Raymond "Bud" Lee Trumbo, age 87, of Marion, North Carolina passed away on Sunday September 29, 2019. "Bud" was born July 2, 1932 in Portsmouth Ohio to Raymond and Ada Trumbo.

He served in the US Navy where he traveled the world aboard the USS Wasp. He worked for American Laundry Association in Cincinnati, Ohio; IBM in Boca Raton, FL; (as well as he owned his own dry cleaners and laundromat for a period of time). Raymond also spent many years caring for his mother as she aged, and caring for his wife during an extended illness.

Raymond was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, and a loyal friend to all who knew and loved him. He loved animals, and especially enjoyed the time he spent with his dalmatian, Bubba, on hikes in the mountains of NC. If you spent any time with him you were sure to know his kindness and hear a story of his time in the Navy, or his love of travel with family and friends. He was an avid hiker, camper, and later RVer, and he always loved to work on his many antique automobiles, and show them off at car shows. He belonged to various clubs including the Jeepster Association, the Mercury Club, and the Mopar Club. He was a member of Norwood Christian Church in Ohio, and First Christian Church of Boca Raton, FL and Marion, NC.

Raymond is survived by his children; Dennis Trumbo, Brian (Laurie) Trumbo, and Connie (Todd) Campbell. Grandchildren; Christopher (Colleen) Trumbo, Caitlin (Brandon) White, and Melanie Campbell. Great-grandchildren; Avery, Emerson, Jackson, and Preston. Predeceased in 2003 by his wife Alice Jane Locke who he married in 1956.

Mr. Campbell, as I mistakenly called him, was such a sweetheart! Meeting him through my neighbors Connie Todd and Melanie Campbell, I goofed on his name, but he took it in stride, never missed a beat, and said I could call him Ray. He graciously welcomed me overnight into his lovely home on the lake as I travelled through North Carolina. I really enjoyed our talks and my stay with him and Bubba. He was such an easy going, likable guy and sure could make a mean pancake breakfast! I never met his wife Alice (my mom’s name too), but I knew of the love and devotion he showed her during her illness, and that speaks volumes of a man’s character. I send my sympathies and prayers for God to fill the hearts of his family and friends and give them strength and comfort at this difficult time. Go good with God Ray!

Bud as we called him was my cousin. I loved him and his wife Alice and I babysat for their kids when I was in high school. They were the sweetest couple And two of the nicest people you’d never want to meet. I wish I could’ve visited them more but we were always miles apart once they moved south but he never failed to visit when he came to Cincinnati with as many cousins as we could get together. Sending my sympathy to his children, Dennis, Brian and Connie and their families. Love, Sharon
