Robert Gerald Dumford

December 25, 1930 — September 29, 2023

 

In Loving Memory of a beloved Mason, Ohio resident, Robert Gerald Dumford, who was born on December 25, 1930, to Leroy and Besse Dumford. It is with heavy hearts that we announce his passing on September 29, 2023, surrounded by his loved ones.

Robert will forever be remembered as a loving husband of 69 years to his devoted wife, Faye Dumford. He was a cherished father to his children, Susan Jayne Gardner and Robert Wayne (Diana) Dumford, a dear brother to the late Ida Mae Smith, and a doting grandfather to Sara (Scott) Johnson, Codi (Razi) Rahman, Anthony (Jennifer) Gardner, and Andrew (Allison) Gardner. His legacy extends to his great-grandchildren, Alexa, Zoe, Jacoby, Aiden, Carson, Nori, and his upcoming great-grandson, Emir Robert.

A lifelong member of Mason, Robert was deeply involved in his community. He was an esteemed member of Heritage Presbyterian Church, where he also shared his voice in the church choir. Robert had a passion for preserving the past and was an active member of the Mason Historical Society. Additionally, he was a dedicated member of Oakley Masonic Lodge #668 and The Scottish Rite Valley of Cincinnati.

Robert found joy in various activities, including golf, bowling, and passionately supporting his favorite teams - UC basketball, the Cincinnati Reds, and the Cincinnati Bengals.
