NEW YORK — Alan B. Larkin, a pioneer of apparel trade shows, died Sunday morning at Boca Raton Community Hospital of heart failure. He was 80.
Reached Wednesday in Boca Raton, David Larkin, his eldest son, said, "My dad had just finished eating lunch with a friend at a bar. When the check arrived, both tried to reach into their pockets to see who could pay the bill the fastest. My father fell off the stool, broke some bones, developed pneumonia and later died of complications."
