Continuing the Crook County News Since 1884

Lee Edward Tromble

Lee Edward Tromble, 82, of Sundance, Wyoming, entered into his Savior’s presence on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, in Sundance.

Lee was born in Seeley, Wyoming, on January 21, 1939. His parents, Thea and Viva Tromble, homesteaded in Seeley. Lee, a very talented man, worked as a rancher, in aviation and in heavy equipment construction.

But beyond his vocations, his greatest passions were hunting, fishing and aviation. He was also an avid gardener and always had special bonds with his horses and dogs.

His heart, though, was for his family and for those who needed an introduction to his Heavenly Father. In this light, he served in the Gideon’s International.

He loved handing out testaments on the college and university campuses, in schools, in hospitals and in nursing homes. He especially loved visiting with anyone who seemed alone and in need of an introduction to Jesus.

He also put his great talents to use in missionary construction in Mexico in both churches and Bible schools. In between the building projects, he taught many Bible school students valuable trade skills, such as welding.

He is survived by his wife, Kay; his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren; cousins, nieces and nephews. He also left behind a sizeable garden for his wife to weed and nurture.

Although he is missed more than can be expressed in mere words, we know that he’s rejoicing, whole again, in the presence of the Lord.

A graveside service was held on Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at Mount Moriah Cemetery at Sundance.

Arrangements are under the care of Fidler-Roberts & Isburg Funeral Chapel of Sundance. Online condolences may be written at
