We have the sad task to inform that Ingolf Kapelrud, FRPSL passed away on the evening of the 10th of July 2018 at the age of 74, after a period of illness.
Ingolf was President of Federation of Norwegian Philatelists 1987-1993. He was President of FEPA 1995-2001, and Honorary FEPA President since 2001.
Ingolf served as a thematic juror in 18 international exhibitions 1994-2010, and he represented Norway as commissioner also for 18 international exhibitions.
From 1992 to 2000 he was board member for FIP’s section for Astrophilately and from 1996 to 2008 board member for FIP’s Thematic Commission.
He was a fantastic philatelist who worked very hard for philately.
He was also an extremely kind person and we were lucky to have worked together and to became a good friend of him. Rest in peace.
We have lost a very good friend, and so has the philatelic world.
