Mary, there are simply no words to express my sympathy for you and yours. Just know you and your family are in my prayers. Lisa Thompson Campbell , June 13, 2021 Mary, Jay & Molly, You are in our prayers. We are so sad because Trey is no longer with us. We miss him dearly. Trey fought the good fight, he ran the course laid out for him. He walked the path on this earth that God had for him. We are sad, but the angels are rejoicing. When Trey closed his eyes here on earth, he opened them to see his Lord & Savior Jesus Christ and our glorious creators face. Trey is home. So many great memories. So many good times. He was a man of God who truly loved his family and all those around him. Hold on to his love and the great memories. See you soon brother. Love, Blake & Devry Blake & Devry Smith, June 12, 2021 Mary, Jay, Molly & Family - the gift of life is a privilege and while not guaranteed, the gift of grace and mercy is sure and purposeful in Christ.

We are so happy that you all moved in next to us and we got to raise the kids, and dogs, together. He was a great example of a devoted family man and we are honored that we got to know him. Know that your family will always be in our thoughts and prayers. Jim and Teresa Jim and Teresa Davoli, June 9, 2021 We were just starting to get to know Trey and it was obvious that he loved the Lord and his family and golf! And in that order. We appreciate the time we spent with Trey on the mission’s committee and then as an elder. We had hoped that he could come to Canada and we could take him to some of the golf courses in the mountains but sadly that didn’t happen. Here on earth trey will be missed but we can take comfort that he is in heaven with our Lord! Dianne Friesen, June 9, 2021
