Hank Sternberg, 50, an active member of the Vienna community, died of a heart attack on Friday.
A funeral service will be held at 5 p.m. Sunday at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Fairfax in Oakton.
Sternberg, a Washington, D.C. native, was the owner of Cyber Services, Inc., an Internet technology company based in Vienna. He was also a volunteer Boy Scout leader and a member of the local chapter of the Rotary Club.
David Agatston, a close family friend, vacationed with Sternberg and his wife two weeks ago in Miami. He shared the following thoughts about his friend with Patch.
"Hank had a wonderful sense of humor, loved music (especially the blues), loved to discuss and debate with his friends about a wide range of topics including politics, technology and religion. He was a great neighbor who was always willing to help out with anything anyone needed. He was also one of the handiest guys I knew who was always working on projects around his house – he built his own deck and pool. He loved technology and was always excited about the newest gadgets – digital cameras, iPads, etc. He loved camping and fishing and went on an annual fishing trip with friends to North Carolina. As an active scout leader, he was often camping with his kids."
Sternberg is survived by his wife Nancy Sternberg and their three children, Greg Sternberg, 16, Jacob Sternberg, 14, and Stephanie Sternberg, 12.
The family is requesting that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the American Heart Association in Sternberg's honor.
