RIP Pancho (White Cobra)

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

I just found this out :(

I knew Pancho for many years, always a nice guy. Apparently lung cancer took him.

Sad to hear this. I haven't been to his bar in a long time but he did a great job and a was a perfect host. I guess the end of White Cobra (if it hasn't already gone). The old days and faces are slipping away.

Back in the day whenever I was a serious tear, White Cobra was always the end point of the evening, early morning. Many fascinating things happened there...
RIP

I didn't know the guy but I wish that I had. Pretty juvenile Malaysian king he's holding there.

where was his bar? Siem Reap?
Still hunting for opium paraphernalia.

RIP, always a nice enough fella, not a usual hang for me but it was sort of on the map once for me. Loved his big bike and non chalance, never saw a sign of health issues in the last few mos. in him.

That's sad news. One of the unique characters of PP.

Does anyone know his age? I'd have guessed early seventies.

I did not personally know Pancho, but I have friends here that knew him well.
All I can say is this.
I was at the mall early this afternoon and the mood was somewhat subdued. A girl that I was sat with asked me to excuse her as she wanted to cross the road to where he lay and cry for him.
When they brought him out and placed him into an ambulance, there were so many people gathered outside that it brought the traffic on street 51 to a complete standstill.
That says it all to me.
That man will be sadly missed by so many
RIP Pancho

Did not know you but saw you around. Friends told me that you were an alright dude for real, which is a pretty good accolade for 51. RIP.

RIP Pancho. You welcomed me with open arms from the very first night/morning I stumbled in. Your bar was my chill out place, my last drinks bar and generally my go to bar. You are missed :beer3:
