Thank you for your service. Condolences to the family.

My sincere condolences to the Trumphour family. He was a good and kind man with a great sense of humor.

Cecil Trumphour and Roger Burckhart worked together on several excavating projects for me. He was a good man!

Cecil and I alway talked Cleveland Browns and Buckeyes. I grew up on a farm and by golly we had some good times.

My deepest sympathy in the passing of your dear husband, father, grandfather. My husband Phil graduated with Cecil...... always considered him a special friend. I knew Cecil for over 50 years... having met him during the many years Phil and I were together. Always kind and enjoyed talking with him. Prayers are with the family.

Peace, love and prayers to Barbara and Family from the entire Burckhart Family. Cecil was a valued friend and indispensable member of Roger's crew for so many years and always so gentle & kind. We'll always be grateful for how hard Cecil worked to make the family homestead pristine & beautiful for our wedding day in August, 1994. Rest In Peace, Cecil, we will miss you...

My condolences to the family during this difficult time.

Barb and children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and friends of Cecil, I send love and prayers.
May God bless you all and give you peace in the knowledge that Cecil rest with him now.

Barb and family, we are so sorry for your loss. May your memories comfort you.
