One of my favorite things about “Dr B” was his passion for learning. As knowledgeable as he was, he never missed an opportunity to learn from people and didn’t think himself above others. I particularly loved that he enjoyed teaching as well. So often I went to him with questions about procedures, anatomy, instruction, and support. He taught freely and joyed in elevating those whom he surrounded himself with. A truly great man, gifted in so many ways. Thank you for giving so much of yourself, we are all better because of you." - Dr. Kuchenmeister

We lost not only a co-worker but a true friend, He was family to us. He will be missed!"
