The Passing of Bruce Paul Bedford

With deep sorrow, we regret to inform you of the passing of Bruce Paul Bedford on April 29, 2021. Bruce was a sitting member of the Board of Governors of Antioch University at the time of his death with a total of twenty-six years of board service to Antioch. He was a guiding force through many difficult times and periods of re-invention of the University serving at one time as the Acting Chancellor. With full support of the Board of Governors and the University leadership, Bruce was the 2013 recipient of an honorary PhD degree from Antioch University for his selfless service and his deep dedication to Antioch University’s mission.

Bruce is survived by his wife, Ann, of 58 years, a sister, Bonnie, two daughters, three grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews, and the many colleagues and countless friends he made over his very full life. If you wish to send a note to his wife and family, please use the link to the funeral home below. Bruce will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
