Rick and Bruce, Your dad changed my life. His strong conviction to teaching and technology taught me to embrace technology rather than run away from it. I use the tools he taught me in Systems Analysis 101 on a daily basis and will never forget the hours he spent helping me debug programs (back on punch cards -- I know I am showing my age!). In later years he went from a professor to a friend and wanted me to call him 'John ' however it never felt comfortable because of the deep respect I had for him. He will forever be Mr. Chalmers -- an amazing Computer Science Professor.
