Donald A. Dashnau Jr., archer and builder

Donald A. Dashnau, Jr., 55, of Oswego, passed away Wednesday Jan. 1.

He was a life resident of Oswego. Don was a pipefitter, welder, carpenter and roofer before working at Huhtamaki for several years.

He was an avid hunter, spent a lot of time in his archery workshop and was a member of Deerslayers Bowman’s Association in Oswego.

Don was very proud of his daughters and grandchildren — when he was down they always brought his spirit up.

He was predeceased by his grandparents, William T. and Luella M. Donaldson.

Don is survived by his daughters, Donielle Dashnau  and Courtney Dashnau both of Fulton; his companion, Mary Meeker of Fulton; his mother, Lora Mae Martin of Eustis, Fl.; his father, Donald A. Dashnau, Sr., of Oswego; a brother, Jerry Himes of Eustis, Fl.; a cousin, Jack Lewis, who was like a brother to Don; an aunt, Jean Lewis; uncle and aunt, Robert and Patricia Coe all of Oswego; and three grandchildren, Boston Dashnau, Carson and Louella Chetney.

Calling hours were Monday at Foster Funeral Home, 910 Fay St., Fulton. Graveside services will be in the spring at Mount Adnah Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Mr. Dashnau may be made to the Pentecostals of Fulton, (Pastor David Bassette), 100 Cayuga St., Fulton, NY 13069.
