I got in touch with Robby first time around 4 years ago, back then he wrote to me emails about his birding trips. We later met at Victory Monument in Bangkok to have coffee and talk about national parks and wildlife. We talked passionately about his birding trips, the nice spots he has been to, and all those month long upcoming trips he was planning. That's when he mentioned to me in between that the reason he was in Bangkok that day was that he had cancer in the past, that it was gone and that he needed regular visits to hospital in Bangkok to make sure it wasn't back.

We continued to keep in touch and later met at Kaeng Krachan once or twice which after I advised him that he could post his very valuable trip summaries here at Wildlife Thailand Forum, that others would find it useful. So he did.

During last couple of years, we met few more times in Kaeng Krachan National Park, at Laem Pak Bia, and only 3-4 month ago he and his lovely wife Ying stopped by at our home here at Kaeng Krachan while returning home from a long trip south..

Couple of months ago, my wife Mai informed that that Ying told her that Robby got back cancer for the third time, but this time a more aggressive form. Roughly 3 weeks ago Robby called me, we had a bit of chat over the phone, as usual he was passionately and cheerfully talking about parks and his last trip, he gave me few advice for my next trips around Phetchabun area. I told him on the phone that we would visit him soon, when he said it may be too late we visited him same week at his home in Sing Buri.

Sadly, today, we heard that he passed away, he was 74 years old.  :(

Rest In Peace Robby. We will miss your very valuable trip summaries.

My thoughts are with his family and his loved ones!
