Howard McKinley Bolton, of Oak Ridge, TN died Tuesday, April 7, 2020, due to complications from heart disease. He was 75 years old.
Howard was born September 18, 1944, in White Oak, Tennessee, the fourth child of the late Frank and Bessie Bolton. After years as an ironworker and in the coal business, a back injury forced him into retirement. Howard enjoyed several years as a stay-at-home dad to his two youngest children.
In addition to his parents, Howard was preceded in death by one son, Vance Ison; one sister, Genevee Marlow; and two brothers, Carl and Hoyt Bolton.
His survivors include daughter Tonia Bolton, of Florence, Kentucky, son and daughter-in-law Josh and Heather Bolton, of Oak Ridge, and daughter and daughter-in-law Gretchen Bolton and Jennifer Perkins, of Berea, Kentucky; brother and sister-in-law Bob and Carol Hicks, of Middle Tennessee; long-time companion Sharon Denton, of Oak Ridge ; former wife Deborah Huddleston Bolton, of La Follette; nephew Rodney Bolton, of Caryville; several grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives and friends. Howard had the foresight to choose cremation (an excellent choice during a pandemic!), with no public services scheduled. Weatherford Mortuary in Oak Ridge is in charge of arrangements.
