OBITUARY

Trevor Ardis

November 4, 1987March 26, 2021

Trevor DeMierre Ardis, age 33, passed away on March 26, 2021 in Aurora, Colorado. He is survived by his son Mason Ardis, mother Linda Ardis, Father Mike Ardis, sister Kelly Delahanty and family (brother in law Dan, nieces Ava and Emma, and nephew Liam). Trevor was loved by all and known for his infectious laugh. Although he is gone, he is not forgotten, and forever loved by all of his family and friends. His celebration of life will be held on Saturday, April 10th at 11:00 am at Dove Valley Park. Please dress casual or wear Broncos or nuggets attire as this is who Trevor was and what he would have wanted. Trevor wouldn’t want this day to be spent in sadness, so we will spend this time celebrating Trevor by sharing stories that we hope will make everyone laugh.

So many people have been asking our family what they can do, or if they can send flowers. Right now our main focus is making sure Mason is taken care of. We’re requesting people to please donate to Mason’s future education.

We worked together at Sams Club 14 years ago and at the same time my future husband was tattooing you. I loved watching you walk in work with that infectious smile, it made my day better. I would make it a point to walk by the meat department so I could say hi and make sure we were meeting after work to talk. I’m so glad you have been in my life for so long. You will be missed.

This seems so unreal to me. You have been a constant in my life for the last 17 years and the thought of you not being here anymore is unbearable. We met as children the purest first love anyone could experience. Even though life brought us so many different directions and paths we always found a way back with a friendly hello and a catch up, reminding each other of where it started.

You followed me around the school begging me to ditch and go to Burger King breakfast where you would eat all around the bun and save the middle for last, you said you always saved the best for last. You were quirky and proud. You were stubborn but lovable. You were strong but so sweet. You loved to reminisce and talk about the old days even if they were sad, you were happy because it made you you.
I can’t listen to any song without thinking of you.

From rap to the Kiss posters that lined your childhood bedroom you felt such a deep connection to music that you felt it on another level, every lyric resonated with you and it made you feel closer to people. You would beg me to listen to different songs, tell me to “REALLY” listen to every word and that’s how you would explain your feelings. Well Trevor I’m listening and I understand, and I miss you.

Trevor,
I know everyone probably remembers me as Ashley’s younger but taller brother. That’s how I met you for the first time. You allowed me to tag along with my sis to come over to your parties. You treated me as a friend the first time I met you. You didn’t care that I was younger, you treated me as an adult and let me make my own choices. One of the memories I’ll never forget is how you decided the boys should sit down and play cards since most of the people were gone or sleeping after one of the parties. You let me join in and it was someone’s idea to slap each other on the thigh with a wire instead of betting money. It was nice being one of the guys. That was the first and last night I ever tried chewing tobacco. You gave me a dip and within 10 mins I was puking my brains out. We woke up the next morning and my sister found out and was so mad at you! We laughed about it for so long. I always looked up to you. You were the older brother I never had. I remember thinking how funny you were and how contagious your high pitch laugh was. We had so many good times after that house! Going to bars and having bbq at your new house. We lost touch over the years but I will always be thankful for the times I got to hang out with you. The last day I saw you we came over for a Broncos game. It was the first time I was meeting Mason. You were such a great dad and I thought Mason was the coolest little kid. You’ve made so many good memories for so many people. You will never be forgotten! Rest easy Trevor, I’ll be seeing you again. I have this pic I took of Mason and I the last time I saw you. He looks so much like you! I’ll miss you Trev!

Mason, your father was an amazing man.

Trevor fit more into his 33 years of life than most people do in a lifetime.

He was an instant friend who could make friends with anyone in all walks of life, he never passed any judgment. He was selfless and could always recognize when anyone needed a hand to help.

Trevor was bright, in every sense of the word. He was smart and mathematical and could solve any problem off the top of his head. He was also bright in a way that when he walked in a room you knew it. It was intense and vivid. Impossible to miss, no situation went without a witty remark or a giggle of laughter. He excelled at making everyone happy and feeling comfortable. He was a jack of all trades.

He truly devoted his life to you Mason. He did all he could to make sure you had a step ahead. He loved you more than anything and we all will always be here to remind you of that.

