Christopher Damon Trouts


The Lord called home Christopher D. Trouts, 41, of Pipersville on Sunday, April 24, 2022. He was lovingly surrounded by his family as he prepared to meet the Lord.

Chris was born at Doylestown Hospital and raised in Ottsville of beautiful Bucks County to Dennis and Margaret (Breiner).

He was the beloved husband of Melissa A. (Branyan) of 14 years and devoted father of his three sons, Conner D., William F., and Andrew L. and his first family pet dog Dezzy (whom he rescued and named).

He is also survived by parents, grandfather William Bleam, sister Jennifer Guelich, brother-in-law Matthew Guelich; son-in-law of Frederick and Leona (Osuch) Branyan; sister-in-law Suzanne Tieder, brother-in-law Nicholas Tieder, nieces Hailey Weil, Vienna Tieder, Chloe Tieder, and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

On the stairway to heaven, he was greeted by grandparents Al Breiner, Irene Breiner (Reigle), and June Bleam. As a child, Chris loved building with his Legos, go cart racing, fishing and deer hunting trips with his dad, grandfathers, cousins and uncles.

He attended Tinicum Elementary, followed by Palisades Middle School and High School. He participated in track and field and developed an interest in environmental studies during his high school years.

He graduated from Drexel University in 2003 as an environmental engineer and Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity brother.

He worked for Roux, and then Environmental Resources Management (ERM) for 15 years as a consultant in the air permitting division. He was a devoted husband and adoring father to his three little men. He was a gifted handyman who could fix and build just about anything. He lovingly tended to his property inside and out, always making sure it looked well-kept while showing his sons “the ropes” of yardwork and craftsmanship.

Chris had a fondness for classic cars and loved taking his sons to several local car shows during his fatherhood years. He thoroughly enjoyed hosting holidays and gatherings, enthusiastically welcoming family to his home and table. Chris was a family guy through and through, always ready to lend a helping hand, visit a grandparent, and make memories with joyful togetherness.

He had the gift of gab, quick wit, and a truly magnetic, lovable, and friendly personality. His soul and spirit are incredibly strong, and live on in the hearts of the many he loved and adored. Chris’ genuine warmth, enduring strength, legacy, and lifetime will always be cherished and forever remembered.

Relatives and friends are invited to Chris’ Celebration of Life memorial Mass at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, 5194 Cold Spring Creamery Road, Doylestown, PA 18902 on Wednesday, May 4, 2022 at 1 p.m. A memorial gathering will be held from 10 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. prior to Mass.
