Pam BassettIt is with great sadness that we report the death of Kalkan fan Pam Bassett who passed away on Monday 7th May following a short illness.  She was 68 years old.

They made a great many friends in Kalkan over the years.  Pam was a great KAPSA supporter and a lover of cats - Persians in particular.  She often helped with feeding many of the street dogs and cats.

Chris SamuelsIt is with great sadness that we report the death of a regular visitor to Kalkan, Chris Samuels.

Chris had recently been suffering from cancer and the illness claimed his life yesterday, Sunday 14th May.  He was 73 years old.

Chris was a familiar face in Kalkan since his first visit around a decade ago.  Like many of us he fell under Kalkan's magical spell, bought his very own villa and became a regular visitor.  Chris made many friends in Kalkan over the last ten years and he will be missed.

Mehmet SertelMany people in Kalkan are coming to terms with the shocking news that a local young man, Mehmet Sertel lost his life in a tragic motorbike accident early this morning.

The incident is believed to have occured at about 05.20 this morning close to Yalı supermarket on Şehitler Caddesi.  The Jandarma are investigating what happened but we understand that there were no witnesses to the accident. 

CCTV images from local business premises appear to show that no other vehicles were involved, and it seems that Mehmet lost control of his motorbike and collided with the pavement.  Unfortunately Mehmet was not wearing a crash helmet and he suffered fatal injuries.

AlevIt is with great sadness that we report the untimely death of former Kalkan resident Alev Börükanlar. 

Alev died suddenly and unexpectedly today in her newly adopted home in Cambodia.  She was only 47 years old.

Alev was originally from Istanbul but she and her husband Mehmet were well known in Kalkan as the owners of the old Luka restaurant, which used to be near to the D400, up the hill from where we now have the Carrefour supermarket.  The Luka moved for a short time down to the spot where Black and Gold Bar was last year, next to Korsan Meze.

Alan Caine-WilliamsIt is with great sadness that we report the death of a regular visitor to Kalkan, Alan Caine-Williams.

Alan suffered a stroke last month and passed away on 23rd January.  He was in his early 80s.

Alan and his wife Sandi have been familiar faces in Kalkan since their first visit in 1992.  Like many of us they fell in love with the place and the people, and in 2000 they bought their own apartment.  They made many friends in Kalkan over the years.

Back in the UK Alan and Sandi have lived for a number of years in Norfolk where prior to retirement Alan worked in the agriculture industry.
