Bruce Limpus Obituary
LIMPUS
Bruce Limpus, renaissance man, passed away August 29. Born May 14, 1928, Bruce enlisted in the US Army Air Corps in 1946 and served for 26 years. His career was spent as a linguist and crypto-analyst with the USAF Security Service. Upon retirement from the USAF, Bruce taught English, Drama, and GT Media classes in the Edgewood District for 21 years. These experiences led him to write a widely used guide to media education. In 1997, he began to work full time on his life long love, the arts. He was a visual artist, poet, novelist, playwright, actor, director, and scenic and costume designer, winning several awards for his work. In 2003, SATCO recognized him as a Living Legend. If a man's life is measured in the number of people whose lives he has touched, Bruce had a remarkable life. He nurtured numerous artists, actors, writers, teachers and students, all whom benefited from his knowledge, generosity, and humor. Bruce is survived by Sheila, his wife of over 51 years, his daughter Teresa Zapp, her husband David, and their children Amanda and Jacob. He is also survived by innumerable friends who loved him deeply and will miss him. Services
