William A. "Bill" Trumbull, 65, a longtime resident of Whidbey Island, died at St. Joseph Hospital in Bellingham, following a brief illness.

Mr. Trumbull was born May 2, 1937, in Seattle to Richard S. Trumbull and Opal (Moore) Trumbull. He lived in Seattle for 10 years, after which he moved to Coupeville with his family. His parents ran the San de Fuca Store and post office for many years. He attended Coupeville High School, and then entered the Air Force, serving from 1955 through 1959.

Mr. Trumbull was employed by Maylor Ford and Libbey Construction before returning to Berg Ford, where he worked as a transmission specialist for 29 years. He enjoyed motorcycles, cars and taking the family RV on trips, especially as a snowbird to Arizona. His greatest love was his family, and most especially his grandchildren.
