In Loving Memory

Dumey, Norman Frank

July 16, 1936 - December 5, 2023

Age 87, Fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church on December 5, 2023. Born on July 16, 1936 in Rockview, Scott County, MO to the late Irene (nee Westrich) Dumey.  Beloved husband of 48 years to the late Lois (nee Mossinghoff) Dumey.  Loving father of Joe (Melissa) Dumey, Michele (Danny) Paisig, and Marie (Wes) Ruehl.  Dear Grandpa of Teddy Ruehl.  Devoted brother to Shirley (the late Al) DeFrancesco, the late Rose (Ken) Geimer, and the late Mary Caruthers.  Dear uncle, cousin, and friend to so many.

Norman grew up in Chaffee, MO and spent many summers in St. Louis with his Aunt Alma (Westrich) and Uncle Clyde Adams.  As the founder of Adams Furnace Co., Clyde mentored Norman in the Sheet Metal and HVAC trade.  In 1953 Norman moved to St. Louis and began his apprenticeship with Adams Furnace Co.  Soon after, he earned enough to move his single mom and 3 younger sisters up to St. Louis with him.  He spent the next 2 decades focusing on providing for them, purchasing a family home and his first vehicle (his beloved 1965 Chevy Impala SS).  During this time he also served his country as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army Reserves from 1954 to 1965.  In his spare time he enjoyed fishing, boating, golfing, and watching car racing.

In 1973 he married Lois, and together they had 3 wonderful children.  In 1983 Norm and Lois assumed ownership of Adams Furnace Co., Inc., serving as President and Vice President through retirement.  In 1995 they purchased their dream home in St. Louis Hills and were proud members of St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Church.  They enjoyed many happy times with family and friends at their house in Lake of the Ozarks.  Norman was a proud member of the Sheet Metal Workers Union-Local 36 for over 70 years, and his sheet metal skills were truly unmatched.  Above all he was a fierce protector and provider for his family.

Services: Funeral Mass on Sat, December 16 10am at St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Church.  Procession to Resurrection Cemetery for interment.  Luncheon to follow.

  1. Dumey Family,
    You have my deepest sympathy in your time of grief. I was elated that your dad went to De Gref house and passed with dignity and peacefully. I am truly sorry I did not have the chance to speak with you before his passing.

  2. I’m so sorry for your great loss, Joe, Michele, Marie, and Dumey family. He was an amazing man and will be missed! I’m glad he is at peace and is no longer suffering from PD and dementia and has been reunited with Lois. Growing up, they were both like family to us. Prayers for peace, comfort and strength for you all,

  3. I am deeply sorry for your loss. Tammy and I send our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Uncle Norm has been a mentor to me in many ways growing up that I have cherished and always kept personal to me. Working for Norm during the summers while in college taught me that hard work always pays off and usually good luck will follow. I always enjoyed the fun we had playing pinochle during the holidays and Tammy, and I were thankful for Norms involvement in building our first new home. He inspired us to enjoy life at Lake Ozark because of all the great memories we had while visiting the Dumey family.

    God bless you all,
    Steve and Tammy

  4. Norman was a very kind and gentle soul. He touched so many in the construction industry that it would be hard to count them . I had the honor and privilege of being one of Norman‘s many friends. Marie, thank you so much for meeting me so I could see Norman at the nursing home, I really enjoyed our discussions about your father. there is no doubt he will rest in peace with the Lord.

  5. We are so deeply sorry for your loss. May cherished memories bring comfort and the support of loved ones provide strength. We are keeping you all in our prayers during this difficult time and know he is in a better place and reunited with your mom.
