Farewell to Jeffery ‘Barny’ Clarkson

Just recently the golfers on the ‘Dark Side’ of Pattaya learnt of the passing in Australia of Jeffery Clarkson, known as ‘Barny’ to his many friends here.

Back in Australia he was a keen golfer and a Rugby League fan (South Sydney Rabbitohs).

Barny had been coming to Pattaya frequently since 2006 but sadly for the last 4 years he had suffered severe health problems with many hospital visits. However, in between bouts of treatment he made his way to the Eastern Seaboard to see his friends and play golf, being looked after by the lovely Nui.

His last visit was just a few weeks ago and he came and played with the Monday Club at Pattaya Country Club. Last Monday the 17 members stood for a minute’s silence in his memory.

Barny – God saw you getting tired so he called you home to rest – his garden must be beautiful – he only takes the best.

RIP Barny from your many friends in Pattaya,

Nigel Cannon
