Shawn “Hoser” Field


It is with great sadness that the family and friends of Shawn “Hoser” Field announce his sudden passing after a brief illness, on May 2, 2011, at the age of 51 years.

Shawn will be lovingly remembered by his parents Art and Aileen of Little Britain Canada, his wife Noi and children Shawnee and Paradon of Khon Kaen. Shawn will also be remembered by his brother Kevin and sister Kelly as well as nieces and nephews Andrea, Sara, Rob and Ben.

Shawn was a long time resident in Thailand having spent 12 years in Pattaya before moving to Khon Kaen in the mid nineties.  He was involved in many sporting activities in the Pattaya area and a strong supporter of the Jackalope Open and Jesters Care For Kids. He founded the Hoser “Goofing” Golf tournament in Khon Kaen in 2000 which attracted a number of local Pattaya golfers every year.

He was a man who had the ability to make friends as soon as he started talking with you, although sometimes a translator was needed to explain the “Hoserisms”, his own unique way of trying to explain what he was trying to say.

Hoser will be dearly missed by all of his family and friends, a funeral service will be held in Khon Khen at 15:00 on Thursday 12th May at Wat Krang followed by a Remembrance get-together at “Canuckville” on Saturday 14th May between 15:00-20:00.
