R.I.P. Bruce Gillespie

I just found out that Bruce passed away on the 30th of March.
In the realm of my somewhat extended RRC career, I had Bruce as an instructor just a couple of times, and we always got along pretty well, especially when it came to music. I remember he corrected me when I identified the singer of "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence" as Johnny Horton (it was Gene Pitney), but was impressed that I knew who Johnny Horton was.
Bruce was also one of the first people to encourage me to come back to the program after I failed the first time, and got me to read all I could about the business, which is part of why I'm such an addict for graphic design/illustration info.
Rest in peace, sir.
