      Trent Burroughs

      A native Sacramentan, Trent was born on April 11, 1930. He passed peacefully into God's care on January 4, 2008. A loving husband and father, he is survived by MarlaLuisa, his wife of 43 year, his daughter Francesca and son-in-law Robert Pearson of Livermore; his sister Brooke VanZandt of Colorado, his brother Geoffrey and sister-in-law Mollie Burroughs of Sacramento, and many nieces and nephews and dear cousins.

      Trent's parents, Olga and Spencer Burroughs moved to Sacramento from Susanville in 1922 to the Curtis Park area. Trent graduated from C. K. McClatchy High School and California State University, Sacramento. After serving in the U.S. Army as an artillery fire control coordinator, he worked for the U.S. Post Office for 32 years. Trent was a gifted Chess player; so much so that a disgruntled neighbor, having found no one to better him in Sacramento, went to San Francisco and brought back a highly rated chess player to challenge him -- after an ardious battle on the chess board they drew. Trent also had an interest in higher mathematics taking such abstruse courses as non-Euclidian geometry and abstract algrebra. As an athlete he was a superlative tennis player and in his younger days an ace receiver for once famous Curtis Park Clippers football team. In his later years he became an accomplished bowler winning a number of local tournaments. He often bowled a 600 series and once was eleven strikes toward the perfect 300 game when he got a nasty split. His only comment was, Mmmm, a high on that one, I think.

      A mass of Christian buriai will be held at Immaculate Conception Parish, 3263 First Avenue, Sacramento at 10:00am on Monday, Januray 14, 2008. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charity of your choice.
