Today, it has been noted (by Nick Cox in Ten Fold) that recently Dr. Bruce E. Trumbo, professor emeritus of statistics, biostatistics, and mathematics, author of two books, and most prominently one of the top users in our community, passed away at his home on July $8, 2022.$
He was a prolific teacher and a magnificent explainer that was reflected in his numerous posts here. As summed here:
Bruce loved to teach and devoted his life to teaching and learning. His teaching spanned seven decades. He taught his last class at CSU East Bay the week before the first Bay Area COVID-19 lockdown. After leaving the university, he continued to teach on the Stack Exchange website as BruceET, answering more than 3,000 probability and statistics questions; he often included R code for demonstration purposes. Through these efforts, Bruce earned 49,382 reputation points, placing him in the top 0.48 percent overall. His impact was impressive; he reached ~2.6 million people.
For the sake of cognizance of the entire community, this has been reported here. His absence will be felt here and he will be missed greatly. For the years to come, his posts would inevitably help many.
