Robert H. Dinan

AUBURN – Robert H. Dinan, 65, a Litchfield resident, died Wednesday, Jan. 19, 2022, at Hospice House of Androscoggin in Auburn, Maine, following a courageous battle with cancer. He was born on January 19, 1957 in Ludlow, Massachusetts, the son of William L. Dinan, Jr. and Gloria F. (Vachon) Dinan. He attended Lawrence High School in Fairfield, Maine. On July 4, 1997, in Greene, Maine, he married Eileen G. Martin. For several years he and his wife Eileen owned and operated Bob’s Discount Stores of Maine and later owned Off Price Stores. Bob’s real passion since childhood was Christmas auctions, which he held every year. This passion was animated and maintained by all those who supported him throughout his journey. The joy Bob and Eileen felt at having done the bidding for so many years is beyond words. These auctions were Bob’s way of keeping the excitement alive. Bob and Eileen’s generosity was very infectious and with the help of so many amazing customers, they were able to help many people less fortunate or in need of help to have a much better Christmas. Bob loved anything with a motor, cars, motorcycles and ATVs. His grandchildren were his world and he really enjoyed his time with them. Bob will be greatly missed by all. He is survived by his wife, Eileen G. Dinan of Litchfield, two sons and their families, Bobby Dinan and his partner Nicole Nelson of Minot and their children, Lincoln, Oliver, Libby and Jillian Dinan; Lucus Dinan and his partner Michelle Shaker of Hebron and their children, Aaron Griffin and Lailyanna Dinan; a daughter, Faith Nadeau and her husband Randy Nadeau of Gray and their son Noah Williams, her sister, Patricia Overlook of Augusta, several aunts, uncles and cousins ​​and too many lifelong friends and close friends to mention. He was predeceased by his parents, William and Gloria Dinan, his brother, William Dinan and a nephew, William Holt, and numerous cousins, aunts and uncles. Bob was a very private person, so with great consideration and respecting his wishes, instead of a service or celebration, celebrate his life with a random act of kindness or donate to a charity in your choice in honor of Bob Dinan. Messages of condolence can be sent and a memorial video can be viewed at: by BRAGDON-FINLEY FUNERAL HOME, 707 Main Street, Monmouth, Maine.
