Passing of Bob Dumont. Here is what Dumontís posted on their Facebook page.

It is with a sad and heavy heart that we announce the passing of our Patriarch, our leader and our mentor, Bob Dumont. He was a pioneer, like many of his era, in the automotive industry. He had a long distinguished career as a professional top fuel drag racer in the 1960ís and 70ís setting many track records throughout the Midwest while owning and operating one of the most successful Porsche repair shops in the country. If you owned a Porsche in Oklahoma or the surrounding states, you knew who Bob Dumont was. Although he retired in 2006, he remained a staple at the shop until recently when his health forced a change in his day to day activities. While his passing will leave a huge void in our lives, the strength and leadership he instilled in his kids, has and will keep his Porsche legacy alive through his Son, Michael and his daughter Debbie who have both grown up working at Dumontís. We will post funeral arrangements as soon as they are set. Thank you.
