Tobbe "Kojv" Landin


Kojv (Tobbe Landin, from Sweden) probably did more than anyone else to keep the Towel Day tradition alive from 2004-2008. After the original website vanished, he created a new site at He hosted the Towel Day forum, where he was affectionately known as "Father Kojv".

He unexpectedly died on 15 November 2008, only 30 year old. Though a funeral service was held in 2008, we were informed that his ashes would be buried in 2009, on the day that was so important to him.

This obituary appeared in a local newspaper:

Obituary from a local newspaper


My beloved husband
My everything
born on 26 October 1978

in Borlänge

Occasionally time stops for a while
and something completely unexpected happens
The world changes every day
but sometimes it will never be the same again.
-- Alf Henrikson
