Charles R. Bardoff

April 14, 1992

Charles R. Bardoff, a retired wholesale appliance and advertising salesman who had helped operate a family hardware business in Hampden, died Sunday of emphysema at his home in Silver Spring. He was 64.

Services for Mr. Bardoff, a Baltimore native, were being held today at the Danzansky-Goldberg Memorial Chapels in Rockville.

He retired about one year ago as a salesman for the Zamoiski Co., where he had returned to work in the late 1980s. He had been on that company's sales staff from the late 1950s until the mid-1970s.

Between the two periods with Zamoiski, he was vice president of Douglas Distributing Co., a Washington appliance firm. He was in the advertising business with his own agency in Washington for a time and later sold for an agency in Los Angeles. Before joining Zamoiski, he was a partner in Bardoff's Hardware Store, a Hampden business started by his father.

Mr. Bardoff was a graduate of City College. He served in the Army during the Korean War.

He is survived by his wife, Edith M. Bardoff; one son, Michael Bardoff of Baltimore; one daughter, Gina Jarboe of Hyattsville; two sisters, Frona Bardoff Allen of Baltimore and Rosa Lea Finstein of Pikesville; one brother, Morris Bardoff of Los Angeles; and one granddaughter, Stacey Lutz of Hagerstown.

The family suggested memorial contributions to the Jewish Social Service Hospice in Rockville.
