Druce, Norman David, self-taught audio genius and maverick humanitarian, passed away Monday, October 7th, 2019. Druce was the proud founder and owner of Atomic Instrument Company, a builder of high-end power supply units and studio monitors for Grammy and Oscar-winning audio engineers, artists, and producers. Atomic Instrument Company has units in many countries around the world. Throughout his life, Druce was passionate about studio design, acoustic consulting, wiring, custom console fabrication, console installation, and maintenance. Before founding Atomic, he cut his teeth on analog tape recording, and he built and wired his own and friends' studios and played in rock 'n' roll bands—most notably Bigon, a post-punk noise rock band. Druce was 46 years of age, a son of the late David and Debra (née Schwalm). A dear brother, Jeremy, preceded him in death 18 years ago. Druce is survived by a brother, Jeffrey, of America, and wife, Misty, of Holly Michigan, along with grieving aunts, uncles, cousins, many friends, a Porche 911 Carrera, and a clowder of rescued and slightly spoiled feral cats: Wolfe, Norma-Jean, Carlos, Jacob Michaels, Peanut Marie, and Cinnabun.
