1967 – 2016

AUBURN — Roland M. Dumont, 48, of Auburn died on Thursday, April 7, at home surrounded by his loving family, after a long, heroic struggle with cancer.

Roland was born in Lewiston, on June 17, 1967, the youngest son of Lucien Dumont and Audrey A. (Hall) Dumont. He attended Auburn public schools, graduating from Edward Little High School and Central Maine Community College with a degree in building trades. He worked as a finish carpenter for several local cabinetmaking firms, finally becoming the lunatic taxman, a tax assessor for O’Donnell.

On June 28, 1997, Roland married his high school sweetheart, Stacy Smyth. Together, they raised their son Branden, the pride and joy of Roland’s life. Stacy passed away from breast cancer in 2005, leaving an enormous void in his life, which he filled spending time with his son and best friend, Branden, who enjoyed many aimless drives to nowhere.

In 2008, Roland was diagnosed with cancer. With Dr. Aronson’s guidance, treatments were implemented that brought him several happy years of life.

In 2012, he met and fell in love with Donna Thibodeau. She became his fiancée and ally in his struggle, staying by his side through his darkest days.

Roland, an avid outdoorsman, loved hunting and fly-fishing with his brothers, cousins and son. He enjoyed learning about spirituality and his place in the Universe.

He is survived by his son, Branden; his devoted, loving fiancée, Donna Thibodeau of Auburn; brother, William “Bill” Dumont and his wife, Laurie, of Minot; brother, Richard “J.R.” Libby and his wife, Heidi, of Greene; sister, Bonnie Gallop and her companion, Norman, of Lewiston; brother, Gordon Libby and his companion, Stacy, of Lewiston; father- and mother-in-law, Jim and Judy Smyth of Poland; brother-in-law, Jaime Smyth and his wife, Darcy, of Lewiston; his beloved dachshund, Simba; and several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Roland was predeceased by his beloved wife, Stacy; and his mother and father.
