Roland O. Dumont, longtime resident of Plainville, 95, passed away peacefully on Saturday January 13, 2019 with his loving wife Beatrice by his side. He was born in Ste. Rose du Degelis in Quebec, Canada to Albert Dumont and Ivonne Roy on April 26, 1923 where he spent his early years with his parents and eleven brothers and sisters. After working many intensely physical jobs including lumberjacking, Roland moved to Connecticut in 1963 with his newly wedded wife Beatrice with the promise of a good job and to pursue a new life. He found both of those and worked at New Britain machine for 25 years to tirelessly provide for his family. Throughout those years he made sure he kept in touch with his roots through summer and Christmas family vacations back to Canada. Later in life he enjoyed many years of travel and wintering in Florida as he explored his newfound passion for golf. Roland was a quietly strong, humble and proud man who always put his family first. He was loved and will be missed by many.
Roland was predeceased by his parents, his siblings Paul-Emile, Roger, Yvon, Rita, Georgette and Carmen. He is survived by his wife Beatrice of Farmington, his son Francis, daughter-in-law, Tania and grandson, Oliver of San Diego as well as his siblings, Jean, Laureat, Conrad, Lou and Rose Aimee.
