We regretfully announce that our good friend and colleague Kent Nilsson, past President of the Swedish BBQ Association, passed away peacefully in his sleep last night. As President of the  World BBQ Association I would like, on your behalf, to extend our sincere and deepest sympathies to his wife Elisabeth who was with him, as well as to his children and grand-children, and all his extended family and friends throughout the world.

Kent was a wonderful man who enjoyed life to the fullest, and he will be greatly missed. He fought a brave fight against his illness, but throughout maintained a philosophical and serene outlook.

May he rest in peace

President: Patrick O’Sullivan

Vice President: Robert Meyer
