Richard Mark Trial
Richard Mark Trial entered into eternal rest on Monday, Aug. 18, 2014, after a short battle with cancer. The fifth of six children, he was born in San Antonio, Texas, on June 8, 1957, to Sylvester and Mary Louise Trial.
Richard graduated from Richard King High School in Corpus Christi. He moved to Kenedy, where he spent the next 28 years. His loves included watching the San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Cowboys, playing bingo, and listening to country music. Richard was blessed with a family who dearly loved him and several close friends. He will be fondly remembered and missed, said his family. Special thanks to all of Richard’s special care providers: his caseworker, caretaker, health-care nurse, all the caregivers at Bluebonnet Nursing Home, and hospice Nurses In Touch.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and a brother.
Richard is survived by his siblings, Kathleen Denise Kostas and husband Stephen and Cheryl Ann Trial, all of Rochester Hills, Mich., Kenneth Charles Trial and wife Debra of Hobson, Bobbie Jean Sturm and husband Raymond of Austin, and Thomas Michael Trial and wife Sharon of Richards; 11 eleven nieces and nephews dear to his heart, Heather Rogers Sanko and husband Ken, Ryan Love, Brandon Love and wife Annita, Rhiana Trial Masek and husband Jason, Austin Trial and wife Sheena, Shaina Trial Ahmadi and husband Jahan, Robin Sturm Hogan and husband Mike, Julie Sturm, David Sturm and wife Caroline, Brianne Benton and husband Lee, and Cameron Trial; great-nephews Gavin and Aidan Love, Matthew, Jacob, and Joshua Love, and Walter James Hogan and Austin “Turner” Trial; and great-nieces Skylar Pavelka and Louise Elizabeth Hogan.
