Long-time Swedish expat, volunteer passes away

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.”
