Obituary

It is with a heavy heart that we share that Larry "Red" Trombley, 72, passed away unexpectedly on the evening of November 2nd doing what he loved most, hunting.  Larry, better known as "Red," and even more importantly "Pop" to his favorite people, was a loving husband, dad, grandfather, and a friend to many.  He was the youngest son of Maurice and Jeannette (Peete).  He was born on October 19th, 1950 in Plattsburgh, NY.  He attended Mooers Central School and it was there that he met his high school sweetheart, Crystal (Jubert).  Shortly after graduating they made their love official and tied the knot on September 19th, 1970 at St. Annes Church in Mooers Forks.  Red spent his entire life living on the Blackman Road in Mooers Forks and even raised his two daughters in the same house he was raised in.  Left to cherish his memory, he is survived by Crystal, his wife of 52 years, daughters Nicole Trombley and Angie (Kyle) DePietro, grandchildren Morgan Bennet, Elijah, Julian and Stellan DePietro, brothers Ronnie (Jeanette), Bobby (Shirley), and Gerald, sister-in-law June Trombley, Jackie Lafountain, Carolyn Murphy, Jane Burnah, and Nancy (Raymond) Dubuque.  He also leaves behind the light of his life, his furry best friend, Cooper.  In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his in-laws Earl and Vivian Jubert, brothers Andy (Theresa) and Charlie, sister-in-law Betty and several in-laws.  Anyone who knew Red was well aware that he was an avid hunter. We are deeply saddened by his loss but take solace in knowing that he died doing what he loved best, hunting.  He was happy doing anything outside- camping, fishing, golfing and four-wheeling were just a few of his favorites.  He also enjoyed spending the winter months at his second home in Sebring, Florida.  Red was a jack of all trades and a handy-man.  It was not uncommon to call him when something needed to be fixed because there wasn't anything he couldn't figure out.  He was the man with the silver hair and gold in his heart.  He was a provider, a hero and a role model.  He was tough on the outside (especially with a red-headed temper) and soft on the inside, being a giver of the best bear hugs.  
He served in the National Guard for 6 years then moved on to become a plumber and steamfitter with Local 773.  For the majority of his career he worked for K & L Plumbing which he eventually retired from.   He also owned his own business, North Country Closet and Shelving.  Red was well known to many and if you didn't know him you would end up becoming friends, especially if there was food around.  His family would like to offer special thanks to his dear friend, Dicky Bushey, for all he has done during this very difficult time.  A private service for family members will be held on Wednesday, November 9th at 3pm at Ross Funeral Home in Mooers.  If you considered him a friend please come celebrate his life at Rainbow Banquet Hall in Altona at 5pm.  In lieu of flowers we ask that you make a donation to Mooers Fire Department and EMS or the animal rescue of your choice.   Red will be missed by everyone but especially his kids and grandkids who didn't get enough time to be with this wonderful man.
