Obituary - Mr. Hans G. Lindberg

We are extremely sad to have to inform you that Mr. Hans G. Lindberg (SE) unexpectedly died on Monday the 21st of November 2016 at home, in his house in Rydsgård, Sweden.
Hans joined a SVERAK club in 1979 and bred Abyssinians together with his late wife. He was appointed a category III judge in 1989 and a category IV judge in 2012. Hans has been very involved in SVERAK and in FIFe. He was a SVERAK Board member for three periods and in FIFe he held the position of Vice-Secretary of the Board from 1991 until 1993. He was also a member of FIFe Disciplinary Commission since 1989 and chairman of this commission since 1993 until his death.
We will all remember Hans as a friendly gentleman who loved the cats he judged; he was a kind and decent person with the highest moral values and he will be sorely missed by all of us. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and his FIFe Member, SVERAK.
By order of the Board,
Eric Reijers – General Secretary
