Date of Birth: November 17, 1927


Lewiston-Rudolphe Albert Dumais, 91, died on June 30, 2019 at the Androscoggin Hospice House in Auburn.

He was born on November 17, 1927 the son of Romeo and Marie Louise (Plante) Dumais.

Dad was a devoted Catholic and member of Holy Family Church all his life.

He owned and operated Maine Tackle, where he made fishing spools and flies that he sold out of his home and to local bait shops for several years.

Dad was an avid fisher and hunter. He also had many hobbies including
fly tying, photography and developing his own film/pictures, oil painting and furniture
making. Dad also built our family home on Ellis Street, Lewiston. He was a self-taught
electrician, plumber, auto mechanic and carpenter. There wasn't much Dad couldn't do.
He loved spending time with his wife Ann, their children and grandkids. Dad also loved a good joke and telling them. Often times laughing before the punchline, making everyone else laugh! His sense of humor and funny sayings will be fondly missed by all who knew him.

He proudly served his country in the United States Army during WWII. He was a Heavy Weapons Crewman stationed out of Ft. Lewis, Washington State. After leaving the service he worked for Knapp Shoe for 33 years. Early in those years, he was a TV repairman, working out of his home back in the day when TV's ran on tubes. Once he retired from Knapp Shoe he worked for Bedard's Pharmacy delivering Rx for several more years until Mom retired.

Dad was predeceased by his parents, two sisters-Cecile Siewert of Apple Valley CA, and Jane Rubino of Lewiston, and a brother-Joseph Dumais of Lewiston.
