Neil Terk, 55, chairman of Terk Technologies, died Saturday, May 3, 2003, at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital in New York, after a battle with lung cancer.

Neil Terk founded Terk Technologies and served as its president since its inception in 1985. Neil applied his background in industrial design and engineering to spend the last 18 years creating TERK’s product line.

“We are deeply saddened at the passing of Neil Terk. He was a true entrepreneur who had the confidence to invest his personal resources to start this company and build it into a successful operation focused on the research, design and engineering of innovative products,” stated TERK’s CEO Steve Roth. “The loss of Neil will be felt by everyone who knew him and whose lives he touched.”

Many have stated over the years that Neil Terk “created a category where once there was none.” Terk brought value to a category that now contributes significant sales to CE retailers, mass merchandisers and specialty dealers.

Neil was on the executive board of the Consumer Electronics Association as Chairman for the Accessories Group and is a former chair of the Antenna Subcommittee. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.

Neil Terk’s funeral service was held, May 6, at Sinai Chapels, in Fresh Meadows, N.Y.

The Terk family has asked that instead of flowers, donations be made to Cancer Care-Woodbury Chapter, in memory of Neil Terk, 20 Crossways Park North, Suite 110, Woodbury, N.Y. 11797. Phone 516-364-8130.
