Sept. 8, 1926 – Jan. 16, 2015

Donald Louis Puff, a high school physical education teacher and coach, died unexpectedly Friday in his Cheektowaga home. He was 88.

Mr. Puff began his teaching career at Cleveland Hill High School in Cheektowaga in 1954 and coached football, swimming and track. His teams won division championships in each sport.

His swimming teams, which included his sons, won 10 division titles and nine sectional championships. At one point, his Golden Eagle swimmers amassed a total of 66 straight victories.

He retired from the classroom in 1982, but continued to volunteer as an assistant varsity football coach until 2009.

Cleveland Hill High School named its swimming pool the Donald L. Puff Natatorium in his honor in 2011.

Born in Buffalo, he enlisted in the Marine Corps after graduating from Williamsville High School in 1944 and landed on Iwo Jima with the 4th Marine Division.

He was wounded after nine days of combat and evacuated. He was awarded the Purple Heart.

After the war, he attended Cortland State College, then re-enlisted in the Marines. Returning from service, he worked full-time as a riveter at Twin Coach Aircraft while attending the University of Buffalo, where he earned a master’s degree in 1954.

In retirement, he started a business as a comic book dealer and was a regular vendor at Antique World until 2010.

He was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and a Friend of Bill for more than 45 years.

His wife of 58 years, the former Adele Simister, died in 2008.

Survivors include two sons, Donald J. and Michael; a daughter, Jayme Borowiec; six grandchildren; and one great-granddaughter.

Services will be held at 11:30 a.m. Thursday in Dietrich Funeral Home, 2480 Kensington Ave., Amherst.

Visitation:  No prior visitation.

Service:  A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. March 1 at the Garret Club.

March 1, 1922 – Jan. 6, 2015

Ruth Dold Killeen, an accomplished pianist and singer, died on Jan. 6 at Hospice Buffalo’s inpatient facility after battling leukemia for several years. She was 92.

Mrs. Killeen taught piano and was sought after for her lively cabaret singing style, with a repertoire ranging from standards to novelty numbers, all of which she performed from memory. She entertained frequently at public and private social gatherings. She entertained as recently as Christmas, when she played for her family. Two YouTube tributes of her have been posted since her death.

A lifelong Buffalo resident, Mrs. Killeen was the widow of Henry W. Killeen, Jr., an assistant United States attorney. He died in 1984.

Subsequently she married former Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra concertmaster Joseph Wincenc, who died in 2003.

Mrs. Killeen was the second daughter of Paul Dold and his wife, Florence Talley Dold Smith. At the time of her birth, her family’s business, the Jacob Dold Meat Packing Company, was one of the largest meat packing companies in the country. In her later years, Mrs. Killeen would tell stories about the mile-long slaughterhouses the family owned on William Street, and of watching horse-drawn cutter races from the porch of her parents’ Richmond Avenue home.

She was one of the oldest living graduates of Buffalo Seminary and served for many years as a trustee of the school.

Mrs. Killeen spent a year at Hood College in Frederick, Md. Returning to Buffalo, she worked before her marriage as a copywriter for the Buffalo Courier-Express.

She and her first husband lived for many years on Highland Avenue. They were active participants in Buffalo society, with memberships at various times in the Buffalo Club, the Saturn Club, the Garret Club, the Buffalo Canoe Club and the Cherry Hill Club. The Killeens were involved with Westminster Presbyterian Church, and in her later years Mrs. Killeen became active in Trinity Episcopal Church.

She was also active in charitable and community service, volunteering as a pianist for Roswell Park and as a reader for the blind. A gifted athlete, she enjoyed golf and tennis. She also had a lifelong passion for theater and music.

At the time of her death, Mrs. Killeen was a resident of Canterbury Woods in Williamsville. Before moving there, she lived for many years at 1088 Delaware Ave.

She is survived by a son, Henry W. Killeen, III; and two daughters, Ruth Killeen Mullen and Katherine Killeen Ashton; and six grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. March 1 at the Garret Club.

June 7, 1924 – Jan. 8, 2015

Louise A. McPartlan knew her husband’s dream was to open a restaurant.

He had been saving up for a car, when a bar went for sale in 1955.

“If you don’t try it, you’ll never know,” she told the late James H. McPartlan.

And for the next 35 years, they found out with McPartlan’s, later known as McPartlan’s Corner.

Mrs. McPartlan, of Amherst, died Thursday in Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital in Amherst following a lengthy illness. She was 90.

Born in Philadelphia, she moved to the Buffalo area in the 1930s and was a graduate of South Park High School.

She was vice president of McPartlan’s Restaurant, which operated at 2434 South Park Ave. from 1955 to 1961. The restaurant moved to 1586 South Park Ave. in 1961, and found its final home on Wehrle Drive in Amherst in 1971.

Mrs. McPartlan enjoyed needlework, crocheting and quilting.

Survivors include three daughters, Kathy Kuczmanski, Peggy Galuski and Maureen Rivera; five sons, James, Kevin, Joseph, Neal and Robert; a brother, John Frentzel; 20 grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 11 a.m. Monday at Christ the King Catholic Church, 30 Lamarck Drive, Snyder.
