Swedish expat Lars Goran Dikander, 66, passed away on Monday in Chon Buri surrounded by his family.
He will be missed by many, said Wal Brown, head co-ordinator of the Royal Thai Police Region 8 volunteers on the island.
“Lars had been here [in Phuket] and helping people for years – since the tsunami,” Mr Brown noted.
“He was not a volunteer with the Region 8 Police. He was a volunteer who worked out of the Chalong Police Station and then with the Karon Police. He worked with many police from different stations throughout Phuket.”
