David Simon Ratcliffe: October 18, 1942 – April 6, 2017.


PHUKET:-- Friends and colleagues are invited to attend the funeral service for long-term Phuket resident David Ratcliffe, who passed away last Thursday (April 6). He was 74.


“David will be sorely missed by his loving wife, Cindy, his three daughters, Sian, Claire and Sarah, and his 10 grandchildren. David is survived by his two older sisters, Ann and Elizabeth,” wrote friend and fellow long-term Phuket expat Bruce Stanley.


David was born in Cardiff on October 18, 1942 during a World War II air raid.


“He worked his way up from an apprenticeship in Manchester to then study metallurgy at university in London. At university, David met Cindy and they married nearly 50 years ago in 1967, relocated to Australia in 1969 and moved around the world, living in Australia, the Netherlands, Brazil and Thailand,” wrote Mr Stanley.


“David had a long career in the metallurgy industry, concluding his career here in Phuket as Managing Director of Thaisarco,” he added.
