George Danor, 64, a retired advertising photographer for The Washington Star, died Saturday at the Washington Adventist Hospital after a heart attack.

He had retired two years ago. Prior to joining The Star, he had been a news photographer with The Washington Times-Herald.

Born in New York City, Mr. Danor came to the Washington area in about 1939. He worked for the Office of War Information before becoming a newspaper photographer.

He was a member of the White House News Photographers Association and the U.S. Senate Press Photographer Gallery.

He had been active in the Chillum-Adelphi Volunteer Fire Department. For a number of years, he had appeared as the clown, "Uncle George," at hospitals in this area. He was an instructor for the Red Cross.

He is survived by his wife, Cora Sylvia, of the home in Silver Spring; two daughters, Arleen Goldstein, of Tucson, Ariz., and Esther Deborah Ruderman, of Silver Spring; a son, Gary A., of Los Angeles; a brother David and a sister, Sadie Danishefsky, both of New York City, and six grandchildren.

The family suggests that expressions of sympathy may be in the form of contributions to AMC Cancer P.e search of Denver.
