Trivits, Ronald E.

 Ronald Earl Trivits

October 9, 1938 – May 27, 2016

Ron Trivits, age 77, passed away in his home in Lewisville, Texas early Friday morning while alongside his wife Carol.  Known as “Pop Pop” by his grandchildren, he was the youngest of four children to Eleanor & George Trivits born in Wilmington, Delaware. Ron is preceded in death by his parents and his brother, George Trivits. He is survived by wife Carol, daughters Terry Vernon & Cindy Segovia, grandchildren Brandon & Connor Vernon, Nick and Rachael Segovia, sons-in-law Paul Vernon & Art Segovia, brother Robert Trivits and wife Doris, sister Joann Morowski and husband Les, as well as numerous nieces & nephews.

Ron grew up in Stanton where he graduated from Henry C. Conrad High School and attended the University of Delaware. He retired at the age of 52 from DuPont. He lived in various places throughout the Dallas area from 1976 until his passing. Ron could be found at his happiest, and best, beside his wife, raising his daughters, and supporting his grandchildren. His love for people, including complete strangers, could only be trumped by the love he shared with his family. Even in his final hours, he was a light in the darkest of situations, never letting his sense of humor or contagious energy fade.

A celebration of life will be held at the home of Paul & Terry Vernon at 4564 Turnberry Ct Plano, TX 75024 on Sunday, June 5th from 2:00-5:00 PM. A memorial service will be held at Marshallton United Methodist Church, located at 1105 Stanton Rd in Wilmington, DE 19808 Saturday June 11 at 1:00 PM.

Should friends desire, a contribution may be made to Marshallton United Methodist Church.

He will be loved, he will be missed, and he will never be forgotten.  Rest in Peace.

My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!
