Portland – Clyde “Bubba” Dinsmore, 71, passed away on Wednesday, June 27, 2018 with his family by his side. Bubba was born in Westbrook, ME on April 29, 1947, he was the son of Edna and Anthony Juliano.

Bubba attended Portland School systems and was a graduate of Portland High School. He played football and enjoyed track and field, where he excelled in shotput. When he wasn’t playing sports, Bubba was on the sidelines watching wrestling, baseball and football.

Bubba served his country during The Vietnam War from 1969-1971, stationed out of Germany. While Bubba was in Germany, he drove military fuel trucks. Bubba utilized his skill when he came back to the states by driving tractor trailer for Ameri-Cana transport, hauling seafood to New York City until he retired.

Bubba was an avid Red Sox and New England Patriots fan. He enjoyed playing bocci ball and going to family events. His hobbies were antique cars and photography; he specialized in taking action shots during sporting events. Bubba was forever young at heart and had an amazing sense of humor that always made people laugh even in his final days, which his family will truly miss. Bubba displayed remarkable strength and courage throughout his entire life.

Bubba is survived by his sisters, Ethel-Ann (Juliano) Mastropasqua and husband Pasquale, June Juliano and husband David Stanley and Karen Juliano; his children, Michael Dinsmore, Maryann Dinsmore and Kelly Dinsmore and many nieces and nephews.

Bubba and I basically grew up together on Salem Street. I did not learn he passed until July 3rd. I was away on the first. I am very sad that he has passed on, but he has moved on to his final reward and will suffer no more.

A person could not have had a better friend! While our lives took us on different paths and we lost tract of each other (as happens too frequently), I thought of him often. He will continue to be a fond part of my memories.

I am sad for the loss you have all suffered.

Our Dad, The funniest strongest guy we've all ever known! Dad was the best driver hands down. Use to drive up over lawns close to mail boxes and even leaves from trees fell into the truck. Called controlled chaos! One day i stepped on a huge rusted nail went through my shoe all the way to the top. He saw i needed medical attention. Thats when his AMAZING driving skill came into effect. He drove everywhere and anywhere.. "Perfectly" to get me there! I'll never forget this and all our moment's together!! Till we meet again dad!
