He was a mentor to me when I was an undergraduate at NU and I am sad to hear of his passing. Without his help, I would not have gone on to get my own doctorate in physics.
As an undergrad at Northwestern, I built parts for Professor Gobbi for the D0 detector at Fermilab. At the time, I and my fellow students wondered when he found time to sleep. When I worked at Fermilab as a postdoc,and met up with Bruno again, his unflagging energy and enthusiasm was what I remember most. It is hard to imagine that he's gone. My condolences to the family.
I was a postdoc at Northwestern, and I was once sent out to talk to talk to Bruno about the CMS vertex detector, which I was supposed to write code to model. What Bruno presented me with was a paper and cardboard 1:1 model of the detector, which I think maybe a student had made for him which he was obviously very pleased to have! He also took me on a tour of all the designs and plans for the detector, which he was very enthusiastic about. A loss to particle physics. My condolences to the family.
Cara Lisa,Maria e Serena, siamo addolorati che Bruno vi abbia lasciate , vi guarderà da lassù, dove non è solo, ma in compagnia dei suoi due fratelli.
Vi pensiamo Natascha, Pietro, Dayana, Jodie
I am sorry to hear of the passing of Bruno, he will be greatly missed. It is never easy to experience the death of our loved ones, but at times like this it helps to draw close to God and he will draw close to you and comfort you as James 4:8 says.
