During the summer months he loved to race BMX and attend sports camps. He graduated from Kamiakin HS in 2005. Trevor then attended CBC and graduated from the welding technology program in 2010. He was working as a welder in Grandview at the time of his death and was going to start a new job in a Pasco fabrication shop in a week. He was very excited about this latest opportunity and was at one of the highest points in his life when he was taken from this earth all too soon.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that those who wish to, can donate to the HAPO branch account set up for his son, Jack.

A special thank you goes out to Don Curry, CBC welding instructor, and all of the students who donated their time in the preparation of Trevor's beautiful urn. It is just what he would have wanted.
