The Canadian’s partner Urasin Kantaraphan hosted the Buddhist service at his Soi 8 Greenfield Village home off Soi Khao Noi July 31.

Family and friends make food offerings to the Buddhist monks after the religious ceremony.

Nine monks from Yansangwararam Temple conducted a blessing ceremony before having a forenoon meal. Those attending then joined together for lunch.

Garmaise died of liver cancer at Bangkok Hospital Pattaya on April 19, just shy of his 73rd birthday. He was cremated at Boonsamphan Temple on April 25.

He was one of the pillars of the Expats Club since joining in October 2007. He served on the governing board beginning in 2010 and as club secretary from July 2011 to July 2016 when illness forced him to step down and limit his participation.

Urasin is surrounded by friends who attended the ceremonies to remember their good friend David.

Members of the Pattaya City Expats Club attended the 100-day ceremony since David’s passing.
