I am still at shock and heartbroken by the news that my dear friend, Gunnar Mortensen has passed away yesterday due a motorcycle accident.
If you lose a friend like Gunnar, it is very hard to find the right words. He was a passionate focus puller, a great and loyal friend but most important a loving husband and father to his son Lars. I am grateful to knew him as a friend and I owe him so much. Without him, focuspulleratwork would not be what it is today.
It is not often to meet someone in your life, you admire for the path he takes, the things he has achieved and at the same time, the kindness he shows and the laughs you share.
My heart is broken, but I know, this is just a fraction of what his family must feel right now. My deepest condolences to his parents, wife and son. May the light shine on you during these dark days.
You will never be forgotten, will forever live on in our hearts and prayers, and some day we will drink some whiskey with the gods.
May you rest in peace my friend.
We miss you!
