Gregory Carl Trindle

27 Nov 1949 - 12 Apr 2015

12 Mar 2015
A native of Sacramento, Greg was a graduate of El Camino High School, American River College, and Sacramento State University.  He moved to Redwood City in 1972 when he was hired by the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.  Over his thirty-six year career he worked in every corner of the county, spent nearly twenty years with the SWAT team and rose through the ranks to Asst. Sheriff.

Upon retiring in 2008, he enjoyed his new found leisure by traveling, fly fishing, hiking and playing with his five beautiful grandchildren Madison, Carissa and Daniston Carbullido and Alexis and Nicholas Mersch.

His two-month battle with pancreatic cancer was extremely short-lived but filled with stories, love and friendship, and vists and calls from family and friends both, old and new.  It was a time to treasure, and he made the best of it, as he always did.

Besides his grandchildren, Greg is survived by his wife of 44 years, Cath, and his two daughters, Jessica (Scott) Carbullido of Portland, OR and Andi (Eric) Mersh of San Francisco.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to the San Mateo County Parks Foundation or California State Parks Foundation.

Chess board, pieces and checkers all created by Greg........
