Donny Trout was a devoted son, father, husband, grandpa, brother and friend. He lost his life on August 26th, 2019 as a result of a pedestrian accident in front of his home in Bakersfield, CA.

Surviving are his wife April Renee Trout, son Cole Tyler Trout, stepson Anthony Stephen Hawkey (wife Kayla Ann Hawkey with children Savannah and Cheyanne), mother Helen Laverne Trout, sister Michelle Ruth Trout, sister-in-law Crystal Ann Rose, and many more friends and family.
Donny enjoyed bike riding and rock climbing the Bluffs of Twin Oaks with his son, Cole. He enjoyed celebrating the accomplishments of his stepson Anthony, including his graduation to become a U.S. Marine. Donny met his wife in the 11th grade on a rope swing in Fullerton, CA. They were married for nearly twenty years and planned to renew their vows on February 20th, 2020.
Donny was faithfully devoted to taking care of his mother, Helen and was always there to help anyone in need. One his days off you would often find him fixing cars of his friends. He worked for years at PAPE Machinery as a forklift technician.
Donny was loved by all, especially his family, who will miss him dearly. The family finds comfort in the knowledge that Donny has been reunited with his precious daughter in Heaven.
Any memorial services will be held privately by family and friends. In lieu of flowers or donations, Donny would have preferred for all to gather and enjoy their quality time together. Think of him when you see the smile on each other’s faces and the joy of togetherness it brings.
PSALM 116:15 “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His faithful ones.”
