Louis Lambrinos, 62, physical therapy director

Louis Lambrinos, a native of Greece and former director of physical therapy services at then-Church Home and Hospital, died Monday in Towson. Mr. Lambrinos had recently been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease. He was 62.

He was born on the island of Astypalaia, Greece, which was occupied by Germany during World War II. Many of his neighbors died of starvation.

Mr. Lambrinos immigrated to Baltimore in 1962.

"When people talk about the immigrant spirit, to me he really embodied that," said his daughter Regina Hershey of Baltimore. "He was an extremely hard worker but never, ever complained."

Mr. Lambrinos married Georgia Tountas of Baltimore in 1964. He took a job with H&S Bakery and then worked as a machinist for Ward Machinery in Cockeysville from 1963 to 1973. He attended Morgan State University from 1970 to 1973, then graduated from the University of Maryland Physical Therapy School in 1975.

He was director of physical therapy at Church Home and Hospital from 1976 to 1980, then worked in private practice for 14 years before joining Physiotherapy Associates.

In addition to his wife and daughter, Mr. Lambrinos is survived by another daughter, Rini Lambrinos; a son, Paul Lambrinos; and two grandchildren, all of Baltimore.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, 2504 Cub Hill Road, Baltimore.

George Edward Adams, a machinist at the old Western Electric Co. plant in East Baltimore for more than 30 years, died Nov. 20 of undetermined causes at Fort Howard Veterans Affairs Medical Center. He was 76.

For many years, he was a communicant at St. Edward Roman Catholic Church, 901 Poplar Grove St., where a Mass of Christian burial is scheduled for 6: 30 p.m. Sunday.

He is survived by his wife, the former Gloria Booker, whom he married in 1947; a son, Harold Adams; two daughters, Anna Maria Adams and Sharon Emily Baker; a brother, Raymond Adams; a sister, Louise Adams; six grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. All are of Baltimore.
