University Book Store Chief Executive Officer and Mill Creek resident, Bryan Pearce, who had been with the store since 1990 and was named CEO in 2002, succumbed to a yearlong battle with cancer on Saturday, April 20, 2013.

His successor Louise Little, previously the store's director of Human Resources since 1989, said, "Bryan lived this last year with an incredible amount of focus and determination, not to mention courage. He was a teacher, mentor, friend, and colleague who inspired those of us who worked with him to be the best that we could be.
