George T. W. Reinhardt, a retired Sunpapers printer whose career spanned 50 years, died in his sleep Tuesday at Genesis Perring Parkway Center. The longtime Cedarcroft resident was 92.

Mr. Reinhardt, who was born and raised in East Baltimore, attended Polytechnic Institute.

In 1930, he went to work in the Sunpapers' composing room, then located in the newspaper's old Sun Square building at Baltimore and Charles streets. He retired in 1980.

He was a member for 70 years of Columbia Typographical Union 101-12.

Mr. Reinhardt had been an avid duckpin bowler and golfer, and in his younger days, he played softball for the Chester Pleasure Club, Civil Democratic Club and the Union Printers.

He enjoyed listening to barbershop quartets and piano and organ music.

Mr. Reinhardt lived in Cedarcroft for 51 years before moving several years ago to Kirkwood House, a seniors complex on Loch Raven Boulevard.

His wife of 69 years, the former Catherine Ziegler, died in 2007.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. today at the Leonard J. Ruck Funeral Home, 5305 Harford Road.

Surviving are a daughter, Patricia M. Blackwell of Parkville; and three grandchildren.
