Jerry Lee Trowbridge Aka “Trow” 66, of Defiance Ohio went home to be with family and friends, May 8, 2020 in Toledo Ohio while he was with his beloved daughter, and “right hand man” Jennifer Lynn Trowbridge and mother of two of his daughters, Terry Pessefall.
Jerry Lee was born November 8, 1953 to Mary Elizabeth Trowbridge(Throop) and Roy Allen Trowbridge Sr, in Defiance Ohio. Though Jerry travelled to 37 of the 50 states, Defiance remained his home, it’s where his heart belonged. Defiance, Ohio will be a little less bright without his shining smile and his beloved car engines rumbling about. He will most likely be remembered for his intense love of fast cars, his fun loving, caring heart, strong fighting spirit, wild sense of humor, and for his extraordinary culinary and baking skills. He loved playing bingo, traveling, bowling, skating, playing cards, swimming, sports, fishing, dancing and listening to “good ole” rock-n-roll with family.
He is survived by his three daughters; Claudia Darlene Roberts, of Paulding Ohio, Jennifer Lynn Trowbridge (Noel Rivera) of Akron Ohio, and Catherine Elizabeth Trowbridge of Paulding Ohio, his girls’ mom Terry Pessefall Akron Ohio, his best friend for 20 years Dennis Tuohy of Defiance Ohio, his sister Helen Webber of Defiance Ohio, his brother Terry Trowbridge of Locust Grove Georgia, as well as many nieces, nephews, family friends and many of his children’s friends, that he treated as his own, will all deeply miss Jerry.
He is proceeded in death by his mother Mary Trowbridge, father Roy Trowbridge, grandparents Dora and Oren Throop, his older Brother Roy Trowbridge Jr, sisters Barbara Stemen, Linda Lather and June Weber, as well as a “non-biological daughter” Amanda Love, or as he called her and she him, “Valentine”.
There will be no services at this immediate time. The family and friends will be hosting a large celebration of life just as Jerry would like, in the near future. Announcements of such celebrations will be announced via Facebook on Jerry Trowbridge’s page.
The family would like to extend their sincerest thanks to the countless people that have been supportive, comforting and offering condolences in this most grievous time. The family would like to ask you to share any fond memories with Jerry that you may have, to help them during their mourning, as is a Trowbridge family tradition of story telling.
