American, 61, Commits Suicide In Phuket


Recommended Posts

CHALONG, PHUKET: Friends and family are this week morning the loss of Thomas and Parnpan Quigly, otherwise known as ‘Uncle Tom’ and ‘Auntie Porn’, who ran the island’s first fish and chip shop on the road to Chalong Pier.


Mr Quigly, a 61-year-old American, was found dead of a .22 caliber gunshot wound to the head inside the couple’s home on Tuesday morning.


Police are treating Mr Quigly’s death as a case of suicide, Chalong Police Col Chana Sudtimas told the Gazette.


A week earlier, his wife Parnpan Quigly, 59, had died unexpectedly of a stroke.


In the days following his wife’s death, Mr Quigly was preparing his repatriation to be with the couple’s only son Patrick, a 29 year-old student in the US.


Neighbors said that the night before Mr Quigly’s death they had all had dinner together with Patrick, who had recently flown in to attend his mother’s funeral.


“We talked about the old days and Tom seemed okay, but I know he was sad to leave Thailand and didn’t want his son to worry about him,” said Mrs Yao, a close friend of the family.


“They will be sorely missed, they were two sweet souls and everyone loved them,” said Mrs Yao.

Yeah I read about this, very sad. The couple had a 29 year old son, so were obviously together for a hell of a long time. I guess they had something very special.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
