Ralph Star Trott Jr., 27, a resident of Eagles Way, died suddenly at his residence the evening of Feb. 24. 2010.

Ralph was born June 29, 1982, in Waterville, the son of Ralph S. Sr. and Mary Carter Trott. He attended Medomak Valley High School, where he met the love of his life, Charise, whom he married Feb. 2, 2008.

He was employed by the RZR Hardware Store in Waldoboro for the last 10 years, working primarily in the grain room.

Ralph loved to spend time with his family and buddies, as a outdoorsman, he always enjoyed the hunt, even if the deer were good at eluding him, fishing, mud runs, spinning his tires “till they popped,” as he was fond of saying, working on his Chevys, being a redneck and watching the races on Sunday afternoon, catching a nap with his kids napping beside him during the middle of the race and waking up for the last five laps every time.

He is survived by his wife, Charise Bachelder Trott of Warren; his son, Shawn Trott of Warren; his daughter, Alexa Trott of Warren; his mother, Mary Libby and her husband, Jerry, of Jefferson; his father, Ralph Trott Sr. and his wife, Rose, of New York; his brother, Josh Trott of Waldoboro; his nephew, Josh Trott of Waldoboro; his maternal grandmother, Eunice Carter of Augusta; and a wide circle of extended family and friends.

A celebration of Ralph’s life will be held Wednesday, March 10 at 10 a.m. at the First Baptist Church of Waldoboro.

Memorial donations may be made to The First, Route 1, Waldoboro, ME 04572 for a trust fund to benefit Shawn.

Arrangements are with the Hall Funeral Home and Cremation Service in Waldoboro.
