Jim Trelut

Jim Trelut, husband to Lynda, father to Alex, son to Isabel and brother to George Trelut died Oct. 2, 2003, at age 57.

Cancer got him, but not until the very end. He lived a life of integrity and honesty and he got through the last four years the very best he could.

Jim was born in San Francisco and was a 49er fan through thin and thick and thin again. He loved his Serra High School classmates of 1964 as they were friends for life. San Mateo was his home until he left to finish college in South Lake Tahoe where he accumulated more experiences, friends and a wife. Of that time, he particularly liked telling friends about his lighting job in the theater at Sahara Tahoe and his favorite story of running 41 Elvis shows.

Gilroy has been home since 1974 where Jim built a human resource department for Nob Hill Foods. The “dean of boys” truly loved the job best when he was able to creatively help employees with work problems.

In retirement, Jim found great pleasure racing formula Mazdas at Infinion Raceway. He looked forward to golf on Thursdays with his buddies who counseled him on the finer points of retirement as well as the game. He had a life-long love of numismatics.

Jim spent a tour in Vietnam that made an indelible impression on him.

A Frenchman in spirit all his life, Jim always celebrated Bastille Day. He tried unsuccessfully to learn French and settled for drinking French wine instead.

Jim also leaves sister-in-law Carol Trelut and family; sister-in-law Chris Bevilacqua and husband Don and family; brother-in-law Michael Bonfante and wife Claudia and family; and cousin Pat Hegerhorst and husband Carl.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers any donations be made to the Gilroy Foundation or St. Joseph’s Family Center of Gilroy. No matter what, remember him as “a nice guy” because that’s what he wanted.

A memorial services took place Monday at the Gilroy Presbyterian Church, under direction of Habing Family Funeral Home.
