Trenton “Trent” X. Ballenger, age 22, of Douglasville, Georgia, left this world to join God on Thursday, September 10, 2020. A Georgia native, Trent was born April 11, 1998 in Atlanta, Georgia to Evie Kilgore and Leon Ballenger. Trent was a graduate of Alexander High School. He played baseball and basketball as a child, continuing well into his teen years. He was the example of “good sportsmanship”, always wanting to be inclusive of everyone. Trent found joy in spending time with others, jumping in to help others at the drop of a hat, and was a very loving and selfless young man. He was always smiling but wore his heart on his sleeve. The ultimate lover of fast cars, Trent enjoyed working on cars and helping others with their automotive issues. He was an avid fan of the Atlanta Falcons, just like his mom, and Oklahoma Sooners football. In his spare time he enjoyed baseball, fishing, going to the beach or anywhere his friends were. He was a member of Central Baptist Church. We will always remember Trenton as someone who loved to have a good time and make those around him laugh. He was a loving and caring friend, brother and son. He will continue to live on in the hearts and memories of all whose lives he has touched. We were not ready for him to go but we know God has a plan and now we have a guardian angel to always watch over us.

He was preceded in death by his aunt, Erica Kilgore, and his grandfather, James Ballenger.

He is survived by his parents, Evie Kilgore and Marcus Leon Ballenger; sister, Tristyn Ballenger, and half-siblings, LaDallis Ballenger, Demarcus Ballenger, Demarion Ballenger and Destiny Ballenger and countless other family members.

The family invites everyone to "come as you are" and dress in your favorite Atlanta Falcon attire (red & black) to help celebrate Trent's life. They will receive friends at Central Baptist Church, 5811 Central Church Road, Douglasville, GA, on Saturday, September 19, 2020 from 1:00 PM until 2:00 PM. A Celebration of Life will follow at 2:00 PM in the Worship Center of Central Baptist Church with Reverend Cameron Wilkins officiating. Following the service, a reception will be held in the church family center.

Trenton - You could always bring a smile to my face even when I tried hard to be serious. Your smile would light up a room and we had so many great times at Children’s World!! Rest in heavenly peace my son until we meet again.

Trent was a brother to me since the day I met him. No matter what he was going through, he always tended to others. When I was going through a rough living situation, he would pick me up off the side of the road every morning and take me to school. He was never late and always came through, that’s just who he was. I love you brother, I know you’re smiling up there.

It didn’t matter if you were a stranger, Trent would make a point to make you a friend. There were no strangers to Trent. He made everyone feel welcome and safe to speak to him. His soul was one of a kind. He felt things differently and so strongly. Music was one of the ways he showed how he was feeling. Even if I was in a bad mood, Trent would always notice and make a point to make me feel better. I’m so lucky to have gotten to know him and be a small part of his life. Our trip to Florida this summer was one of a kind and he always kept us safe. Trent was so protective of his friends he’d notice if someone was even looking at us funny. I’m so grateful to have been able to share those memories with him this summer. I’ve never seen him be mean to anybody with out it being a joke. He didn’t have a bully bone in his body. I know we all “joaned” on each other but it was our way of showing love. Trent would never want to hurt anybody’s feelings. I’ve never met a soul like Trents but I can’t express how blessed I was to have experienced his. Trent, you’ve made such an impact on this community and I hope you know that. I wish we could’ve made more memories but I’ll never forget the ones we have. I love you and I hope your soul forever rests in peace. #LLTB

Trent was a great friend to all of us. He always knew how to make us smile. Trent made his own imprint on us even before his passing and now an even bigger one. His soul was always full of light even on his bad days. His vessel may not be with us anymore but his spirit is all around. He’s still around us to listen when we want to talk and he’s always gonna watch over and protect the ones he loves. It’s going to be weird not seeing him with “the group” but his legacy will always live on. My condolences to his friends and especially his family. Xoxo
