Dions: He collected stamps, she quilted

He sold them at the small North Salem post office that he ran for 24 years before retiring in 2003. He collected them, apparently dedicating a room in his split-level home to his collection. And the 70-year-old took part-time jobs and weekend trips, traveling the region to meet and swap stories and stamps with other stamp collectors.
Friends of Dion and his wife, Connie, spoke fondly of the couple on Tuesday, as they wait word of an investigation into an explosion and fire in the couple's Mooresville Road home. Authorities said bodies of an adult man and woman were found in the building Monday.
Connie had her own interests. She quilted, and she proudly displayed her work on Facebook. A family friend noted she would bring quilt pieces to another one of the family's interests — Manchester Monarchs games — and quilt during the game.
At New England-area auctions, stamps usually fetch between $25 and $500, but some have exceeded $10,000, Schofield said. Dion kept his stamps in the ground floor of the Mooresville Road home, Schofield said.
"Everybody who went to the North Salem post office knew Bob," Normand said. "He was a very friendly, happy-go-lucky guy."
