Johnny Skepper Passes Away
Entrepreneur Johnny Skepper passed away in the UK last week.
He had an extended illness but fought on during the last few years even after being diagnosed with a brain tumor.
For those involved in the Phuket property industry more than a decade ago, Johnny was a familiar face with his start up internet company Asia Marketing.
Well liked, gentle and always just a smile away, he was able to battle the odds after a twist of fate and continued to lead a full life. He shuttled back and forth between his family in the UK and his island family of friends here up to nearly the end.
Looking back my own personal memories of him are those of a gentle soul, casual and witty.
His good friend Nick Anthony has contacted us and said that a memorial will be held this coming Wednesday the 27th at Bangtao's Reggae Bar from 5 pm onwards. Anyone who knew Johnny is invited.
