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.
