Brit found dead in hotel room

Brit found dead in hotel room

A 47-year-old machine operator from Pontypridd, South Wales, was found dead in his hotel room in Thailand, leaving family and friends devastated.

Simon Brown, known to many as Browny, was discovered lifeless last Saturday. An investigation into his untimely death is currently underway. Loved ones are in a state of total shock and sadness, as there were no prior indications of ill health. Close friend Mark Davies shared the disbelief felt by many.

“It’s just a total shock; it was so unexpected. He wasn’t ill. There was nothing wrong with him. Everyone knew him. He was a crazy bloke—really outgoing and always up for a laugh.” Simon was a well-known figure in Trallwn, celebrated for his zest for life and frequent travels to Thailand, a country he adored. His family now faces the daunting task of repatriating his body, a process that is both lengthy and expensive. They have launched a fundraising appeal to raise £10,000 (approximately 460,000 baht), with over £2,000 already contributed. Davies elaborated on Simon’s life, highlighting his hard-working nature and passion for travel.

“He was a hard worker as a machine operator, and when he wasn’t working, he was always on holiday. In particular, he loved going to Thailand. We don’t know anything at the moment about the circumstances. It only happened on Saturday, so we know very little.

“We are asking all those who knew and loved Browny to help us bring him back home. As a family, we are now trying to bring Simon back home so that we can lay him to rest in Swansea. Thanks to all those who have reached out and sent messages of condolence. We appreciate any help you can give.”

The GoFundMe campaign, created on Wednesday, has seen an outpouring of support, with nearly 50 donations, including one generous contribution of £500, according to Mirror UK.

The Thai authorities have yet to disclose the cause of death or where he was in Thailand when he died.
