Obituary for Wayne Trimm
Wayne Trimm, our region's John James Audubon, died on June 2nd in Hoosick Falls, NY at age 94.
Through his beautiful paintings of birds and animals, Wayne brought the outdoors indoors. Using his paintings as a starting point, he was able to explain how all things on planet Earth are interrelated and interdependent. During his 75 year career as an artist-scientist, he taught young and old about the environment, and about the ecosystems upon which all life depends. Best of all, he inspired many people to go outside and see Nature for themselves.
Wayne is survived by his wife Melodee James, his son's Steve Trimm of Albany, NY, Tracy Trimm of Greenfield, MA, grandchildren Arielle Ewell, Kerry Kazmierowicztrimm and Dylan Kazmierowicztrimm, great grandchildren Elijah Ewell and Bella Ewell. He is also survived by his chosen daughters Violet Washburn and Edwina Lambert and chosen grandson Cooper Washburn. Wayne was predeceased by his wife, Lynn Trimm and son, Lancelee James Trimm.
Visiting hours will be on Saturday June 17th from 3:00 – 7:00 pm, at the Mahar Funeral Home, 43 Main Street, Hoosick Falls, NY 12090. A Celebration of Wayne's life is being planned. More information will be available on June 17th and on the website: firstname.lastname@example.org.
