Early this year, he was hospitalized with a rare form of gastric cancer. He fought for months, then returned to his home of more than 50 years. Keeping vigil at his deathbed were his four kids, including daughter Paula Batchelder.

At his May 2 wake, 26 fire engines pulled up to the funeral home. Firefighters came from both sides of the river.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Donna. He is survived by his four children, 13 grandchildren, brother Ernest Dickinson Jr., and sister Donna Rodeghero.
