Rockville Center, N.Y. — Fred Bolton, a 25-year veteran of the consumer electronics industry, died on Jan. 1.
Over the course of his career, Bolton held regional and national sales and marketing management roles with Sharp Electronics and Universal Remote Control. In 2003, he successfully founded his own independent sales representative firm — Fred Bolton and Associates.
“Fred Bolton was both a consummate professional and a true gentleman, making him highly revered by the many people that he came into contact with,” said former Sharp Electronics Corporation co-worker and longtime friend Bill Yank. “He will be greatly missed.”
Mr. Bolton is survived by his wife Kathleen and daughters Annie and Jeanne Marie. In lieu of flowers, contributions to Catholic Education at St. Jean Baptiste, 173 East 75th Street, New York, N.Y. 10021, (212) 288-1645, are appreciated.
