thad continue past the Post Office and make a U-turn to the temple. The ceremony is slated to be at 1330 and the burn at 1500 today, the 21st. Sorry, I have no further on the directions.
