Sammy J. Trump, 91, of Noblesville, Ind., passed away peacefully at his home on April 24, 2021.
Sammy was born to William E. and Anna (Wright) Trump in Hymera, Ind.
Mr. Trump graduated from Hymera High School in 1947. He loved his hometown and would try to return each year for the Annual Alumni Banquet to relive the "good old days" with his classmates. He married the love of his life, Violet L. (Santus) in 1952, after serving his country in the U S Army, before and during the Korean War. He and Violet had five children. Sammy spent many years employed with the L. E. Myers Company before forming his own power line construction company, Trump Construction Inc., with his sons in 1977. Mr. Trump was often referred to as "The General" by his friends and family because he was such a hard worker with a strong work ethic and highly respected by those in the power line construction business.
Over the years Mr. Trump enjoyed playing baseball, camping, fishing, hunting, playing golf and hosting fish frys for his beloved friends and family, which he held near and dear to his heart. He was an avid fan of the Chicago Cubs, Indiana Pacers and IU basketball.
Survivors include two sons, Gary (Lisa) Trump, Gregory (Ana Shull) Trump; and daughter, Candice (Rick) Womack; his daughter in law, Lori Trump (widow of son Jeffrey Trump); grandchildren, Amber, Travis (Julie), April (Roger), Tanner (Christina), Jared (Katie), Joel and Erin (John); six great-grandchildren; one step-granddaughter; and three step-great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by one brother, William Jr. Trump; and his two oldest sons, Terry J. Trump and Jeffrey A. Trump.
A private graveside ceremony will take place at a later date, when his ashes are buried at Crownland Cemetery in Noblesville.
