Stuart Diamond died three days before his trip back to Scotland to spend Christmas and New Year with his family.

According to Diamond's daughter, Michelle Pol, the family were shocked and devastated, and the cause of her father's death was still unknown.

Michelle also added: “Because of distance and language barrier, we are still waiting for confirmation of the cause of his death.

“All we know is he became ill a few days before and ended up in hospital where he died on December 20.

“His funeral took place on Christmas Eve, the day after he had been due to travel home.

“In keeping with Thai culture, dad was cremated.

“The funeral took place in Bangkok and Udon Thani, the village where he lived.”

Michelle also revealed her dad only married Thai national Somoh last month.

“We are all shocked and saddened,” she said.

“I’d bought him a present this year because he was coming home to spend Christmas with us for the first time in ages.”

Michelle said her dad spent part of his childhood in Glamis, where his mother Elizabeth was well-known for running the village shop and post office.

After he left school, he worked at Wilkies factory in Kirriemuir, before becoming involved with laying pipes in the oil industry.

His work took him all over the world, including Russia, Algeria, Italy and Portugal. He moved to Thailand in 1998.

Michelle said Mr Diamond divided his time between Thailand and Scotland and most recently lived in Coupar Angus.

She added: “Dad loved the Thai culture and really embraced the Thai way of life. 

“However, he also loved Scotland and enjoyed coming home to have banter with friends and family.”

A celebration of Mr Diamond’s life will be held at the Red House Hotel in Coupar Angus today.

He also leaves behind daughters Donna, Nadia and Sabrina, son Nathan and grandchildren Carla and Dylan.

She went to bed again but the noises came back. She thought her mother was going into the toilet. But when she turned the lights on, she saw her 51-year-old neighbor Khongsit Sawatsala standing her bedroom doorway.

She grabbed her deceased husband's .38 gun which she kept under her pillow and fired two warning shots. The man tried to grab the gun, and it went off three more times into the ceiling

ThaiVisa reported that the victim's mother came and she was kicked to the ground. The victim's 17 year old daughter grabbed an electric iron and smacked Khongsit in the head that caused him to flee.
