It is with a sad heart we are passing along the news that Bruce Lippke passed away on Tuesday February 14th, 2023.  He left peacefully surrounded by his entire extended family – both in the room and virtually.

Bruce was one of two founding CORRIM Board of Directors and served as CORRIM’s president for 14 years (1996-2010). Bruce was a deep thinker and never let up the momentum on using LCA results to build a scientific database for quantifying the environmental impact of building materials.

We have set up a memorial page for colleagues and friends to offer their stories, memories, pictures, audio, or video. The page will serve as a permanent place to celebrate Bruce’s life and accomplishments.  I invite you to share your thoughts of what Bruce meant to you on that page, including funny stories, pictures, and remembrances.   It can be accessed here:

Details on a memorial service will be forthcoming as they become available.
