Jared Thomsen wrote – With all that is going on in this world right now the first thing I saw today pop up is Sonny Leonard passed away. I had the pleasure of him seeing my work at another shop and called me to do some stuff for him. As I had known him a little from before starting my company he acted like I had known he was, very humble and modest like any average guy, not the typical ego that is so prevalent in this industry. We had some good laughs so it truly pains me to see this.
