Trumpeter, Friend of the College Dies

March 11, 2006

Forest Trubey ‘46, who was featured prominently in one of the College’s recent planned giving publications, died December 7, 2005.

Trubey had a passion for both science and music. He taught science at Milwaukie Junior High School for 35 years and trumpet at the Schuster School of Music in Portland for 25 years.

In 1980, Forest and his sister, Doris ‘41 (now deceased), established the Olive Trubey and Inez Schuster Fund, which helps purchase music, instruments, and equipment for Lewis & Clark students. Assets from Forest’s estate are earmarked for this fund.
