Seth M. Sternberg
Oct. 8, 1945 - Sept. 6, 2010

A Memorial Service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, October 10, 2010 at Agudas Achim Synagogue in Livingston Manor, New York for Seth M. Sternberg, who passed away suddenly at his home on September 6, 2010.
Born October 8, 1945 in New York City, he is survived by his mother Esther E. Sternberg, his brothers Adam and Lewis Sternberg, all of New York City; his nephew Benjamin; his niece Ella; his special family Craig, Angel, Skyler and Cortney Klinegardner; and many close friends.
A member of New York Theatrical Union, Local One, Seth was involved in many theatrical productions during his long career. He was the Stage Manager of the original productions of “Hair” and “Jesus Christ Superstar.” For more than 20 years, Seth was a theatrical electrician at the Metropolitan Opera Company in Manhattan, and, in that capacity, he was involved in hundreds of productions, both at the Met as well as around the world.
In his “retirement,” he consulted for local theaters, starting with Sullivan West and Tri-Valley schools. For the past several years he worked with students at Tri-Valley school, introducing them to the art of technical theater, and he developed a program to train students in the use of the theatrical equipment in Tri-Valley’s wonderful new theater facility. Seth used his expertise to assist Sullivan Renaissance, the Sullivan County Community College Foundation, the Forestburgh Playhouse Theatre, and he initiated a cooperative project with Cobalt Studios and Tri-Valley Central School.
He was a strong environmentalist and spent many enjoyable hours exploring and hiking in his woods. A terrific entertainer and a voracious reader, he loved history, politics, and the art of discussion and debate.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Seth’s name to the Roscoe Public Library, 85 Highland Ave., Roscoe, NY 12776-0339. Arrangements are by Harris Funeral Home, Roscoe, NY.
