Bjorn Richard Monsen died on November 9.
He worked for 30 years in the county municipality of Nordland, first as an attorney, and from 1989 until 2016 as a county attorney.
But the original Salt Valley was best known for its involvement in volunteer sports and cultural life.
Monssen has strongly contributed his knowledge and qualities to projects such as the Galleri Adde Zetterquist in Saltdal, the Hamsun Center in Hamarøy and Skulpturlandskap Nordland.
He has worked tirelessly in the local community in Bertens, especially the Instrandens Edrislag and Bertensdagan. The list of contributions is long, but he contributed among others to the construction of a new club in Bjørndalslisletta, the construction of Mørkvedhallen and the development of Nordly grendehus.
The Mayor of Bodo, Ida Pennyrod, presents HM the King with the Order of Merit to Monsen during a ceremony at a county council meeting on March 7, 2016.
“He’s a boundless drive, a salt enthusiast and a rock house lover, who stood out 24/7 on the most perfect projects sometimes, but he still hits the mark!” Describe his companions then.
I couldn’t believe it in my wildest imagination
Monssen was the initiator of the Trygve Hoff Foundation, the Grandmother and Bertnesdagan Festival, and contributed to the realization of the only tram route in northern Norway when the old Singsakertrikken appeared on rails during Bertnesdagan 1990, Pinnerød said.
He himself was subject to the award:
– I’m confused, happy and humble. I was absolutely stunned when I learned that I would be receiving the award. I couldn’t believe this in my wildest imagination. This was very nice.
“Infuriatingly humble web fan. Writer. Alcohol geek. Passionate explorer. Evil problem solver. Incurable zombie expert.”
