Obituary of Peter James Trinche

Peter Trinche, 66, of Bayville, New York, passed peacefully from this world on May 24th, 2021, after a long illness. Raised in Glen Head, he was a 1973 graduate of North Shore High School and continued his education at Ball State University and the University of Illinois, where he earned undergraduate and graduate degrees. Peter was a gifted trumpet player who had a fulfilling career teaching music at Long Island schools and privately, retiring from the Longwood Central School District in 2017. During his career, Peter performed at a variety of venues, including churches, civic celebrations, and Broadway. He was also active in judging New York State music competitions. His hope was to foster in his students an enduring dedication to musical enjoyment and achievement. Peter was also an avid ham radio operator from his teen years, an enthusiastic member of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church choir, a world traveler, and a living testament to optimism, positivity, bravery, and love of life. His gentle, loving soul and radiant smile will be remembered by all who knew him. Peter was the beloved son of the late Frances and Albert Trinche, cherished brother of Louise and the late brothers Albert Jr. and Christopher (Lori), dear uncle of Matthew and Evan Hockett (Marybeth), and fond grand uncle of Emerson and Isla.
