Obituary for Gordon James Trumbley

TRUMBLEY, Gordon James
(August 17, 1949 - November 5, 2023) -

It is with broken hearts and great sadness that we announce the untimely passing of Gordon Trumbley on November 5th, 2023 at the age of 74. By his side and throughout his courageous battle with a short-term illness, Gord passed away peacefully at Lakeridge Health Oshawa surrounded by his loving family. He will be sadly missed by his beloved companion Betty Eteli. He will also be sorely missed and forever remembered by his adored daughter, Pam Pope, and his loving son, Greg (Nicole). He was the amazing, loving, and proud "Grampa Gord" to Tristan and Maddison. Gord is also survived by his brother Doug (Judy) and his nieces Kara (Rich) and Kayley. Predeceased by his father Donald, and his mother Edna (Spence), as well as his sisters Donna and Elaine. Will forever be fondly remembered by his friend and mother of his two children, Pat Trumbley. Gord will also be fondly and devotedly remembered by Tyson and Jassy Eteli and their families. Furthermore, he will be forever loved and deeply missed by his furry companion Lexi, who always made sure to keep him in line and made sure he was ok. Gord will always be remembered for his amazing and cynical sense of humor, his gentle, non-judgemental, easygoing approach, his utmost kindness, his extreme generosity, and his ability and willingness to always help others.

If anyone ever had a problem or needed any sort of guidance, advice, or support, Gord was always right there without hesitation and always had the right answers. For these reasons--among many others--he will be missed tremendously by an abundance of friends all of which he accumulated with ease during his 74 years on earth.
The family would also like to extend our sincerest thanks to the staff at Lakeridge Health Oshawa who took part in the loving care that was provided--especially the doctors and nursing staff of the Critical Care Unit - Station 1.

As per Gord's wishes, no visitation or funeral service will take place. A Celebration of Life will be held and announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, and if desired, donations to a charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.

Give me a wave I can ride upon, come and show your strength to me
