I'm sorry to report my friend Bruce Gordon died suddenly on November 6. An Imagineer, Disney author and historian, skilled designer, popular speaker and a key member of the Walt Disney Family Museum team, Bruce was a giving friend, always happy to share his knowledge and technical expertise. I never felt more complimented or honored than when Bruce would say to me, “You’re one of the good ones.” He wrote, designed and contributed to many Disney books, including one of his best (pictured here), The Art of Disneyland. I posted about the forthcoming Imagineering book written by Jeff Kurtti and designed by Bruce here. As Bruce was a longtime Imagineer this much-anticipated volume will serve as a fitting tribute to him. Bruce, you were one of the good ones. For that and a million other reasons you will be missed.
