Royden was a treasure of a man. I’ll never forget his driving over an hour to pick up window blinds for me that I couldn’t find near me. And this was the night before he was to fly to Germany on holiday with Kenny, Todd, Sharon and Ken. That was above and beyond!! Love and miss you, Royden.
Alice & Barb Forsyth-Bowley - May 30, 2022
I am so please to have had the opportunity to know Royden. I loved talking with him; he had so much experience to share. He was a very hard working man, but yet so kind and a gentleman. My sympathy to the Trimner Family. Sorry we can be with you in this difficult time.
Brenda Cramer - May 30, 2022
I’m so sorry of Royden’s passing. I don’t think he ever met a stranger. I can’t remember a time he didn’t have a smile or a wave. I have great memories of him taking a break between his farming and sitting on the porch with me. Prayers and hugs for the family.
Jacki Wiles - May 30, 2022
Royden was a friend forever, starting as a friend of my parents, then a friend of mine later, my boys also considered him a friend. Hard to find anyone that wasn’t a friend of his or didn’t know him. He and Bonnie were included in many Wiles’ conversations and get together over the years. He will be truly missed by many. Memories will always keep him in our hearts and there are many. God bless Royden and his family.
Cynthia Lewellen Branham - May 30, 2022
My heart is aching for all of the Trimner family. However, the picture I have in my mind of Bonnie giggling (she had the best giggle!) as soon as she saw Royden makes me smile. They are united again. I pray that our merciful Father grant the family comfort and peace in this difficult time. May his memory be a blessing.

Trimmer families, I’m so sorry for your loss. I have found memories of Royden and Bonnie growing up. Great farm stories were shared between my grandparents and the Trimners. I will never forget Royden nailing my brothers shoe to our houses floor because my brother would move his tools and Royden couldn’t find them. Prayers of peace and comfort.
Bill Wiles - May 29, 2022
I first met Royden and Bonnie in 1955 when my dad bought a new hay baler and we baled for Royden. A kind, friendly, hard worker over overcame a major tragedy working on a construction project. Dave, Sharon and Kenny you can be real proud of your dad and what he accomplished. He will be missed by all of us who knew and loved him. Bill Wiles

I got to know Royden at the Willows. I loved to come into work everyday and see his little face with a huge smile on it. Everyday I would say " Good morning Royden. How are you doing today.?" He would always answer " I don't know. How are you?" I will miss you terribly but I consider myself lucky to have gotten to know you. To the family...I am VERY sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers for you all.
