The transmission industry lost another veteran on June 23 when Leo Frumkin passed away at the age of 93 after a brief illness. Leo was known for his outsized and engaging personality and will be missed by all who knew him.
Leo founded National Transmission Products (NATPRO) in 1973, which became one of the longest-surviving parts distributors in our industry. He led NATPRO for 40 years, until he sold the company and retired in 2014. NATPRO continues to thrive today.
Leo was a fixture at the national industry trade shows and was an early member of the ATRA. In addition to his business, he was very involved with his family and the many social causes he supported.
Leo is survived by his wife Sherry, son Mark, daughters Sally, Alisa and Syndee, six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
