Stephen Allen Tromm

March 04, 1965 ‒ June 22, 2021

Marion, Ohio

Stephen Allen Tromm, age 56, of Marion, passed away June 22, 2021, peacefully in his home.

On March 4, 1965, Stephen was born at Marion General Hospital. The son of the late Betty and William Tromm Sr. He graduated from Marion Harding High School in 1983, and attended Hobe Sound Bible College in Florida.

Stephen was a huge kid at heart and had jokes for days. He had such a mischievous and playful personality. Always playing light hearted pranks and wanting to keep everyone laughing. The moment you mentioned a game of cards, Stephen was the first to be at the table shuffling the deck; never wanting to be left out of a good card game. He was a hardcore Michigan, WWE and Steelers fan, but we would never hold that against him. Stephen enjoyed being active, if he wasn’t on the softball field, or fishing with his brothers, then the next place to check was the golf course. However, on Sunday mornings and any other chance he got, Stephen could be found volunteering or worshipping at Dayspring Wesleyan Church.

Stephen’s loved ones will continue to honor his legacy by living their life to the fullest. He is survived by ex-wife, Anne Nielssen Tromm; brothers: William (Nancy) Tromm Jr, Robert (Mary) Tromm Sr, James Tromm, and Michael Tromm; sister, Janet (Thomas) Broughton; nephews: Dwayne (Kimberly) Broughton, Robert (Elizabeth) Tromm Jr, Eric (Elizabeth) Stevens, and James Tromm; nieces: Mandi Tromm, Shurrie (Jason) Bean, Mandy (Jack) Darling, Kendra Tromm, and Kelly (Scott) Barr.

He was preceded in death by his parents: William Sr. and Betty (Campton)Tromm; and his sister, Catherine (Buddy) Marshall.

His family will greet friends from 4 – 6 pm on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, at the Dayspring Wesleyan Church, 2431 Marion-Mt Gilead Rd, Marion. Services honoring his life will follow there at 6 pm, with Pastor Doug Bryan officiating.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to dress as Stephen would be, in your favorite sport team shirt and shorts.

Memorial contributions may be made to the funeral home.

  • Steve, Buddy, Big- just some of the names I called you. June 13th was Elly’s birthday and the last time I saw you. I will miss our dinner and movie night, playing games and hanging out and talking with you. Your funny jokes and great sense of humor were always a welcome refreshment. I had no idea how much impact you would have on my life in some of my worst struggles. You are missed now and forever. I hope you know how much I cared about you and your well-being. Your huge, giving heart and compassion have been noticed by so many and missed by all of us. You heard the trumpets sound and your body is restored.
    (Now there should be brain activity 😂)
    Love you 😘
