On Monday, September 7, 2020, Tom Trainor of Scott Township, passed peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family after a courageous ten month battle with glioblastoma. Beloved son of the late Rosella and Regis Trainor; devoted husband of 56 years to Virginia (Colella) Trainor; loving father to Mark (Lisa) Trainor, Kristin (Earl) Hertzog, and Craig Trainor; kind brother to Daniel (Sandra) Trainor, Barbara Hagerty, and the late David Trainor; cherished grandfather/Baba to Noah, Dylan and Sydney Trainor, John and Evelyn Hertzog and Lauren Trainor; also survived by loving sister-in laws Marilyn (Roger) Nemrava, Barbara (Robert) Williams, and Donna (late Keithley) Mulvihill; and many nieces and nephews. Tom was a graduate of Duquesne University, M.S. Ed., and taught for over thirty-five years in the Bethel Park School District and at St. Anne’s in Mt. Lebanon. He was a favorite teacher and coach (affectionately nicknamed Pie) to his many Bethel Park basketball and tennis athletes over the years. A proud USMC veteran and grandfather, Tom committed everyday in small, kind ways to making everyone’s life just a little bit easier. Friends and family will always remember Tom’s infectious smile, friendly chats, famous pancakes, happy memories and his sense of humor.
