Trevor was known for the special soul that he was. All would agree Trevor was the most loyal, reliable
friend, sibling, and son. Everyone knew that if Trevor was called upon for help of any kind, he would
drop everything and would be there for you without hesitation. He was the definition of selfless and was
kind hearted. He gave without thought for recompence. Trevor had a great wit – he’d also would be the
first to laugh at himself! As well, Trevor was stubborn and you could bank on him to argue his beliefs – it
didn’t even matter if he was right or wrong! Trevor was also known as a ‘walking sports encyclopedia’.

Trevor was a most unique individual who’s passing will ever be held with sorrow for missing his smile,
hearing his contagious laughter, looking at his astonishing beard, hearing his distinct voice, and all the
endless ways he touched our hearts.
