KEARNY, N.J. — Lou Kobus, field representative and ambassador at large for A.L. Wilson Chemical Co., has died at the age of 81, the company reports.
Kobus spent his career working in the laundry and drycleaning industry, first as an owner/operator in Lansing, Mich., and then briefly as a technician for an industrial laundry manufacturer. He worked for A.L. Wilson for the last 28 years.
Kobus always wore a smile and was a born entertainer and gifted accordion player, A.L. Wilson says, and he parlayed those skills into a second career as a supper-club performer.
Kobus is survived by his wife, Irene, as well as two sons and a daughter-in-law. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the charity of ones choice.
