Obituary of Alexander Roland Dumas

With deep sorrow, we share the passing of our beloved father, Alex (Shorty) Roland Dumas, who departed from us on March 11, 2024, in Fort St. John, BC.

Alex, affectionately known as Shorty, graced this world on July 10, 1945, in McMurray, now recognized as Fort McMurray, as the second child of Josephine and Roland Dumas.

Throughout his life, Alex devoted himself to the art of trucking. From hauling logs with his own rig to working for Hansen Logging and concluding his illustrious career with RJ Nielsen, he left an indelible mark on the industry. Yet, beyond the confines of the road, Alex was a man of many passions.

Hockey coursed through his veins, and he proudly showcased his skills in Vanderhoof, Fort St. James, Houston and Burns Lake during his younger days.

Later in life, he found equal joy in watching his grandson Aiden in minor hockey, often lending his expertise on the bench alongside the coaching staff, and volunteering at the rink.

Dexter and his dad were often found watching the game together.

In 2019, Alex was blessed with the arrival of his granddaughter, Delilah, whose every milestone brought him immeasurable happiness. He cherished witnessing her spirited playfulness and her blossoming love for sports, especially as she scampered around the house with unbridled energy.

Alex leaves behind a legacy of love and family. He is survived by his sister Josephine, daughter Dawn, son Dexter, step children Delorus, Diane, Dale, Denise, and Daryl, grandchildren Aiden, Delilah, Cassidy and great-granddaughter Raven-Dawn.

His memory will also be cherished by  a host of step-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

Now, Alex is reunited with his beloved wife, Georgina, and his parents, Josephine and Roland, in a place of eternal peace.

Though he may have departed from this earthly realm, the love he shared continues to resonate within our hearts, a gentle reminder of the profound impact he had on each of our lives.


A celebration of life will be held at a later date, where we will gather to honor Alex's memory and bid him farewell with the reverence he deserves.
