As a family we had the honor, privilege and blessing of knowing Trent as a Son, Daddy, Papa, wise counselor and someone you can always trust and go to for guidance. If you were fortunate enough to get to know him, you know what a loving, giving, selfless, devoted, dedicated, thoughtful and hard working man, whose love was expressed in many kind ways to countless souls. He has taught us great wisdom, kindness, diligence and integrity and he was always investing in people. Jesus says in Matthew 22:37, “Love The Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment and the second is like it; Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Trent responded to Jesus’ command. Our entire lives we have watched him show God’s love to countless people, irregardless of who they were or what they had to offer in return.
