Albert N. Kass, 92, of Media, a retired electronics company owner, died Thursday, Dec. 2, at Bryn Mawr Hospital.
In 1959, Mr. Kass established Kass Electronics Distributors. The firm, located in Havertown and later in Drexel Hill, supplied parts to local radio and television stations. The business had spanned the technological revolution from tubes to transistors and ultimately to computer chips by the time he sold it in 1987, son Spence said.
Mr. Kass grew up in the Bronx borough of New York City. His Russian-immigrant father, Morris, was in the hosiery business and was cantor at a synagogue.
In the early 1940s, Mr. Kass married Beatrice Feinstein and went to work for her family's firm, Radio Electric Service Co. in Philadelphia.
During World War II, he was a sergeant in the Army stationed in England and Germany.
In 1951, he and his wife were founding members of the Suburban Jewish Community Center in Havertown and he became president of the center, a spiritual community of Conservative Jews. He and his wife raised two children in Havertown before divorcing.
In 1978, Mr. Kass married Wilma Gordon Shapiro, his executive assistant at Radio Electric. They lived in Boynton Beach, Fla., from 1988 until moving to Martin's Run, a retirement community in Media, this year.
Mr. Kass was a former member of White Manor Country Club in Malvern.
In addition to his wife and son, Mr. Kass is survived by son Fred; stepdaughters Cindy Shapiro and Donna Miller; and three grandchildren. He is predeceased by his former wife.
