Goodbye Thamrong Phongthitithep

ThamrongPhongthitithepWhen I was working in the circus, there were more assholes and morons than good people. In my ten years there, I have encountered only a handful of good people.

Thamrong Phongthitithep was a good man.

I am very saddened by his passing.

Thamrong Phongthitithep from our Thai office left us suddenly last night. He will be sorely missed. Though I am still away, I received the news almost immediately. I am beyond heartbroken.

Dear Khun Thamrong, you showed me kindness amidst an unkind corporate culture full of vultures and hypocrites. In the face of countless superficial others who only focus on how to take care of their own careers and to backstab other colleagues, you taught me how to be helpful. In the presence of loudmouths and bullshitters hiding in every nook and cranny of the company, you demonstrated humility and fearlessness. While others waited to see me trip and stumble, you went the extra mile to be my friend and to ensure that I succeed. While others talk the talk you walked the talk.

This world has lost a good man, a true gentleman.

Rest in peace, my friend.
