Stephen A. Trentman ’37

Published in Mar. 20, 1991, issue

TWINKLE TOES, loyal, everappreciative Princetonian Steve Trentman died Nov. 24, 1990, after an eightyear bout with Alzheimer's disease, leaving his widow Emalea and a brother Harry.

Steve came to us from Lawrenceville, where he was football manager and business manager of the Year Book. At Princeton he majored in politics, was a member of Dial Lodge, and on graduation went to work in the Carson, Pirie, Scott department store in Chicago, then three years with the family Willman Lumber Co. in Indiana and four years in the Army. Upon enlistment he was assigned to an Ordnance Battalion, became a second lieutenant stationed in one of our southwest deserts before being shipped overseas to England and being promoted to captain. After the war came a move to Southern Calif., joining the Bank of America for 13 years before retirement in 1958. He was treasurer of the Princeton Club of Southern Calif. and received a citation from President Dodds for helping the 195556 Annual Giving campaign, before moving to the Laguna Beach area and then, in 1966, Washington, when he kept busy as V.P. of the Citizens Assn. of Georgetown and of the Foundation for the Preservation of Historic Georgetown and as president of the Friends of 'Winterthur Museum. in 1984 the Trentmans moved from Washington to Stonegates, a retirement community just outside Wilmington.

Deepest condolences to Emalea and Harry. We will miss Steve's joyous and lively appearances at reunions.
