NEW YORK — Morris Camhe, 83, an long-time apparel executive who was a financial backer of many small-to-medium-sized firms, died last Thursday.
The cause of death was a stroke, according to his son, Louis.
Camhe worked in manufacturing early in his career, starting when he was 16 years old. For the last 40 years he was a financial backer, his son said. Camhe was active until the time of his death, acting as a silent partner in several companies, including S.L. Fashions, a moderate dress firm at 1400 Broadway.
In addition to his son Louis, Camhe is survived by two other sons, Jack and Samuel; three daughters, Pamela Camhe, Renee Popkin and Mona Marcille, and 10 grandchildren.
