The City is remembering a Torrance legend this week.

William Wright Dundore, the City’s former Finance Director died of natural causes earlier this month. He was 94.

Dundore passed away peacefully at his home in Torrance, surrounded by his family. Prior to Torrance, Dundore had a long career in finance at the State Controller’s office, as well as the cities of San Marino and Santa Monica.

He retired from the City of Torrance in 1986, after 22 years of service.

Dundore was known for his kind and generous nature and will be missed by many here in Torrance. A private ceremony will be held Friday at Green Hills Memorial Park.
