2018 [lightshowwest.com]: “ Please join us in remembering an industry icon who was loved and respected by many. Rob Rubenstein, Principal at SCI Lighting Solutions, passed away on Saturday, August 25, 2018 during a scuba diving trip to Catalina. Here’s a note that Tom Thomson, President at SCI Lights, shared on LinkedIn:
“This past Saturday we lost one of the truly great team members and leaders at SCI, Rob Rubenstein. Rob was a true gentleman, a great friend for over 30 years, a husband and a father. Rob will be truly missed at SCI as you can only imagine. Rob had the unique ability to bring calmness and sensibility to his passion for the lighting business. While he worked on some amazing projects at SCI, Rob had so many other interests outside of SCI! Rob we will continue and press on as you would want us to. RIP.” Rob loved nature and animals, so SCI has donated a number of trees to be planted in Klamath National Forest in memory of Rob Rubenstein.
