BELMONT — Stanley Leroy Dinsmore 84, of Diane Drive, died on Tuesday, June 13, 2017, following a long illness at St. Francis Rehabilitation and Nursing Center surrounded by his loving family.

Stanley was born Oct. 6, 1932, in Unity Maine, son to the late Charlotte M. (Haney) and Charles A. Dinsmore.

He worked for Dexter Shoe for more than 50 years, starting out as a hand sewer and eventually working his way up to district manager of northern New England stores in 1977. At which time he and his wife moved to New Hampshire.

Stanley enjoyed spending time with his family and his many dogs over the years, working around the house and muttering under his breath about the daily stock exchange. He will be remembered most for his sense of humor and the twinkle in his eye.

Stanley is survived by his wife of 40 years, Donna (Nickerson) Dinsmore of Belmont; three sons, Scott Dinsmore of Provincetown, Massachusetts, Craig Dinsmore of Lake Placid, New York, and Eric Dinsmore and his fiancée, Ruth Lukasiewicz of Laconia; three grandchildren, Megan Fitton Pluvoise of Lynnfield, Massachusetts, Susan Fitton Warren of Fairfield, Maine, and Brett Shore of Portland, Maine; two sisters, Shirley Chadwick of Branford, Connecticut, and Beverly Fowler of Albion, Maine; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents he was predeceased by his son, Chad Dinsmore; a daughter, Sharee M. Fitton; and two sisters, Glennis Holt and Trudy Eeva.

There will be no calling hours or funeral service.

For those who wish, the family suggests that memorial contributions may be made to the New Hampshire Humane Society, P.O. Box 572. Laconia, NH 03276.
