Accidental Death of a Friend

I just learned that an old friend of mine, Dan Hughes (Dano here) was killed while riding his bicycle in the Hua Hin area.

That's all I know. Anyone have any more details?

Sorry to hear of your loss.

I was out mountain biking in Hua Hin this weekend with a group but I don't believe your buddy was with us.

I'd like to know some more details too...just so I can continue this hobby of mine minus the fear.

What I've just learned is that he was on his bike waiting at an intersection when two other vehicles collided. One of them hit Dan, killing him instantly. Broken neck.

He always wore a helmut, but I guess it wouldn't have helped in such a situation.

Sorry to hear that BH. Always tough losing a mate. Luckily, I've only lost one in the last few years and that was because the wanker didn't realise how much his friends and family loved him.

Dano? Did he post on the HH forum (not as Dano, though, I don't think). We do a book swap & a guy who called himself Dano (like Hawaii Five-O) came along to the first one. Nice guy, but he never came to the next one.

I haven't heard a thing; it hasn't been on the HH forum. I'm sorry to hear about your friend, in any case, & if he was the guy I met, then he was a very nice man.

He did post on the Hua Hin After Dark forum, but not often. He was more of a forum lurker. Good guy. Sometimes went by "Dano", sometimes by "Mr Huge". (His last name was Hughes, but some of his English students in Saipan pronounced that as "Huge"; hence the nick.)

Sounds like he might be the same man I met. My sincere condolences to you, all his friends and his family. He was a very amicable, friendly man from what I saw.

Yes, we both arrived on Saipan in 1979. He started out as a teacher, got an ESL cert and taught in Japan for a while and then came back and opened "Coffee Care" which was originally a coffee bar which expanded in to one of Saipan's most popular and best dining establishments.

He sold the restaurant last year and had, more or less, retired to his condo in Cha Am.
