Manager of drycleaning, wetcleaning division dies at age 59

PATERSON, N.J. — Arthur Fatica, manager of the drycleaning and wetcleaning division for Pariser Industries, and the driving force of its marketing support systems, died July 31 at the age of 59, reports Pariser Industries.

He had been fighting cancer for the last number of years, the company notes.

Throughout that time, and as a 20-year employee of the firm, Fatica significantly contributed to the sustained growth and health of the company, which manufactures specialty cleaning chemicals.

“During his tenure with Pariser Industries, Art’s efforts were largely responsible for expanding the firm’s national footprint and reputation throughout the United States,” says Scott Pariser, president, Pariser Industries Inc.

“Art’s energy, enthusiasm, and artistic talent helped establish Pariser. Art joined Pariser Industries in 1999 after a long stint managing a well-established, successful New Jersey drycleaning operation.”

Initially developing local sales territories for Pariser drycleaning, laundry and wetcleaning products in the New York/New Jersey and Connecticut marketplace, Fatica was promoted to marketing manager while also focusing on national distributor development, helping the company to increase its national footprint to over 40 states and Canada.

The family requests memorials in his name be made to CarePartners Foundation, P.O. Box 25338, Asheville, NC 28813.

“Art dearly loved his company,” reflects Pariser on his friend, “and his devotion to it, along with his dedicated efforts and genuine collegial spirit, will always be remembered and honored.”
