Jörgen Granlie at the UFO-Sweden board meeting October 12, 1996
He started his ufological career in 1976 as board member of the local group Enköpings UFO-förening (Enköping UFO Society). Between 1978-2011 Jörgen served as board member of UFO-Sweden in several capacities: vice chairman, secretary and treasurer. He was also an active field investigator, always meticulous in research and documentation. The older generation of Swedish ufologists also remember him as a skilled instructor at the annual UFO-Sweden Field Investigator training seminars in the 1970ies and 80ies.
UFO-Sweden board 1979. Jörgen in the middle
Jörgen Granlie worked as an engineer all his life. He was a practical man, a doer and idealist always ready to lend a hand with hard work. At the cottage rented by the local UFO group in Enköping, Jörgen was often seen moving the lawn, fixing the plumbing or doing general maintenance work. He was a regular visitor to AFU, one of our sponsors who always expressed his admiration and support for our work.
Jörgen Granlie was one of the pillars of UFO-Sweden. I will always remember him as an accomplished UFO collegue and good friend. With these pictures I give my tribute to a fine human being I had the privilege to know and work together with for many years.
