Giordano of Westwood used his love of gadgetry and electronics on a creative team at Kenner Products, where he was partly responsible for the invention of the "Baby Alive" doll and the "Three-Minute Oven." He died Saturday at St. Francis-St. George Hospital in Westwood after a long illness. He was 63. He talked about his toy-inventing philosophy in an interview in 1973: "You want the toy to teach the child something, up to a point. There should be a puzzle involved. Once it is solved, the child should be able to add something of his own creation." "It didn't take him long to learn anything," said his wife, Betty Giordano of Westwood. "He could make and build things just as good as he could design them." A business associate, Corky Steiner, described Mr. Giordano as a creative genius and said he was considered one of the premier designers in his era. "Baby Alive" was one of the top-selling dolls in the industry, Steiner said. Mr. Giordano also worked on the team that developed the "Playback Organ" and toys based on television's Six Million Dollar Man during his 25-year tenure with Kenner. Mr. Giordano would often make toys at home for his children. A son, Barry, Burd of Westwood, particularly remembers a cardboard television where his father would show slides. In 1958, Mr. Giordano founded the Star Center, a sheltered workshop run by the Hamilton County Council for Retarded Children on Harrison Avenue in Cheviot. He also served as executive director and educational coordinator of the Mothers of Retarded Youths Foundation. Mr. Giordano was born in Clifton, graduated from Hughes High School and George Giordano Hamilton County deputy in the 1960s and for the past several decades he also worked part time in the Cheviot Police Department. Kevin Broderick, a Cheviot patrol officer, said Mr. Giordano was an upbeat person and was the last officer to have a "walking beat" checking local businesses. "He was constantly in a good mood . . . always had a good word about everybody here," he said. Mr. Giordano was a past commander of Disabled American Veterans Post 1, and a member of several other organizations, including the Clem Beckman Post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Scottish Rite, Western Hills Lodge 762 F&AM, the American Society of Tool and Manufacturing Engineers, and the Amateur Radio Association of Greater Cincinnati. Also surviving are three other sons, Kenny Burd, Bobby Burd and Frankie Giordano, all of Westwood; four daughters, Donna Rist, Barbara Widener, Frani Cole and Tina Giordano, all of Westwood; and a sister, Katherine Tabor of Delhi Township. Visitation will be from 5 to 9 p.m. today at Gump-Holt Funeral Home, 3440 Glen-more Ave., Cheviot. Mass of Christian burial will be said at 10 a.m. Wednesday at St. Catharine Church, 2848 Fischer Place, Westwood. Memorials can be made to the American Cancer Society, 3372 Central Parkway, Cincinnati 45225.
