BRUNSWICK – Henry (Bob) Dionne passed away Wednesday, April 24, 2019, at Midcoast Hospital in Brunswick after a long illness. He was born in Brunswick, Feb. 11, 1937, the eldest of five children born to Henry and Anne (Sullivan) Dionne.

Bob graduated Bridgewater Teacher’s College in 1959. There he met his wife, Virginia (Ginny). The couple wed senior year, on April 19, and spent 55 happy years together. He was a loving father to sons Ronald and Robert, grandfather to Ronald’s children Max, Kathleen, and William, and great-grandfather to Max’s daughter Joanie Bea.

Bob loved two things above all in life — Maine and his beloved Ginny, and since his retirement at age 55 from a career teaching middle school English in Long Island, N.Y., he was able to enjoy those things to their fullest.

Bob was predeceased by his parents; his wife Ginny; and his son Robert. He leaves behind his son Ronald and family; and his siblings Nancy Medeiros, Ellen Pihl, Alfred Dionne, Michael Dionne, and Joseph Dionne, and their families.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. at All Saints Parish, St. John’s Catholic Church, 144 Pleasant St., Brunswick.  Burial will follow at St. John’s Cemetery, Brunswick.
