Trevor's life began Aug. 14, 1970 in Cedar, Minn. and his journey included residences in Lanesboro, Moose Lake, Herman, Braham, Howard Lake and Blaine, Minn. On his journey, Trevor touched the hearts of countless people across the state of Minnesota.
Trevor graduated from Braham High School in 1988. He attended St. Cloud State University for three years before enlisting in the Army Reserves, where he excelled within the ranks of military intelligence. Trevor's last employer was C. W. Houle Construction, where he was under the supervision of his friend and cousin, Randy Houle.
Trevor was a kind and compassionate man. He took care of others, especially his little brother Brandon. Trevor accepted people as they were and loved life by loving others. Family was priority #1 for Trevor, as he would make his quiet, unannounced visits to different family members just to talk and be near family and his countless infant and toddler cousins.
In Trevor's jacket, when searching for clues to his disappearance, we found a picture that his godson made for him. This exemplified how proud he was of his family.
Trevor loved sports, as testament was his final journey to Chicago to cheer on the Minnesota Gophers with plans to attend the Final Four in the following weeks. Trevor was a player and a coach who understood the intricacies and coaching strategies of every sport.
Trevor was an avid fisherman. He loved the outdoors, especially with his "fishing buddy," his dad and his Uncle Ryan.
Trevor is preceded in death by his grandfathers, Raymond and Jack.
He is survived by his parents, Riley and Lynn; his brother and sister-in-law, Brandon and Jennie; his grandmothers, Josie and Luella; stepfather Bob, and approximately 120 aunts, uncles and cousins.
