I'll always remember Trey for his love of life and nature. We shared many great conversations about nature, he always shared with great enthusiasm about plant medicine and his adventures. He was very proud that his mother Suzanne referred to him as Crocodile Dundee, that really made his day. In ways he reminded me of Steve Erwin with his compassion with nature and all that is apart of. My greatest memory, he stopped by and I noticed he had a sling... he told me he was mothering?? He pulled out 2 orphaned baby squirrels. He was the most perfect person for the job. Trey was the most kindest and compassionate young man I've ever met. I'll always treasure our friendship and the conversations we had. Rest in peace my soul brother.💖

I’ve known Trey since I was a little girl because we met when his beautiful wonderful mother owned her daycare close to memorial hospital.. Then time passed by and off and on I would run into him over the years but the last time would be spending more time with him like he was my little brother we spent time in the woods and he showed me wonderful things and opened my eyes up to another world!!! I love you Trey I’m gonna miss you so much🥰🥰😔😔🌹🌹🌹

With sadness I celebrate the transition of a beautiful soul to the spiritual realm. It's obvious Trey was a free spirit and a highly intelligent young man that loved nature and all it's inhabitants. He seemed to know a little bit about everything. Once he gave me a wad of wild herbs he had picked in the woods. He educated me on the many health benefits of herbs that grow in the wild.
A couple of summers ago he helped me clean my garage. I wanted to declutter and trash everything until he informed me just how much my junk was worth. He literally turned my junk to treasures. I have yet to have my garage sale but when I do I am sure I will be smiling to the heavens and thanking Trey for all the precious knowledge he shared with me over the years.
I will always remember that beautiful smile and those dancing blue eyes.
I will miss you Trey but I will see you in the blink of and eye.
Love, Auntie La Wanna

We are so sorry to hear of Trey's passing. He was very kind, the strongest man we ever knew, loved God's creations, and was always willing to help. He went to work with me in construction many times. He would sometimes turn up missing and then show up with a poisonous snake (sometimes not poisonous). He would have the whole job site upset. :) I told him "put that snake down son, before you get bit." And he said that it was just a copperhead and that he had been bit so many times he was immune. (Later we laughed about that together.) He was a special character that I will miss. Our whole family will miss him, and can't wait to see him in the resurrection in a Paradise earth happy and in perfect health.

Although I didn't know Trey well in recent years, he and I were best buddies as kids. We spent a lot of time at each others' houses and we were in Cub Scouts together. I would see Trey around town once in awhile and we would catch up and talk awhile. I know a few things for sure about Trey. He was bright, witty, friendly, and could do anything he wanted to. He will be missed, and if you knew him, you liked/loved him.

Rest in peace, Trey
