Biography:

Robert Trousil of Downey, California, died at age 86 on June 21, 2013.

Bob, "Dad" "Grandpa" Trousil will be remembered mostly for the way he befriended everyone he met. Bob was born to Joseph and Frances Trousil on May 5th, 1927 in Joliet, Illinois. His father was a police officer and his mom stayed home and raised three children, Robert, Joyce and Franny.

He graduated from Joliet High School and went to the University of Illinois.

He served in the Army in 1944 and studied photography. After leaving the military he opened a photography studio specializing in portraits and weddings.

He worked as an EMT in the Fire Department for many years before relocating to Southern California in 1957.

He owned a window manufacturing business for many years before retiring and starting on his lifelong passion of Model A restoration.

In 1965 he met the love of his life, Yolanda Martha Bustamante. They married and their adventure together of 47 years began.

He raised three children and helped raised three grandchildren

We will miss his calls, suggestions, sayings, and songs. Plus his never ending support of the underdog, list making, stick figure drawings, storytelling, and jokes, good and bad that could brighten any day. He enjoyed visiting, eating out, traveling in his Model A, and spending time with family. He loved holidays and especially Christmas and all the festivities that went along with the lights and the smell of a live tree in the house.

He is survived by his wife, Martha, his three children: Robert, James, and Toni, two Daughter-in-laws: Deanna and Sherri, Son-in-law: Donald, six grandchildren: Lisa, Gordon, Jessica, Katie, Robyn and Ashley, three great-grandchildren: Kaitlyn, Allyson, and Bryanna.

He will be missed by so many. May he rest in peace.
