Gunnar Ericsson
LAUSSANE, Switzerland (AP) ― Gunnar Ericsson, a long-time International Olympic Committee executive and former member of the executive committee, has died. He was 94.

The IOC says on its website that the former Swedish parliamentarian died Tuesday but does not provide a cause of death.

IOC President Thomas Bach says Ericsson “personified the Olympic values and was a true Olympic gentleman. The IOC will always remember him with deep gratitude and great respect.”

An IOC member since 1965, Ericsson served on the executive board from 1988-92, and headed the inspection team for the 2000 Summer Games bidding.

Ericsson became an honorary member in 1996 after resigning to allow compatriot Gunilla Lindberg to become an IOC member.

Lindberg says Ericsson is survived by his wife Stina.
