Obituary – Former NVBF President and CEV BoA member John Framnes
News from the National Federations

Oslo, Norway, January 7, 2019. The Volleyball family mourns the passing of John Framnes, former President of the Norwegian Volleyball Federation (NVBF), member of the CEV Board of Administration and of the FIVB Legal Commission as well.
 
Mr Framnes remained very close to Norway’s Volleyball family even after stepping down from his duties, and recently visited the NVBF headquarters to wish everyone working there a Merry Christmas. Framnes was NVBF President for 15 years from 1971 to 1986, the longest term for any President of the Norwegian Federation. After a break of 10 years, he returned as a member of the Board of Administration in 1996.  

Framnes raised the international status of Norway’s Volleyball family after joining the FIVB Judiciary Commission in 1972 and as a member of the FIVB Legal Commission afterwards. He was a long-time member of the CEV Board of Administration as well, up until 1993, taking charge of the so-called Small Nations. He was involved in development projects too and had extremely good communication and problem-solving skills, while spreading positive energy among the people he worked with. He enjoyed playing Volleyball himself at Waisenhuset in Oslo and was still an honorary member of the NVBF.

During his tenure, he initiated an important collaboration with the Norwegian School of Sports and received special honours from the National Federations of Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland as an acknowledgment to his contribution to the development of Volleyball in the Nordic countries. John always had a story to tell about his experiences from international meetings or from events that he had attended in Norway and abroad. His ability to care about the development of Volleyball was something that characterised his business and leadership.

Framnes passed away in January 2, 2019 at the age of 81.

Europe’s Volleyball family would like to extend the most sincere condolences to the family of Mr Framnes and to the whole Norwegian Volleyball community.
