History & Staff

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Our History

Being a family owned, three generation business is important to us here at the Dumont-Sullivan Funeral Home. This emphasis was set from it's beginning in 1949 when Leo A. Dumont, Sr. founded the funeral home with a credo of Trust, Respect, and Personal Care.

Our Valued Staff

Leo, Sr. an alumnus of Nashua High School, served in World war II as a Staff Sergeant in the Army Medical Corps from 1942-1945. Upon his return home, he went to Boston, MA and attended New England Institute of Anatomy and Mortuary Science (NEI) where he received his diploma in Funeral Directing and Embalming. In 1949, at his residence on Ferry St., in Hudson, NH he constructed a funeral home. The Leo A. Dumont Funeral Home proved to be a personal success as well as a success to the community. In 1967 another Leo A. Dumont Funeral Home was established on Kinsley St., in Nashua, NH. It would remain there until 1978.

Many changes took place between 1972-1979. With confidence and support from his wife Theresa, an addition was built to the Ferry St. location. The Nashua location was sold and the Sullivan Brothers Funeral Home on Spring St. in Nashua was purchased. With this new venture brought about needed help. Who better then Leo, Sr.'s son. Leo A. Dumont, Jr. a graduate of Alvirne High School and 1967 graduate of NEI, joined with his father in 1969. The two worked hand in hand for many years together.

The 1980's and 90's brought about even more changes to the funeral homes. The construction of a new County Court House in Nashua forced yet another move for the Nashua funeral home. A new location of 370 Main St. was found. Renovations of a former boarding house began and a new combined name for both the Hudson and Nashua homes was erected. The Dumont-Sullivan Funeral Homes, now with one combined name, continues to have two convenient locations to better serve the community.

As the new millennium came, Leo A. Dumont III opted to join the family business. He is a 1993 graduate of Bishop Guertin High School, a 1997 graduate of St. Joseph's College, and a 2000 graduate of NEI. With the passing of Leo., Sr. in 2000 and the new perspectives of Leo III, a major renovation and construction project took place at the Hudson facility. In 2003, changes to the facility allowed for families to relax in the comfort of a lounge area and we introduced the areas first children's room and DVD Tribute program.

However, with all that has changed since 1949, one thing remains the same; the code of Trust, Respect, and Personal Care.
