Richard (Dick-Dickie) Norman Trombley
December 6, 1940 - March 15, 2018
Dick's puzzle of life was completed peacefully on March 15, 2018, surrounded by his children. He has gone home to join his father Raymond Joseph Trombley and mother Germaine (Chaloux) Trombley, brothers Eugene and Francis and wife Patricia (Goodnough), and sisters Arlene and Anita. Born in Claremont, New Hampshire, he spent most of his life in Unity, New Hampshire before finally settling in Mesa. Beloved father of daughters: Denise and husband Philip Parry, of Merrimac, Massachusetts, Kandi and husband Richard (Rick) Edson, of Gilford, New Hampshire, Jodie and husband Richard Camp of Mesa, Arizona, Kim and husband Anthony (Tony) Manfredi, of Chandler; sons: Raymond (Ray) Trombley and wife Sherri (Hall), of Chandler, and Derek Yoders of Maricopa; and grandchildren: Stephanie, Emily, Charles, and Philip Parry, all of Merrimac, Massachusetts, Richard, Olivia, and Shaun Edson of Gilford, New Hampshire, Aiden and Ayla Trombley of Chandler, and great granddaughter Azaliea Parry of Merrimac, Massachusetts. Dick is also survived by his brothers and sisters: Charles and wife Virginia (Peters) of Cambridge, Massachusetts, James (Jimmy) and wife Marie (Lamirande), of Charlestown, New Hampshire, Margery and deceased husband Robert (Bob) Dunthorn, of Summerfield, of Florida, Georgianna (Sassy) and husband Earl Goodnough, of Ft. Pierce, Florida, and William (Billy) and wife Elizabeth (Betty Currier) of Ft. Pierce, Florida; sister-in law Rose Conners (Eugene); brother-in-law Roy Williams (Arlene), brother-in-law Victor Pas (Anita) and numerous nieces and nephews and extended family.
Dick spent most of his life as a master baker working for Sunray Bakery in Massachusetts, and Piccadilly and Coco's (bakery/restaurants) in Arizona. Dick loved the outdoors, taking long walks daily and sometimes wandering out in the desert, as well as, fishing, 500 piece puzzles, and collecting Indian dolls and pictures; but mostly loved spending time with his family, especially when it came to a family breakfast, his favorite meal.
At Dick's request, no memorial service will be held. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to Hospice of the Valley (www.HOV.org), which provided comfort for Dick and amazing support for his children during this difficult time.
