Peter E. Trabold


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Peter E. Trabold, 84, passed away March 7, 2019 in Melbourne, Florida. He was born in Rochester, New York, on December 25, 1934 to Oscar and Armella Trabold.

Peter graduated from St. John Fisher College and worked as an accountant for over four decades at various companies including Allied Chemical (now Honeywell) in Syracuse, NY, where he held several positions. After ten years at Allied he moved to the corporate headquarters in New Jersey for another ten years before returning to upstate New York to join the Hanlin Group as comptroller. He finished his career at Solvay Iron Works, retiring to the Space Coast region of Florida in 1998.

During retirement, Peter took many cruises with his wife and cherished spending time with his three children and five grandchildren. He valued his German heritage, even traveling to Germany for a Traboldtreffen family reunion with many cousins. He had a great interest in trains and was an active member of the Loyal Order of the Moose, Elks Lodge, and Knights of Columbus.

Peter is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Anne C. Trabold; daughter Monica A. Trabold and son-in-law Greg Miner; daughter Mary C. Trabold; son Peter A. Trabold and daughter-in-law Dawn Dolan; grandchildren Evan Miner, Carolyn Miner, Meredith Miner, Griffin Trabold and Lyla Trabold.

Dear Anne, I am so sorry to find out about Peter. He was a great asset to the German Club. I am sure he’ll be missed by many. It sounds like you’ll be traveling to Rochester, perhaps to be with your children, and I hope you find comfort in spending time with them and your grandchildren. I’ll think of you.
