Roland G. Dumais of Yarmouth Port died August 26 at the Cape Cod Hospital after a brief incident.

Roland lived in a group home in Yarmouth Port with his friends and the best care givers he could have asked for, especially Karena — a very special thank you to Karena for all she was and did for Roland. He loved the people he lived with in the group home. He would often speak of how much he liked living with each and every one of them. He will be missed. Please know how much his family appreciated the care and love that was given to Roland throughout the years he spent in Yarmouth Port.

He was a member of the Nauset Inc. and Cape Abilities workshop for special needs. He leaves behind lots of friends made throughout his days at the workshop.

He was the beloved son of the late Joseph Roland and Lorraine B. Dumais and brother of the late Jean L. Dumais. He is survived by his only brother, Robert P. Dumais Sr. of Oak Bluffs and Naples, Fla.; two nephews and several cousins.
