In August 2014 Sverri lost the battle against the dreaded disease ALS. Two years went by since he developed the first symptoms till he drew his last breath.
In the battle against ALS there are no winners and Sverri was fully aware of his destiny. Sverri was no quitter and he made an admirable effort to make the most out of the time he had left.
Sverri was a man of integrety, hugely competent and a generous and loyal friend. I could not have had a better expedition partner and friend.
