Sad news -- David Kerridge

Post by travelerjim1 »

A truly great friend of the Thai gay community for decades has passed away in his UK home.

A leader of so many charity efforts in Pattaya including being one of the Founders of Thais for Life... And entertaining thousands with his stage talents and caring for the needy and support of the efforts of Dr Philippe saving lives of those with HIV.

Sad news -- David Kerridge

Post by Bangkokian »

A friend in Pattaya has just posted this---

It is with deepest sadness that we have to say goodbye to my lovely David Kerridge. He sadly passed away last night after a long and noble fight against Cancer. He was a true friend to many of us both here in the UK and also to his many friends in Thailand where he enjoyed many holidays and eventually lived a long and full life in his adopted home.
Goodbye my friend. The last 20 years have been a blast. I’m sure you’ll be keeping them laughing in heaven.

I did not know him, but I am sorry he is gone. From your posts I know I missed a chance to know a very good man.

David is part of a dying breed of pioneers that began the gay scene in Pattaya. I first met him when he had the beer bar La Cage just outside Sunee next to the White Knight restaurant. He was a wonderful host and a really good guy R.I.P.

Peter Wall, partner of David in Oscar's bar, posted this:

Peter Wall
·"Many of David’s friends have asked me about funeral arrangements and flowers etc.
He planned this many weeks ago and it will be a ‘simplistic’ funeral. There will be no family and friends in attendance.
David will be cremated at 8.30am UK time on Friday 15th October and perhaps we can all take a few moments to reflect on the life of our dear friend. "
