BSF regrets to announce the passing of founding member and Director, Steve Marcus, Ph.D.

It is with deep sadness and regret that we announce the passing of BSF Board member, Steve Marcus, Ph.D. Steve was a founding member of the Society in 1978 and has served continuously on the Board of Directors, and in various other capacities since then.

Steve was the self-appointed and Board endorsed “sergeant-at arms”, and a beloved fixture at BSF conferences along with his career-long professional partner, Mike Rothburd, Ph.D. Steve and Mike were known for their intelligent and often humorous commentary that livened our BSF workshops.

We offer our condolences to Steve's wife, Rocky, his family, friends, clients, and all who had the privilege of knowing him. He will be greatly missed.
