Ronny Raymond Dubois

SOUTH PORTLAND – Ronny Raymond Dubois, 73, of South Portland, passed away on Friday, Dec. 2, 2022, after a short, but courageous battle with cancer.

Ronny was born in Biddeford on Aug. 12, 1949, a son of Raymond and Doris (Dion) Dubois. After Doris’ death in 1959, Raymond remarried to Mignonne Dutil, who helped him continue to raise his sons. Ronny was educated in the Biddeford school systems, and was an alumnus of Biddeford High School.

Ronny married Penelope “Penny” Kennedy in 1979, and moved to South Portland where they raised their wonderful son, Brandon.

Ronny started his working career with F.H. Snow Canning Co. in Scarborough, a position he held for 10 years until the company moved to New Jersey. He was known for having a very strong work ethic, and continued to work in manufacturing throughout his life. He retired at the age of 64 while working for Electrodyne Systems, but continued to work part time there with his good friend, Peter Zinc, until the company was sold.

Ronny was a long time member at the Saco Yacht Club. He docked his first of many boats there, a mahogany Century, before he even had a car. Here he built lifelong friendships sharing his passion for boating and fishing every weekend. He had a passion for muscle cars, and often attended area car and boat shows.

Dearest to Ronny was being a dad and grandfather, and he cherished the time spent with his family. He will be deeply missed by many.

Ronny was predeceased by his brother, Dennis Dubois.

Ronny is survived by his son, Brandon Dubois and girlfriend Kyleen Dennison, Britney O’Keefe, who was like a daughter to him and mother of his grandsons Brenham Dubois and Bailey Dubois. He is also survived by his brother, Steve Dubois and wife Leaellen, their daughter Nicole Witt and son Derek Dubois; his late brother Dennis’ daughters Danielle Dubois and Desirae Hennessey; and several great-nieces and nephews.

Visiting hours will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with funeral service at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 8, at Cote Funeral Home Chapel, 87 James St., Saco. Burial will follow in St. Joseph Cemetery in Biddeford.
