Paul E. Dumas, 86 years old, died peacefully and quietly in his favorite chair Sunday morning, Sept. 24, 2017. He was well loved and respected by many and will be deeply missed by all.
Paul is survived by his children, Donna Corbeil (Stephen), Scott Young, Debbie Young, Denise Young and Diane Rivera. He will be greatly missed by his three grandchildren, Chris, Jennifer and Gabriella. The great-grandchildren will grow up hearing the stories we all remember of Paul.
He is also survived by his four sisters, Irene McCarthy, Maxine Brownell, Nancy Tyrrell and Barbara Marion as well as their extended families.
Paul was predeceased by his wife, Joyce, in 1979; and his second, wife, Ruth in 2014.
Paul was a Renaissance man who dabbled in many things and he worked at a variety of jobs and businesses during his lifetime. His true passion, however, was the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and Veterans, in general.
Paul envisioned a Veterans Park to honor Veterans of all ages from the Revolutionary War to the present day. This became a reality at the Plattsburgh Barracks on the Oval. This is a living continuing memorial to the service of all Veterans and a testament to the love of Paul.
Calling hours will be held from 4 to 7 P.M., Sept. 29, 2017 at Heald Funeral Home in Plattsburgh with the funeral service to follow at 7 P.M. Burial with full military honors will take place 1 P.M. Monday, Oct. 2, 2017 at the Veteran's Memorial Cemetery in Randolph Center, VT.
In lieu of flowers, please feel free to send donations to the North Country Honor Flight Program or the DAV.
