Sokkhim Chen

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Sokkhim Chen

Post by Sambodia » Sun Oct 04, 2020 2:52 am

Long time lurker here, making first post. Just found out my long-time tuk-tuk, friend, chemist in PP Sokkhim Chen passed. Did anybody else know him by chance? When I first met him it was by lakeside in 2010, he later would hang out at st 178 and riverside. RIP

Below is his FB for reference

RIP to your friend. I don't know him, but he seems awfully young to die.

Thanks friend, yes its tragic and he was too young, he also leaves behind 2 young children. He was a talented and great guy who struggled with mental health and substance issues like many young/poor khmer of his generation

Very sad to leave two young kids without a dad. Condolences to his family and friends.

You go with honour my friend.

Wow, what a beautiful and moving tribute. Thank you for sharing, Cambodian Charioteer indeed. These are very tough times for Tuk Tuk drivers in Phnom Penh (and just about everyone else in the world), so important to remember them and try to help as best we can.
