PHILADEPHIA — Nicholas Kashkashian Sr., president of the Philadephia-based distributorship Frankford Associates, died suddenly of a heart attack at his office last month. He was 66.
Kashkashian was born in Bristol, Pa., and graduated from Temple University. He served in the Army Reserve for several years before marrying Jane Maxwell, who preceded him in death in 2007.
Joining his father in the business, Kashkashian helped expand Frankford into an international name. “He was dedicated to the business,” son Nicholas Kashkashian Jr. told the Philadelphia Inquirer. Nick continues to operate Frankford with his brother, Eric, and uncle, Ronald.
The elder Kashkashian is survived by his sons, a granddaughter and two brothers. Donations in Kashkashian’s name may be made to the Talia Kashkashian Education Fund, c/o Wachovia Bank, 4259 W. Swamp Road, Doylestown, PA 18902.
