It is with deep regret that we share the sad news from the University of British Columbia regarding the passing of Alan Steeves. Alan contributed much to PACE over the years. He served as the PACE Integrator for UBC since 2001, received the PACE Distinguished Integrator award in 2008, and most recently served as the Papers Committee Chair and CIC Project Competition Lead. His wisdom and humor will be missed by many in the PACE Community. We extend heartfelt sympathy and condolences to his colleagues at UBC, his family, and his friends. http://www.hopestandard.com/mobile/obits/?id=10025707
