A graveside service for William H. Dundas II, will be held at the Dundas Family Plot at St. Mary's Cemetery, 375 Park Avenue, Corning, NY on August 21, 2008 at 9:00 a.m.

William was a long time resident of the Corning/Painted Post area. He was born in Keesville, NY on March 9, 1925. As a young man growing up during the depression, he quit school to help support his family. William and his family moved to Corning in the 1940's. He started working at the Corning Glass Works and remained there for over 40 years. During that time, he met and married the former Beverly Flynn, who preceded him in death in 1986.

Together they had four children; Thomas, Janice, William III, and Duane. Thomas and William preceded him in death in 1946 and 1981, respectively. After the death of his wife, Beverly, and retirement from the Corning Glass Works, he moved to Hudson, NY. He remained there till his death on May 8, 2008.

From 1948 to 1984, William served with pride in the U.S. Army National Guard and Reserves. In 1978, while on two weeks active duty training at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO, William tested and was awarded his high school diploma.

William was a lifetime member of the American Legion and the NRA. In his spare time, when there was any, he also taught Hunter and Gun Safety courses, which he continued until two years before his death.

William is survived by one son, Duane F. Dundas of Corning; one daughter, Janice (Mrs. William) Beaver of Minot, ND; one son-in-law, William M. Beaver of Minot, ND; grandchildren, Shawn, Thomas, Christopher and Jamie; great-grandchildren, Addison, McKinzey, Sandra and Ryan; great-great-granddaughter, Victoria; brothers-in-law, James Flynn of Bath, NY and Douglas Coville of Cortland, NY; sisters-in-law, Patricia (Flynn) Quigley of Corning and Maureen (Kelly) Flynn of Bath; and several nieces and nephews.
