Many across the campus (and around the world) are mourning the loss. Rarely have I known a person as even-tempered, as competent and as selfless as Bruce Atkinson. I’m uncertain of who wrote this sentiment passed along to me by Emily Hynds, but it comes close to a summary of this dear colleague.
“Bruce was endlessly kind and generous. He had limitless patience and understanding. He smiled easily and was always upbeat. He experienced life with a boyish sense of wonder.”
The world is better because of Bruce Atkinson.
