Well, the start of 2010 wouldn’t be conclusive I suppose without some bad news.
Robert Barber, the founder of BMI Supply, has passed away. BMI has just released some PR telling the sad news. From us here at JimOnLight.com, we’re really sorry for the loss to his friends, family, and BMI.
From Carl at BMI:
Robert S. Barber, President and CEO of BMI Supply, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, January 1, 2010. He was 54 years old.
Robert was a passionate businessman who took great pride in serving his hard-working customers across the theatre & entertainment industry. BMI Supply will continue operating with the customer service and overall business principles upon which Robert founded the company.
Robert’s family and the staff of BMI Supply express their deepest appreciation for the kind words and support offered.
Arrangements are pending. Updates will be posted at http://bmisupply.blogspot.com.
