Beloved son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and friend, David Trombino, passed away on February 18, 2024 after a courageous 9-year battle with cancer. He did not allow the illness to dictate how he lived his life, never slowed down, and continued to be a source of strength for his family and friends. Dave, as he was called by most, was born on July 21, 1950 in Staten Island, NY to Thomas and Bernice Trombino. He grew up in Middletown, NJ as the oldest sibling to Stephen, Lyn, Lorraine, and Dennis. He was approaching his 50th wedding anniversary with his loving wife, Pamela Brown Trombino. Together they raised their children, Doug and Brian, in Manchester, NJ. They were a great team who supported each other through the best and toughest of times, and always went above and beyond for their children. Their boys love and appreciate them more than words can ever express. His four grandchildren, Anna, Bella, Gia, and Jack adored him and brought out the softest side of him. He loved spending time with them and was so proud of them. He was very quick to offer his time or resources to help, whether it was coaching or helping his kid’s sports team or school, volunteering with charitable organizations, or helping to improve his community. Dave operated a family business, M&D East, that was established in 1969 by his father, Thomas. His work ethic and principled approach set a great example for his family. A celebration of Dave’s life will be held at Anderson & Campbell Funeral Home, 115 Lacey Rd. Whiting, NJ on March 23, 2024, from 1-3pm.
