I just found out that a professor of mine from New Mexico Tech has passed away.
Art Bukowski was one of the funniest, helpful and most genuine professor/person/human being that I'd ever had the pleasure of getting to know. I know a lot of students weren't too keen on his method of teaching, but he put his heart into every lesson, no matter how many times he had to have taught it. He had a passion for his craft that I feel is rarely seen in the world anymore.
He is honestly one of the reasons I decided to step foot into teaching. The way he helped me regardless of how easy the material was always stood out. He was very clever and had a great sense of humor. I will truly miss him.
He may have been a professor of math and has nothing to do with any artistic endeavor, but if there's someone who deserves to be remembered, it's him.
May he rest in peace.
