Tribute to Göran Larsson

In July we heard the sad news that our friend and colleague Goran Larsson passed away in the presence of his wife and family. EAPN members and secretariat would like to pay the following tributes to Goran and to pass on our sympathies to his wife, family and friends.

As Director of EAPN I had the privilege to get to know Goran. I highly appreciated his supportive presence, his great sense of humour and his absolute commitment to fighting poverty.  He will be missed by many. Goran was a member of the EAPN European level Executive Committee on behalf of the Salvation Army from 1998 to 2012.
