Richard Frank Trio

January 16, 1963 — April 25, 2021

Richard Frank Trio, Jr., of Awendaw, SC, entered into eternal rest on April 25, 2021 at the age of 58.

Born on January 16, 1963 in Youngstown, OH, Richard was the son of Donna Smuk Trio and the late Richard Frank Trio, Sr.

Richard was a natural born salesman.  His charm and charisma made him a success at selling anything -  from selling cell phones to real estate.  He made friends wherever he went and always made people laugh. Richard loved the outdoors and spent any spare moment at the beach.  But Richard was a dedicated father first and foremost.  His love for his children was unconditional and endless.  He treasured his children and embraced every moment with them.

He will be greatly missed by his family and numerous friends.

Richard is survived by his mother Donna Smuk Trio (Charlotte, NC), daughters Olivia (Chicago, IL), Alexia and Sophia (Awendaw, SC), son Brandon (Awendaw, SC), sister Dani Trio Hill and niece, Megan Hill (Charlotte, NC), and loving aunts, uncles and cousins.
