PARAMUS, NJ — A World War II resident from Bergen County was laid to rest Tuesday with military honors at the George Washington Memorial Park Cemetery in Paramus. Eugene Walker Dednam, who lived in Hackensack his whole life, died on April 5 at the age of 100 according to his obituary from Warner-Wozniak Funeral Service.

Dednam was an only child, and never married or had children. No one came to claim his body, so Bergen County medical examiners and Sheriff’s Office employees looked for a living relative, as reported.
