Obituary for Philip Dumas

GRAFTON: Philip E. Dumas, 80, passed away April 18, 2024 at The Elaine Center in Hadley, MA after a lengthy illness. His wife Susan (Johnston) predeceased him. He leaves his daughter Dawn (Dumas) Billington and her husband Philip, grandchildren Justin Krawczyk and his wife Barbara, Jessica Kraweic and her husband Dan, Kasey Teixeira and her husband Fernando, AJ Krawczyk and his wife Kirsten and Zachary Zastawny, one great-grandson Mason Krawczyk and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his daughter Holly and brother Ted.

Phil was born in Woonsocket, RI, daughter of the late Elenore (Landry) and Theodore Dumas. Phil lived most of his life in Grafton where he was devoted in service as its Health Inspector, was on The Board of Health and also a 50-year member of the Grafton Lions Club and the North Grafton Fish & Game and also the Worcester County Sportsmen League. Phil also worked for many years as a Public Health Inspector for the City of Worcester until his retirement.

Away from work Phil was the quintessential sportsman. He was happiest fishing, hunting, camping or gardening. At home you would surely find his beloved dog “Indy” at his side who was his faithful companion even after he transitioned to nursing home care, and when he wasn’t outdoors he was likely enjoying a favorite book.

All are welcome to gather with Phil’s family and friends Saturday May 4th from 9:30-11:00am at Roney Funeral Home 152 Worcester St. N. Grafton, MA 01536 followed by a service of remembrance at 11am in the funeral home. In lieu of flowers please honor Phil by planting something beautiful this Spring and enjoy it for seasons to come or make a donation to The Grafton Lions Club 68 Brigham Hill Road Grafton MA 01519. A Book of Memories to share a message with his family is available at:
