Engineer and equipment salesman Art White passed away this month, according to White’s friend and SCMS colleague Bob Cauthen. He was 71.
According to Cauthen, at one time White had his own engineering and sales firm, where he repped Sparta and Cetec gear among other lines. During his career he also represented Cetec-Schaffer Corp. in the Middle Atlantic states, and worked as a sales manager for Register Data Systems.
According to the website ZoomInfo.com, White also was a station manager for Wilkins Communications Network. In 2003, SCMS named Art White as its south-Atlantic representative for broadcast products, according to a Radio World story.
White had requested that there be no services and that he be cremated.
Cauthen wrote in an email, “With Art’s passing it reminds us of the extensive history of radio and all the people that have worked in this industry, especially RF.” He added that White’s favorite saying, and sign-off, was “Have a Coke and a smile.”
