Tribute & Message From The Family

Loving father & Grandfather


Francis "Frank" E. Trendle, age 50, passed away suddenly at his home on Friday, May 28, 2021 in Chester County, PA.

He was born at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Darby to Raymond "Buddy" and Elizabeth "Chickie' Trendle (nee Repino) on Sept. 28, 1970 and was the youngest of three children. Frank attended Upper Darby High School, but like his father, he quickly developed a life long passion for cars. He would go on to work as a collision repair technician (later manager0 for over 30 years and most recently as a Materials Damage Appraiser at Erie Insurance for six years.

Frank's memory will be cherished and kept alive by his surviving Children Lynnsey Moyer, Alyssa Moyer Trendle, Benjamin Trendle and Brandon Trendle and his Grandson Daniel Francis Napolitano III, his siblings; Raymond John Trendle Jr. and Christine Gallo; and his two dogs Dutchie and Raymond.

Frank will be most easily remembered for his bright personally, ease to get along with, unfailing work ethic, captivating smile, entertaining stories, oxygen-depriving hugs, friendly teasing, unique sense of humor, and the mullet he was so proud of in the 80s. Further, he loved sharing his passion for cars with his children and always enjoyed the company of his friends and family. His hobbies included going trout fishing, taking his cars and Harley Davidson's Motorcycles out for long drives, playing with any dog in sight, goofing around with his "toys" (cars, motorcycles, boats, etc) and spending time with his grandson. He was an amazing grandpop and was thrilled to finally have someone his "age" to play with.

Relatives and friends are invited to his Viewing Friday Evening 6:00- 9:00 p.m. and Saturday Morning 10:30 – 12:15 PM. at The D'Anjolell Barone Memorial Home 908 S. Providence Rd. Wallingford, PA 19086. Followed by his funeral Service at 12:30 P.M. Interment Calvary Cemetery.

Our condolences to Frank's family for the loss of their brother and father. Frank had a rare trait of knowing the right way to live life and it showed in his love of family and choice of friends. He was genuine and was a barrel of laughs to be with. My time working with Frank was always an adventure and his talents beyond compare. His love of the '68 Z28 302 and his Harley was only overshadowed by his zest for life and his love of his children. Frank loved Bugs Bunny cartoons and was hilarious and could recite the voice of Rocky the Gangster to such a degree you would swear it was Mel Blanc. Heaven has its very own "Trendle-izer" now but the real tribute to this man is that he will be missed and will live within us forever. Our prayers for the Trendle family and may he Rest in Peace.

This just isn't right! Frank is too good a guy to be gone so soon. He was a good friend who i met through our industry and had many laughs in the field before i was able to Hire him into the other end of the industry(Insurance Company). I, like everyone else will miss him dearly and have hopes that you, his family, will be ok in the upcoming days/weeks/months. I'll keep his memory alive in my heart as so many others will. Ride into the heavens Frank, i'm sure they've got Harleys there waiting for you!!

My memories of Frank will be of how he had a passion for living a good and righteous life. He was driven to do things to perfection as there was no other way to do anything. Mostly it
will be of how much he loved to laugh. His laughter was so heartfelt and contagious, that you had no choice but to laugh along with him.
My condolences to family and friends for the void that has been left in your lives.

My condolences to Brandon and the Trendle family for your loss. Frank was one of a kind and we worked together for a lot of years and became really good friends. There was nothing he wouldn't do for anyone who came in contact with him. We formed such a strong Car Bond and for that i will always be thankful. Rest in peace my friend and Brandon said it right when he told me you are probably already building God's Hot Rods.
