Addison Raymond “Ray” Trismen, 90, passed away peacefully at home on June 2nd, 2018. The son of Addison Trismen and Gwendolyn, nee Sheldon, Trismen, and beloved husband of Roberta, nee Cassidy, Trismen, he was born on Staten Island, where he attended Curtis High School and completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Business at Wagner College. Continuing his education at New York University, he earned an MBA degree in Accounting, which enabled him to enter the corporate world, an endeavor he would follow throughout his professional career as a CPA and partner in Henry F. Malarkey & Co. Ray honorably served his country in the United States Navy at the end of World War II.
Married for 67 years, Ray and Roberta “Bobbe” resided in Great Kills, Staten Island and ultimately retired to Shadow Lake Village of Middletown, NJ. While on Staten Island, Ray was active in his community, having served as treasurer of the Richmond County Yacht Club, treasurer of Monsignor Farrell High School Father’s Club, and president of the Staten Island Chapter of the New York State Society of CPAs. Ray enjoyed golf, music (he played several instruments), bowling, boating and tennis. In his retirement, he was a member of the St. Anthony of Padua Church community in Red Bank.
