      Mr. Bolton was president of the hardware company for 50 years, from 1933 until 1983, when he became chairman of the board.

      Mr. Bolton was a former Georgia Tech trustee and president of four local groups - the Griffin Chamber of Commerce, Hospital Authority, Credit Bureau, and Rotary Club. He also belonged to the Griffin Development Authority, was a Paul Harris Fellow of Rotary, and taught Sunday school at First Baptist Church.
