George Nasdor, 91, founder of G&D Imports

April 13, 2005

George Nasdor, a former nightclub owner and partner in a Pikesville importing company, died Monday of Alzheimer's disease at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. The Timonium resident was 91.

Mr. Nasdor was born in Ostrolenka, Poland, and in 1916 immigrated with his family to Baltimore. He was raised on East Lombard Street and graduated from City College.

He worked in the circulation department of the News-Post before enlisting in the Army and served with an infantry unit during World War II.

Returning to Baltimore, he purchased the Ambassador Night Club at Fayette and Washington streets in East Baltimore. He sold it in the late 1950s, and during the 1960s worked as a wine and liquor salesman with Frederick P. Winner Ltd. Distributing Co.

He was a co-founder in 1972 of G&D Imports, national distributors of Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut, a mixture of coconut and natural cane sugar used in the preparation of pina coladas and other tropical drinks.

After selling the business to Borden's in 1985, Mr. Nasdor remained as a consultant until retiring in 1987. Diversified Foods, Inc. now owns the company.

Mr. Nasdor was an avid Orioles and Ravens fan and always wore an Orioles cap, said his wife of 53 years, the former Patricia Cuddihee.

Services will be held at noon today at Sol Levinson & Bros., 8900 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville.

In addition to his wife, Mr. Nasdor is also survived by a son, Harry T. Nasdor of Jacksonville, Fla.; two daughters, Denise Pierce of Fort Worth, Texas, and Debra L. Nasdor of Forest Hill; a brother, David Nasdor of Baltimore; two sisters, Estelle Silverman of Pikesville and Shirley Gordon of Philadelphia; and five grandchildren.
