Addison Raymond “Ray” Trismen, 90, passed away peacefully at home June 2. The son of Addison and Gwendolyn (neé Sheldon) Trismen, and beloved husband of Roberta (neé Cassidy) Trismen, he was born on Staten Island, where he attended Curtis High School and completed a Bachelor of Science degree in business at Wagner College. Continuing his education at New York University, he earned an MBA degree in accounting, which enabled him to enter the corporate world, an endeavor he would follow throughout his professional career as a CPA and partner in Henry F. Malarkey & Co. Ray honorably served his country in the United States Navy at the end of World War II.
Married for 67 years, Ray and Roberta “Bobbe” resided in Great Kills, Staten Island and ultimately retired to Shadow Lake Village in Middletown. While on Staten Island, Ray was active in his community, having served as treasurer of the Richmond County Yacht Club, treasurer of Monsignor Farrell High School Father’s Club and president of the Staten Island Chapter of the New York State Society of CPAs. Ray enjoyed golf, music (he played several instruments), bowling, boating and tennis. In his retirement, he was a member of the St. Anthony of Padua Church community in Red Bank.
Ray’s energy and his visible caring for people and his community will be sorely missed, most especially by his wife, Bobbe, and their children: sons and spouses, Harry and Deborah Trismen of Englewood, Florida; Raymond and Karol Lee Trismen of Darien, Connecticut; and Robert and Ian Lang of New York City; and his daughter Pamela and her husband James Polisin of Maplewood; his grandchildren, Laura and her husband Derek, Douglas, Andrew, Rick, Harris, Peter and Jack; great-granddaughters Paige and Claire; and several nieces and nephews.
Visitation was held June 5 at the John E. Day Funeral Home, Red Bank. A Mass of Christian Burial was held June 6 at St. Anthony’s of Padua, Red Ban. Following the mass, burial took place at Moravian Cemetery, Staten Island.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a donation in Ray’s memory to the Grace Hospice, 105 Fieldcrest Ave., Suite 402, Edison, NJ (866-447-0246).
