Very sad to see this. Dr. Bogue was my MA thesis advisor and an inspiration and mentor to me as a student. My first time as his student was nearly seven years ago, and I was amazed by his stamina and hoped that I could be as active as he was when I got older.

The most important lesson I learned from Dr. Bogue was that ordinary human beings, working together, have the power to change the most alarmist forecasts, that we have the ability to shape our own future. When Dr. Bogue first began his work, demographers were sounding off about the "population bomb", which was averted thanks to the efforts of those like Dr. Bogue. As an undergrad, I felt as if the future was preordained by existing trends, but as Dr. Bogue's student, I learned that we can prove the most reliable predictions wrong by organizing to alter the current trends behind those predictions. This restored my belief that the future might be better than today because we have the power to shape our own destiny as a species.

I will greatly miss Dr. Bogue, but I know that his work will live on in all of the students he had, their own students, and in the work of all who were blessed to work with him, as well as with his family, to whom I express my deepest sympathy. I feel so blessed to have known him and had him as a mentor.

To the family...I am very sorry for your loss. God is opening your hand and satisfying the desire of every living thing. Psalm 145:16

In addition to his acclaimed professional work and publications, Professor Bogue was always extremely kind and helpful to students, me among them. Prof. Bogue remained active at the University far into his emeritus years and when I saw him walking on campus I always felt God was in his heaven and all was right with the world. I will miss seeing that gentle soul. We are enriched for the man he was and the work he did while here.
