Trevor grew up in Pomona, California, with his parents and three sisters. He attended school at St. Paul’s Lutheran as a child, followed by Lutheran High LaVerne. He was firm in his faith, and valued science and knowledge. He moved to Nebraska from California the summer of 1990, where he met Sheryl Kehm. They were married June 12th, 1995. He was a working man, who valued both his family and financial stability. Diagnosed with Stage 4 colorectal cancer on October 8th, 2019, he worked until he was no longer able to. During his journey, he was pleasant, patient and strong until the very end. He passed, peacefully, surrounded by his family, visited by his friends, and knew that he was blessed and loved until the very end.
