Alexander “Butch” Trup, 73, of Easton, CT, passed away on February 11, 2019 in Bridgeport. He is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Barbara E. (Sutyak) Trup and his dedicated children Barry J. Trup, Sara E. Baczewski and Lisa S. Marshall and seven grandchildren. Butch will be remembered for his honorable service in the U.S. Marine Corps, which included two tours in Vietnam. After being honorably discharged from the service, he began his thirty-eight year career as a Lead Lineman with the United Illuminating Company in Shelton. In Butch’s retirement, he enjoyed the life of being a grandfather and revisiting his childhood passions of hunting, fishing and tinkering with tools in his garage. When Butch wasn’t actively engaged with hobbies or busy with grandchildren, he was making daily rounds visiting favorite social pastimes. Butch will be remembered for his willingness to help anyone in need, and opening his home to hot coffee and a good story.
