This slideshow, memorializing RFH Class of ’78 alum A.J. Bruner, was originally run on April 15, 2015. April 15 marked the 22nd anniversary of A.J.’s untimely death. We are running it again, as we do annually, to pay tribute to A.J. and say, as A.J.’s class readies for its 40th reunion this summer, “You are missed. You are remembered.”
The popular class officer, athlete, writer, artist, singer-songwriter, friend to many, son, brother, cousin, and all-around great guy died of lung cancer at the young age of 36 on the day of the 100th Boston Marathon — April 15, 1996.
He is memorialized by many at the annual RFH A.J. Bruder Memorial Run and is remembered daily by countless people whose lives he touched with his generous, contagious spirit.
Take a look at the A.J. of RFH days. Godspeed, A.J. Bruder. Thank you for enriching our lives!
Many thanks to George Day for the photos of A.J.!
