WINTHROP ? Our beloved Bumpie, 84, left us Sunday morning, Feb. 3, 2002, at St. Mary's Hospital in Lewiston. He had been a patient of the Lewiston Auburn Kidney Center for the past six years. \r\r\n\r\r\nBumpie was born in St. Come, Quebec, Canada, April 4, 1917, the son of Anthime and Ernestine (Cliche) Belanger. \r\r\n\r\r\nHe attended Winthrop schools and served in the African and European Campaign as a master sergeant during World War II. \r\r\n\r\r\nHe married Dorothy Lewia, Nov. 22, 1945, and was employed by H.H. Harriman and Bud Clough for many years, before starting his own plumbing business. He and his wife owned and operated Belanger's Bakery, and prior to his retirement he operated E.M. Lowe Drive-In Theater in Manchester. \r\r\n\r\r\nHe was a communicant of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church and a member of Alfred W. Maxwell Jr. Post 40 in Winthrop. \r\r\n\r\r\nHe enjoyed spending time at home and at Wells Beach with his family and friends. \r\r\n\r\r\nBumpie was predeceased by his parents, a brother, Robert, and a son, William Lucien. \r\r\n\r\r\nSurvivors include his wife of 56 years, Dorothy Belanger, of Winthrop; his two daughters and their families, Sandy and Dave St. Hilaire, Cheryl and Dan Trow, and grandchildren, Debbie and Kevin Burgess, Dave and Jenn St. Hilaire, Dan St. Hilaire, Mike and Maria Trow, Norman Trow, Matt Trow and Jessica Vigue. Bumpie's 10 greatgrands were a joy to him. They are Renee, Ashley, Davy, Josh, Nikkie, Shari, Katy, Luke, Kayla and Abbey; an aunt, Marie Dostie, of Winthrop; a sister, Gertrude Mayo, of Augusta; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. \r\r\n\r\r\nRelatives and friends are invited to visit from 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5, at Roberts Funeral Home, 62 Bowdoin St., Winthrop. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6, at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Winthrop, with the Rev. Brian Blanchette as celebrant. \r\r\n\r\r\nBurial will be held in the spring in the family plot at Glenside Cemetery in Winthrop. \r\r\n\r\r\nIn lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Lewiston Auburn Kidney Center, 710 Main St., Lewiston 04240.
