Funeral services for Samuel Franklin Purdy, former co-owner of Baltimore's University Inn, will be held Saturday at the Hardesty Funeral Home, 12 Ridgley Ave. in Annapolis.

Mr. Purdy, a lifelong resident of Annapolis, died Wednesday at Anne Arundel Medical Center of heart failure. He was 83.

From 1929-1933, Mr. Purdy worked at the old "Chop House" on Main Street in Annapolis, and worked at the Royal Restaurant on West Street until 1937.

For the next eight years, he co-owned the University Inn, on Baltimore's Lombard Street, with Paul Stoinoff. Mr. Purdy married the former Rosalie Sears in 1935.

After serving in the Army from 1943-1945, he again joined Mr. Stoinoff in opening Paul's Restaurant in Riva. When that restaurant closed in 1974, Mr. Purdy began a decade of managing the Annapolis Elks club. He married his second wife, Marion Bray, in 1972.

Mr. Purdy was a member of several community organizations, including the Annapolis and Glen Burnie Elk lodges, The Boumi Shrine Temple, and the national and local chapters of the American Association of Retired Persons.

He was a member of Calvary United Methodist Church in Annapolis.

He is survived by his wife, Marian Bray Purdy; a son, C. Gordon Bray, of Tucson, Ariz.; a daughter, Darlene B. Moore, of Glen Burnie; seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Born in South Korea, Mr. Kim came to Glen Burnie eight years ago, where he worked for Rheemax Industrial Gloves.

Mr. Kim's hobbies included Oriental chess, fishing and family activities. He is survived by two children, Yong Chol Kim of Ellicott City and Yong Wook Kim of Millersville; a brother, Yo Pung Kim, of California; and two grandchildren in Catonsville.
