Former Recoton and Mitsubishi executive Terry O’Flynn passed away on Aug. 27 of cancer
O’Flynn’s last position in the industry was as president of Recoton Accessories. Previously, he served as president of Mitsubishi Consumer Electronics of America.

He was such a joy to be around — his enthusiasm and good humor were contagious. All who knew him in our industry will miss his charm, quick wit and commitment to contributing to the continued health and growth of the consumer electronics industry.”
