Roy Glenn Trapp (’54, ’64 M.Ed.) 85, of Denton, died Aug. 23, 2015. He joined North Texas in 1966 as an instructor in industrial arts and continued teaching in the program as it was renamed industrial technology and later engineering technology. He retired as an assistant professor in 1993. His teaching specialties included architectural technology and technical illustration.
After serving in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War, he completed his degrees in industrial arts education at North Texas. He also did graduate work at Texas A&M University. Between degrees he began his career at Shell Pipeline Corp. as an engineering design draftsman and moved to Mobil Oil Co. before focusing on teaching.
At North Texas, he was a member and faculty alumni advisor of the Kappa Alpha Order. He was known for his dry sense of humor and quick wit. A former student remembers his famous quote: “The answer is no. Now what’s the question?”
