    Notes 
    • HORNELL -- William J. "Bill" Burdett, 56, of 2076 Edwards Rd., Waterloo, formerly of Hornell, died unexpectedly on Wednesday (Feb. 12, 2003) at Geneva General Hospital, where he was taken after being stricken at home. He was a graduate of Hornell High School (class of 1964), Alfred State College (class of 1967) and R.I.T. (class of 1969).
      Bill entered the US Army in Nov. 1970, and was commissioned from Officer Candidate School at Fort Benning, Ga. He trained and instructed the Basic Training Troops during the Vietnam War from 1971-1973.
      For the past 29 years, he was employed at several manufacturing companies including Chesebrough-Ponds, Avon, and Burnes of Boston (Hallmark Inc.). For the past 11 years Bill served as vice president and plant manager of ZOTOS International of Geneva, a company specializing in the manufacturing and distribution of salon hair care products.
      On Sept. 6, 1969, Bill was married to the former Beverly Allis, who survives. Together they raised, trained and raced greyhounds in Massachusetts, where they resided from 1985-1993. He will be sadly missed by his wife of 33 years; his loving family; his beloved pet dogs, Smiley, Girly, Flynn and Sean; as well as the many people whose lives he touched in his personal and working relationships.
      Bill's work ethic, dedication and sense of humor were always present, even through the tense and difficult times of his life. Although he was considered a "hard worker," he liked to find time to play a round of golf or take a trip to New York City to catch a Broadway Play or Broadway Show.
      In addition to his wife, survivors include his brother, Leo "Bud" (Annette) Burdett of Depew; two nieces, Hilary Burdett and Kristina Burdett; one nephew, Christopher Burdett; two aunts; and several cousins. There will be no prior calling hours. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday at 1 p.m. at St. Ann's Church, with burial in St. Mary's Cemetery.
