LAWRENCE D. "LARRY" TRINCIA, SR.
Lawrence D. Trincia Sr, 91, of Wilmington, Delaware, beloved husband, Dad, Pop-Pop, Uncle and Brother is now home with his heavenly Father, who Lawrence loved and served faithfully. Lawrence was preceded in death by his loving wife Stella Belczyk Trincia, his parents Earl and Jennie Trincia, his sisters Pat Castiglione, Lucy Benicky and brothers John, Lewis, Francis Sr. and Earl Jr.
Lawrence is survived by his son, Lawrence D. Trincia Jr; daughter, Barbara Braucht, son-in-law Timothy Braucht, his grandchildren Erin Braucht Lane (Chris), Timothy Lee Braucht Jr. (Diannah); his great grandson, Evan; brother Richard Trincia; sisters Joanna Janowski and Jacqueline Zeiber; numerous nieces and nephews and his loving companion Theresa Romanoski.
Lawrence enjoyed making his living in the Dairy industry, first by working in his father’s business, Earl’s Dairy, then working at Abbotts, Sealtest, Fraim’s and owning and operating a Mr. Softee franchise. Lawrence always helped others, was good to his family and devoted to his grandchildren. Prior to his illness, Lawrence was an active member of St. Matthews Church and the Men of Malvern praying for himself, family and friends. Prior to being in assisted living, he worked at Meals on Wheels delivering meals and providing friendship to seniors less fortunate than himself. His children are forever grateful for the care that he provided their mother during her extended illness and also are very sad that he had to spend the last 6 years of his life suffering from Alzheimers disease.
His children are so very proud that he served his country in the Army in Europe during WWII and that he was a recipient of a Purple Heart. Since he served in the military he was able to get excellent care in the Veteran’s Nursing home in Milford, Delaware. His children wish to express a sincere thank you to all of the staff who provided such tender care to him.
A viewing will be held on Thursday, January 26, from 10-10:50 at St. Matthews RC Church, 901 E Newport Pike, Wilmington, where a Mass of Christian Burial will follow at 11am. Burial will be at Saints Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, contributions be made to your favorite charity.
