Sonny Sonnenfeld lived a full life and passed away at 96

SonnyIndustry icon Sonny Sonnenfeld died today. He was 96. In 2014, Lighting&Sound America wrote, "There is no more indelible personality in the lighting industry than Sonny Sonnenfeld." The legendary salesman and educator mentored many of the key figures in today's lighting industry and participated in the startup of many key industry companies. He was also a commentator (and sometime gadfly) for many industry publications.
