July 1, 1948 — Sept. 29, 2012

After a courageous nine-month battle with lung cancer, Gary died at Marshall Hospital in Placerville, Calif., on Sept. 29, 2012. Born in Sacramento, Calif., on July 1, 1948, Gary was the son of Norman Trimble and Elna Trimble. He is survived by his loving wife of 22 years, Patricia Trimble; daughter, Rachael Trimble (Scott); grandchildren, Joshua, Jared, Candice and Emma; brother, Earle Trimble (Henrietta); sister, Suzanne Trimble (Kevin); mother, Elna Trimble; sister-in-law, Merrianne Halm (Brad); and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Gary graduated from Encina High School in Sacramento, Calif., in 1966, and maintained lifelong friendships with his high school friends. After high school, he was enlisted in the U.S. Army and served two tours of duty in Vietnam as a helicopter crew chief in the 1st Cavalry Division, Company B, 228th Aviation Battalion. There he received numerous honors, including the Army Commendation Medal, the Air Medal and the Bronze Star. After his military service, he earned his Associate of Arts degree from Sacramento City College in aeronautical engineering. As his friends and family can attest, he was a mechanical genius, and loved the challenge of repairing anything.

Gary was a co-owner and resident manager of Crestview Mobile Home Park in Placerville, Calif. As such, he used his many mechanical skills on a daily basis. Over the years he developed other skills needed to handle the day-to-day challenges presented by a large “seniors only” mobile home park. Gary had many friends inside and outside the mobile home park. He had the respect of all. In his younger days, he spent a lot of time riding motorcycles with his father, brother and friends and was involved in the Sacramento motorcycle racing scene. He enjoyed fishing and camping and had a soft spot in his heart for every dog and cat.

At Gary’s request there will be no services. A memorial will be announced at a later time.