“We wouldn’t grieve so heavily for someone we didn't truly love. Grief reminds us of how fortunate we are to have had a love so deep that when it's gone, we hurt. It's a lesson in gratitude”

We were young and we were dumb but we loved each other deeply.

Everyone was thrilled when we broke up because of the disaster we caused together. No matter how we ended, I'll carry the memories we share for the rest of my life.

I remember when we went camping and we only brought a Rush CD... to this day when I hear Rush it takes me back to your big green truck, the smell of the black ice air freshener and cooking steaks on rocks.

We got the same birds tattooed because we didn’t want to jinx our relationship by getting each others names.

I remember when I was starting to feel sick so you were going to drive me to your moms house so she could give me some medicine. When I opened up the truck door a man popped out and pushed me to the ground. You chased him till another car pulled up and he jumped in...lol my sickness stopped your truck from being stolen.

We would exchange music for hours, back and forth with the aux introducing new bands and artists to one another... I’ll never forget how many times you played Katy Perrys “California girls.”

You would always say to me “I’m an all American man Bethanie, this is just who I am.”

Every concert we went to you would drop an average of like 3 beers.

Your first apartment we would stay up all night playing guitar hero and eating cheese.

From sleep walking and peeing in my purse, teaching me how to fish (we caught 22 my first time), clipping coupons, driving to a farm and getting Lola, your paper towel love letters, ugh the ducks, picking out Cooper... we got him because he had the same birthday as you...

You were a huge part of my life and I’m so sad that you had to go so soon.

I will always love you Trevor.
If our souls meet again, let’s not put each other through hell next time, k?

This breaks my heart. We just talked last month. I messaged you out of the blue checking in on you. And you asked why? I told you I had a dream to check in on you. You were so happy in your life. I congratulated you on your new home you were building and how exciting it was Kelly would be next door to you. We talked about our children. You agreed with me when I told you Mason looks just like you! (Which everyone knows.) You praised me on being a great mother and wife. You congratulated me when I told you my anniversary was coming up. We talked about our careers and our future plans we had. Like old friends do. It’s been 12 years since I have talked to you or seen you. I can still hear your contagious laugh in my head. It is laughter that no one can forget. You were a great guy Trev and so much fun to be around. Godspeed friend!

2 Corinthians 5:1: For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.

Trevor, you and I had lost touch over the past two years but we kept, somehow, bumping into each other. Which is how our friendship sometimes was...we would get caught up in our own lives but somehow would make it back and start right back up like we hadn’t even blinked an eye. I thought that’s how this time was going to end up, also💔😢....you were always one of my best friends and always had a special place in my heart. The countless shenanigans we were involved in together, your house parties, Stampede, McCarthys, The Rock, Bakers St., the list goes on and on. You always had me laughing regardless of what we did when we hung out. I will remember you most by your laugh, how genuine you were, and how much you loved Mason. I just keep wishing this is a terrible nightmare and that I will wake up to your laugh as I’m yelling at you, “Trevor!!!”, which happened many time's 😂. And of course I couldn’t stay mad. I want Mason to know how much his daddy loved him, I could see as I was his teacher for a short time, how much you taught him, he’s so smart because of you, Trev. I send prayers, love, and thoughts of comfort to your family and all lives touched by this special person. Cheers to you my friend, rest easy, and this isn’t goodbye but rather I will see you later. Rest In Paradise. I will always love you my dear Friend. 💗🙏🏻💗

Maya Angelou said, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” I grew up with Trevor but we didn’t run in the same crowd. I don’t remember seeing him around school much, but I know he was there. We only had class together in third grade and Trevor always stood in front of me in line (since we always had to go to specials in alphabetical order. My maiden name was Baumgartner). Trevor was the kid who always had a smile on his face, and never had an unkind thing to say about anyone. The thing I will remember most about him was his happiness and how you just couldn’t help but feel happy around him. He once gave a presentation (we did a lot of those in third grade) and I remember he and the kid he worked with (I think it was Mike Dunston) got a case of the giggles something awful. They hardly made it through their presentation and had the whole class rolling right along with them. Thanks for always being kind and spreading your happiness wherever you went. You will be deeply missed.
