Leo Imperial, 36, national sales manager of Long Island, N.Y.-based video display distributor Electrograph Systems, died suddenly last month.
He joined the company in 1990 as a warehouse manager and was promoted to national sales manager in 2000. "Leo was a great person, a fantastic employee and a very close friend," said Electrograph's president Sam Taylor. "We will all miss him dearly."
He is survived by his wife Rose and two sons, Cory and Jesse. Electrograph has established a college fund for the boys, to which contributions can be made in lieu of flowers. Donations can be sent to The Imperial College Fund c/o Electrograph Systems, 40 Marcus Blvd., Hauppauge, NY 11788.
