Christopher Robert Trumbour, 58, Maynard, Massachusetts (June 28 1962 – February 7, 2021).

Chris Trumbour passed away on January 7, 2021 in Concord, Massachusetts. The only son of Margaret and Joseph Trumbour, Chris was born in Massachusetts and raised in Granby, Connecticut, graduating from Northwest Catholic High School in West Hartford.

Returning to the Boston area in 1984, he received a bachelor of arts degree from St. John’s Seminary College in Brighton and worked for Arkwright Insurance, Borders Bookstores, and ultimately Trader Joe’s where he enjoyed the friendship of a true work family.

Chris was well-loved and known for his keen sense of humor, taking joy in making people laugh. He had a tremendous memory, especially for people and dates, and served as the unofficial family historian. He astounded his family with his recall for names, adventures, and events – even those he only knew second hand.

A lifelong lover of history, Chris was fond of old movies and vintage television series with an almost encyclopedic knowledge of plots and actors. He also enjoyed viewing old pictures of the Boston area, appreciating the details of long-closed stores, attire, and ways of life.

To know Chris was to know his devotion to his caring for his mother, Peg. He was her tireless chauffeur, a chef balancing dietary restrictions with favorite cheats, and an endless source of humor in her life.

Chris is survived by his mother, Margaret (Peg) Trumbour of Maynard, MA, his sister Ellen Oliver and her husband Larry of Stow, Massachusetts, and nephews Thomas Oliver of New York, New York, and Matthew Oliver of Stow, Massachusetts. He is predeceased by his father, Joseph (Ted) Trumbour.

Peggy and Ellen, I was so sad to hear this morning that Chris had passed. I know he took great care of Peg. We haven't seen Chris since we were kids, but I have such vivid memories of him. I guess the earliest is the "Judy All Better Cake" that he and Peg made for me when I badly burned my hands when I was 5. He was so excited to give it to me, and I was so happy to receive it! I also remember being captivated by his pet bunnies in Granby. I was feeding them constantly when I came for a stay. And of course, I will always recall fondly our visits to Pittsburgh, NH! The freezing water of the lake, boat trips, visiting the dump at night to see the bears, picking blueberries in the back yard, the barn, and the Jeep rides. Remember when Chris fell out of the Jeep as uncle Joe drove down a kind of bumpy dirt road? My dad was sitting up front with him, and I believe they each had a can of Bud in hand. Ken an I were in back with Chris. Chris stood up just as we hit a dip or a bump and he tumbled out of the Jeep. Ken and I yelled to the Dad's, but they didn't hear us for a minute. Anyway, Chris was OK, aside from a bump on his head. He got to go to the little store across from the house to get a candy stick. Ken and I were very jealous! The obit is lovely. Sounds like he was just as cheerful as an adult as he was as a kid. I love the pics too! I know Chris will be so missed. Know that the Harbers are thinking of Chris and you both at this sad time. Rest in Peace Chris. Love Judy (Harber) Callahan

Remembering all the drives we took from Waltham to Connecticut to visit cousins Chris and Ellen! It was the first time being exposed to skiing right in their own backyard! Many years of skiing enjoyed with family and friends!

Dear Aunt Peggy, Ellen, Larry, Matt and Tom,
I was so saddened to hear of the loss of our wonderful Christopher. My heart and prayers go out to all of you at this time of sorrow. I will always remember the joy and laughter Chris brought to every occasion, he loved family and was a kind and loving soul . I too remember with fondness walking down to visit our cousins and times in Granby. Love and laughter accompanied any time with Chris especially birthday parties! Every time I have lit a birthday candle I have thought of cousin Christopher and I always will

Thank you Lisa - Chris was so fond of those family get togethers. I always picture him seated with a bunch of laughing people around him. I'm so happy you think of him when you see birthday candles - he would love that.
