Dr. Bede’s Wishes

In the March 20, 2013 edition of the DeSales Daily, we announced the passing of Dr. Julius Bede, retired Associate Professor of Computer Science.

Out of respect for Dr. Bede’s final wishes, the executors of his estate have firmly decided to honor his request that there be no funeral or memorial services for him.

Julius G. Bede earned graduate degrees from Lehigh University (M.S., 1960) and Columbia University (Sc.D.,1972) and worked for nearly two decades in industry, specifically for AT&T Bell Laboratories, until beginning his tenure as a faculty member in the Department of Mathematics/Computer Science at DeSales University in 1988.  Dr. Bede was the founding Director of the Master of Science in Information Systems (M.S.I.S.) graduate program at DSU, and previously served as Department Chair of Mathematics/Computer Science.  For over twenty-five years, Dr. Bede taught mathematics and computer science courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels, before retiring in August 2012.  He was an active outdoorsman who enjoyed hiking, cycling and swimming.  A wine connoisseur, Dr. Bede enjoyed sharing his love of wine with his friends and colleagues, all of whom now mourn his loss.
