Eddie Trivino

February 20, 2021

Eddie C. Trivino was born to Irma and Luis Trivino on November 16, 1980. On February 20, 2021 he unexpectedly earned his wings in heaven with our Lord Jesus Christ. He was raised in the valley of Espanola, where he went to school, had many friends, and met the love of his life and soulmate, Christina, who he was married to for 21 years. He enlisted in the United States Army and proudly served as an Airborne Infantryman. Eddie was very proud to be a paratrooper, and excelled in the military, where he received Soldier of the month, Soldier of the quarter, and earned his Expert Infantryman Badge and received many other trainings. He completed Basic Training, AIT, and Airborne School all at Fort Benning, Georgia. He was assigned to the OPFOR 1-509th Infantry Regiment at Fort Polk, Louisiana, who’s mottos are “All the Way” and “Geronimo.” They were known as “The Geronimo’s” and Eddie was always saying “Geronimo” or “Hooah.”

After discharging from the military, he worked for the City of Espanola, where he began his path with working in utilities, and later went on to work for Los Alamos County GWS department. He was very knowledgeable in all areas of utilities as well as in operating heavy equipment.

Eddie was a devoted husband, who would do absolutely anything and everything to please his wife. In his words “I would move mountains for you woman.”  His three children, Alejandro, Vanessa, and Esmeralda, were his pride and joy. In his eyes, his children could accomplish anything in the world. He always spoke highly of his family to everyone he encountered.

Eddie was a very friendly person who made friends with complete strangers, everywhere he went, often exchanging phone numbers and inviting people over to eat, and opened his home up to everyone. To Eddie, every occasion was always a reason to celebrate with lots of friends, family, and food. He was always a jokester who would play pranks on everyone, and crack jokes because he loved to make people smile and laugh, and always went out of his way to make everyone feel special. He always helped anyone who needed help, from giving rides to people (both known or unknown), buying food for people, helping friends or family with baling hay, or other ranch work, or letting people stay at his house if they had nowhere to stay. The word “no” was not in his vocabulary. He had the biggest heart, yet was fearless.

Eddie enjoyed being outdoors, hunting and fishing, especially with his brother Robert. He took great pride in everything he did, and was meticulous with all things he set his mind to.

Eddie is survived by his wife Christina “Threm” Trivino, his children Alejandro, Vanessa, and Esmeralda Trivino, siblings, Luis Trivino and wife, Stephenie, Robert Trivino and wife, Leigh, Margaret “Maggie” Trivino and husband, Martin Roybal, Diedra Trivino, and Mark Trivino, mother and father in law, who he loved dearly, David “Mr. Garcia” and Mary Ann Garcia, and his two brothers in law who were like his kid brothers Esequiel “Easy” and Vicente  “Vinny” Garcia, and many, many friends and relatives.

He was preceded in death by his parents Luis “Indio” Trivino, and Irma Trivino, and sister Terrie Martinez.
