BROWNVILLE JCT - Eldrick "Al" J. Dumont, 74, husband of Kathryn (Lutte) Dumont, passed away unexpectedly Aug. 14, 2010, at his home. Al was born July 22, 1936, in Wallagrass Plantation, the son of Claire Corriveau and Edmund Dumont. When he was 5 years old, his family moved to Saco and he attended schools there. He joined the U.S. Navy at age 17, and proudly served his country for 20 years. He was stationed all throughout the U.S. and abroad, and did two tours of duty in Vietnam, where he earned the Purple Heart, Navy Good Conduct Medal, Navy Achievement Medal, Vietnamese Gallantry Cross, National Defense Service Medal, Navy Expert Rifle/Pistol Medal, Vietnam Honor Medal and more. Recently, he was awarded the Maine Silver Star. Al always said his purpose in life was to help other people, especially veterans and he spent many hours doing just that. He loved anything that was a challenge and usually found answers. He had been an avid hunter and fisherman for many years, and after his retirement, he became a Maine Guide. Al is survived by his wife of 27 years, Kathryn; and a son, Christopher and his girlfriend, Corin Hall, of West Kennebunk, and their black lab, Remi, who Al loved. A graveside memorial service will be conducted noon Monday, Aug. 23, at Maine Veterans Cemetery, Augusta, with the Rev. Michele St. Cyr officiating. Arrangements are in the care of Lary Funeral Home, Milo. Messages of condolence and memories may be expressed at www.laryfuneralhome.com.
