David Trout

As one of the founding partners of Coffin & Trout Fine Jewelers, the late David Trout had a wonderful opportunity to touch many people’s lives. David’s spirit and legacy will live on in Coffin & Trout Fine Jewellers and in all of the family members and friends he left behind. His true passion was design. David earned numerous national and international design awards. His innovative Pagoda ring, featured in Coffin & Trout’s Masterpiece Collection, is on display at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. This ring was donated as a tribute to David, his passion and artistic innovation. The emerging designer wore many hats in the industry before finally meeting his business partner, Randy Coffin, in 1979. They quickly became friends and the creative spark was lit. Making unique, beautiful and functional jewelry, while offering unbeatable customer service was the foundation for their company and earned them the respect of their customers and colleagues. David’s infectious smile, quick wit and genuine manner were the reasons that people were drawn to him. His charm and honesty were why you stayed. Dave, you are greatly missed.

Philanthropy

It is an integral part of this company’s culture to be actively involved in the community that gives us so much. From the beginning, Randy, Dave and their employees have felt a strong responsibility to give back to those around them. Over the years Coffin & Trout has given countless hours and more than $400,000 in merchandise donations and financial contributions.

Randy Coffin serves as a Board Member for the Tempe Diablos. Since 1968, members have devoted their time and energy to promoting, organizing and supporting community-based programs that focus on youth, education and the city of Tempe. This is accomplished by providing leadership and resources that create worthwhile opportunities for our Arizona youth. The Tempe Diablos are the 2nd largest private provider for Arizona State University scholarships.

Dave Trout served as a Board Member for the Phoenix Suns Charities. Incorporated in 1987, its mission is to be a constant leader in improving the quality of life in our community by benefiting organizations that assist the needs of children in Arizona. Since its inception, Phoenix Suns Charities, the team and their fans and sponsors have donated more than $10 million to worthy Arizona organizations.

Our sales manager, Dean Reiter, was accepted to join the Board of Directors in 2009 and is actively contributing to the work of the Phoenix Suns Charities.

In 2009, Brad Gould and Randy Coffin began the Dave Trout Memorial Golf Tournament to honor their friend and his commitment to charities he loved. With the amazing support of David’s parents, Marty and Barbara Trout, and the efforts of his family and friends, this event has been a resounding success.
