Robert H. Dinan

AUBURN – Robert H. Dinan, 65, a Litchfield resident, died Wednesday, Jan. 19, 2022, at Hospice House of Androscoggin in Auburn following a courageous battle with cancer. He was born January 19, 1957, in Ludlow, Mass., 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 who were 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; one daughter, Faith Nadeau and her husband Randy Nadeau de Gray and their son Noah Williams; his 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, Guillaume Dinan; a nephew, William Holt; and many cousins, aunts and uncles. Messages of condolence can be sent to the family and a memorial video can be viewed at:
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 charity of your choice in honor of Bob Dinan.
