Obituary for Michael Trumpy
Michael James "Mikey" Trumpy, age 55, of Argyle, Texas and formerly of Janesville passed away Wednesday, July 19, 2017, in Flower Mound, TX. He was born December 29, 1961 in Janesville, WI, to James and Sharen (Bysted) Trumpy. He enjoyed Boy Scouts with his father, and he ran track in junior high. Mike attended Parker High School, and received his High School diploma in Wichita, KS while serving in the United States Air Force. He worked in the logistics industry all of his career. He worked as a “spotter” for a few years before starting his own business, Mikey’s Apartment Movers, in 1988. After 9/11, he went back to school and became the first person in his family to graduate from college. Mike received his degree in logistics from the University of North Texas in 2005. After that, he worked in dispatch and was employed by CEVA Logistics Company. Mike was known for his gregarious personality and his unwavering commitment to his beloved Green Bay Packers. He was funny, compassionate, self-taught, and never gave up. His heart was full of love for his family, his friends, and strangers alike. He was most at peace while canoeing the Canadian Boundary Waters with his father and his brother. He was known for the quirky, but brilliant, way he approached everything he did. He attended Shiloh Church in Flower Mound, TX where he helped teach Sunday school.
Michael is survived by his three children: Noel Lee Trumpy, Shelle Dyan Uptergrove and her husband William, and Christopher Michael Trumpy; grandchildren, Ayden, Karlie, and Blaze; parents, Jim and Sharen Trumpy; brother, Phil Trumpy; nephew, Travis Trumpy and his wife Jessica; aunt and uncle, Dick and Sandy Bysted; and many other relatives and friends. We cherish all the wonderful family memories we had with him, especially his visits to Oklahoma and Wisconsin.
A Celebration Honoring Mike’s life will be held on Thursday, August 3, 2017 from 3 p.m. until 4 p.m. at the Whitcomb – Lynch Funeral Home, with a sharing of memories beginning at 4 p.m. Memorials would be appreciated if they were made in Mike’s name to the charity of the donor’s choice.
