On Friday, September 10, 2021, Louis-Georges (George) Dupont, loving husband and father of five children passed away at the age of 92. George was born on April 18, 1929 in Saint Pamphile, Quebec, Canada. He was French Canadian and worked on the family farm before working as a lumber jack in northern Quebec. At 18, he went to Toronto to join the construction trade, where he met his future wife, Julia G. Dalton, who was from Edinburgh, Scotland. George came to Lexington, Kentucky, when it was a small town in 1957, and they married shortly thereafter. They left their families, homes and everything they knew to give their children a better life and were married for over 54 years. Starting his own home building and remodeling company, they raised five children, Bernadette Dupont, Annette DuPont-Ewing (Tony), Diane Newcomb (Patrick), Michael Dupont (Shelly), and Louise Dupont. ¬¬¬ George left his mark on Lexington’s landscape by building and remodeling many homes and helping to construct several of the city’s landmarks like the Oleika Shriner’s Temple, Parkette Drive-In, and Southland Bowling Lanes. George was a man of great integrity, and known for his quick wit, his kind and gentle spirit, and his words of wisdom which continue to mold and shape his family’s lives.
