He was elected to the City Commission in 1961 by defeating incumbent commissioner Charlie Hackmeyer. He was defeated for re-election in 1965 by challenger Lambert C. Mims who would go on to serve in the position for 20 years. He had a park named after him, Trimmier Park at 3600 Alba Club Rd in Mobile, AL. He died in a car accident in 1967.[1]
