Noubar M. Dadourian, 59, a printing specialist in the planning section of the Government Printing Office, died Wednesday at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda after suffering a stroke.
He had worked at the GPO since coming to Washington as a printer in 1952.
Mr. Dadourian was born in Turkey, and moved to Philadelphia with his family as a child in 1923.
After serving in the Pacific with the Navy in World War II. he worked as a journeyman printer in Philadelphia and Scranton, Pa., until coming here.
Mr. Dadourian was a member of Montgomery Lodge No. 195 and King Solomon Lodge No. 31, of the Masons and of Montgomery Commandery No. 13 of the Knights Templar. He was a past grand high priest of James F. Allen Lodge No. 33 of the Royal Arch Massons and belonged to the Tall Cedars of Lebanon.
He was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion Post No. 105 and Rockville United Methodist Church.
He is survived by his wife, the former Mary Bedrosian, of the home in Rockville; two sons, Alan R., of Silver Spring, and David W., of Rockville; and a brother, Berj, and two sisters, Arpine Jeryan and Virginia Mangasarian, all of Philadelphia.
