Pascal Frei, 1981 - 2016.

Mr Frei was found dead in his rented home in Kamala last Tuesday (June 14), after he apparently succumbed to a severe epileptic attack. (See story here.)

Andara Resort & Villas, where Mr Frei was Hotel Manager, issued an open letter on Saturday, as follows:

Dear colleagues, dear family & friends and acquaintances.

Our colleague, Pascal Frei, 35, sadly passed away on Sunday evening 12th June 2016 from complications due to a seizure from his epilepsy at his home in Kamala, Phuket.

Pascal was born 6th Feb 1981, in Purmerend, Netherlands and grew up in Switzerland with his beloved family on the shore of Lake Constance. there he trained as a chef and later graduated from the Swiss hotel Management School in Lucerne. Soon he wanted to discover more of the world, and after his management training at The Racha he returned to work at the Serenity Resort & Residences in Rawai, and he joined our Andara family, where his recent position was as a highly respected and much loved Hotel Manager.

He is survived by his mother; Nel, father; Patrick, and his brother and sister Marc & Danielle, together with their families.

Pascal, lived his life to the full. As a Hotel Manager at Andara, he took great pride in welcoming every guest and owner to Andara and often went the extra mile to ensure everyone enjoyed themselves.

He loved to travel and meeting people. It was impossible for Pascal to go anywhere and not make friends. He was an active committee member of the Swiss Society in Phuket and was also a member of the SKAL International here in Phuket.

Pascal’s body will be taken home to Switzerland for a full service and cremation, our fond memories of him will remain with us all.

A Buddhist ceremony will be held on Wednesday, 22nd June, at Kamala Temple on the Beach Road, Kamala. All are welcome; family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances. Please dress respectfully, but as Pascal would like to see you.

Schedule:

6.00 p.m. Buddhist ceremony at Kamala temple – friends and family who would like to pay respect during the day

8.00 p.m. Memorial gathering at the Andara lobby in Kamala – open to family, friends and colleagues

We look forward to meeting you and saying a fond farewell to Pascal.

Andara Family
