Thomas Charles Trumbull, 61 of East Hampton, and formerly of East Granby, CT died suddenly on January 8, 2022. Tom was a cherished son, brother, cousin, uncle and friend. Tom was born in Fort Wayne, IN on October 17, 1960, the youngest son of the late William and Joanne (Schneider) Trumbull of East Granby, CT. He attended Northwest Catholic High School in West Hartford, CT and the University of Vermont.
Tom was a gifted athlete at first base in Little League, as well as surviving the wilds as a Boy Scout. His summers were spent as a diehard Boston Red Sox’s fan and enjoying nature, whether visiting the beaches of Cape Cod or fishing the streams of the Farmington River and the Adirondacks. And his winters never seemed cold, whizzing at top speed as an elegant downhill skier at Gore Mt. and Lake Placid, NY. Tom was highly intelligent with an irreverent sense of humor that often left others “giggling” from his deadpan jokes. Tom was devoted to his family and his favorite pet beagle, “Champ” and developed a surprising green thumb later in life growing a lush organic garden.
Tom is survived by his siblings, Alison Trumbull Eckels and her husband David of Old Saybrook, CT; William B. Trumbull Jr. and his ex-wife Barbara Buttons from Ogden UT, and his nieces and nephews: Connor and Maura Eckels from CT and VA and Allie McQuain, Chris and Cole Trumbull from Utah. He has many loving cousins and a beloved Uncle Joe from Erie, PA.
A Roman Catholic funeral mass is planned at Christ the King Church in Old Lyme, CT on Saturday, January 22 at 11 AM. 1 McCurdy Road, Old Lyme, CT 06371. Burial will be at the convenience of his family.
