NEW YORK — Howard Kshonz, a salesman in the apparel industry for more than 35 years, died April 30 at his home in Queens, N.Y., according to his friend, Ronald Goodman. He was 60.
Goodman said the cause of death was a heart attack.
Most recently, Kshonz was a sales associate at sportswear manufacturer Anage Inc., where he had worked for a year. During his career, he also worked at J’envie and Vantage Point.
“The way he showed a line was very, very natural,” said Goodman, sales manager at Starington. “He did it with a very friendly, easygoing attitude that buyers respected. He was fun to be with. Even when we had slow days in markets, Howard would come out with a joke and just break everybody up.”
Kshonz is survived by his wife, Linda; two sons, Todd and Josh, and two granddaughters.
