MPTA is saddened to learn of the passing of former American Seating sales executive Sonny Gordon, who most recently had worked for USSC. Many of us remember Sonny fondly as a valued participant in the Annual MPTA Conferences and Vendor Exhibits. Sonny passed away last week following a battle with ALS-Lou Gehrig's Disease. He was a standout college football player in the early 1980s as a Defensive Back with the Ohio State Buckeyes and went on to be drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and played in the NFL as well as in the Canadian Football League. Sonny was a very outgoing, personable sales associate. We extend our sincere condolences to his lovely wife and family. At this time we are unaware of funeral arrangements.
