NEW YORK — Services for Stanley Kaye, 72, co-founder and president of Kayo of California, a women’s apparel manufacturer based in Los Angeles, were held Feb. 2 in Los Angeles.
According to a son, Jonathan, a principal in the firm overseeing sales and merchandising, Kaye died Jan. 31 of heart failure at his home in Westwood, Calif.
Kaye, along with his partner, Jack Ostrovsky, who is secretary-treasurer of the business, formed the company in 1967.
