Marinos Vourderis, R. I. P.

NY Daily News: Marinos Vourderis, a poor Greek immigrant who became the millionaire king of Italian ices, has died. He was 97. 

Vourderis, founder of Marinos Italian Ices, died Tuesday at his home in Jamaica Estates, Queens, his daughter, Margie Hackford, said Wednesday. 

“He was amazing,” Hackford said of her father. “He had the Midas touch; everything he touched turned to gold.”
