Lifelong Alaskan and Kasilof resident Christopher Anthony Trumpler died Thursday, June 29, 2006, in Anchorage. He was 22.
A funeral mass was held at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 8, at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Soldotna. Father Richard Tero officiated.
Mr. Trumpler was born May 15, 1984, in Fairbanks. He attended Skyview High School and worked in highway construction with his dad statewide with Q.A.P.
He was baptized in Costa Rica and had his first communion at the church in Soldotna.
He enjoyed cars, motorcycles, swimming, running and eating well. He also enjoyed dancing and was training to be a boxer.
“Everyone who knew Chris saw something special in him. He loved to laugh and he loved talking with his dad. He pushed the limits of life in many directions and went to the extremes in all of his pursuits. We always hoped he’d have a happy, full life. He had gifts that could have taken him far. We adored him as a son and brother, and he will be with us forever,” his family said.

He is survived by his parents, Al and Aida Trumpler of Kasilof; sister, Michelle Trumpler of Miami; aunts, Johanna and Ben Skversky of Florida, Maria Trumpler and Kate Dudley of Vermont, Nidia Thom Arce, Rosario Thom Arce, Maria Elena Thom Saenz, Trini Thom Bolanos and Socorro Arce, all of San Jose, Costa Rica; grandparents, William and Irma Trumpler of Florida; and many cousins and extended family members in Costa Rica, Aosta, Italy, and California.
