Bruce McAlister

Bruce McAlister died last week. There was a memorial service for friends and family in Oakland this past weekend and at Green Gulch during evening service. Apparently he was living in a sober house in Berkeley and the man that rents out rooms there found Bruce.

Bruce came to Zen Center in 1971 and lived at all three centers. He worked at Greens for many years. He was a sweet guy
