    • Hornell, N.Y. - Joel Dean "Papa" Burdett, Jr., 81, passed away late Wednesday afternoon (March 2, 2011) at his home on Bald Hill Road.
      Born in Hornell on Dec. 23, 1929, he was a son of the late Joel D. Burdett Sr. and Polly Tanner Burdett. In 1953 he was married in Painted Post to the former Geraldine P.

Besides his parents and wife, he was also predeceased by his grandson, Shane Burdett; his sister, Marianna Burdett; also his three brothers, Douglas, Hobart and Paul Burdett, Sr.
      A lifelong resident of Hornell, Dean was a graduate of Alfred-Almond Central School, class of 1947. He proudly served his country with the U.S. Army during the Korean War from 1951 until his honorable discharge in 1953.

      Dean was a member of the Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the Quarter Century Club of NYSEG as well as the Arthur H. Cunningham American Legion Post No. 440 in Hornell.
      An avid woodworker, he also enjoyed being a "foreman." He loved his grandchildren and great-grandson and will be remembered most of all for his generosity and for being the "greatest man ever."
