I am saddened to hear of Bruce's passing. I know he will be greatly missed by family and especially his loving friend Sheryl. Bruce was a true friend and a true gentleman, in every way and every day. He was delightful to work with at UC in the Professional Practice Division where our paths crossed fortuitously when I joined the faculty for a few years. We had been high school and college fraternity brothers, and his interest in the study of Architecture as a UC student influenced me to attend UC as well and become an Architect. His manner and commitment to assisting students to realize and pursue their aspirations was to be admired. He found his place and those budding architectural students that crossed his threshhold were as fortunate as I to meet such a fine man, and friend for life.
