I worked with Trey at Superior Chevrolet, and Ginn Motor Co.
Trey was an invaluable help, and great friend. I am so sad to hear of his passing.

I know that if there is a Service Department in Heaven, Trey will be running it.

Trey was a wonderful person, a loving husband, a great father who adored his three sons and was a loving stepfather to Barbara’s three children. It was a beautiful combined family. He was always ready to help his friends out in any way. What beautiful and fun memories we will always hold dear to our hearts. Trey was taken from us way too soon. What a terrible loss.

Trey and I worked 7 years together at Superior Chevrolet. We often ate lunch together and enjoyed each other's company. We exchanged many life stories and experiences. He was a passionate family man, a dedicated Service Manager and a dear friend. I will truly miss him but will always cherish our time spent together.

I know it's been a while since I saw you, The last time we spoke was after your Dad passed.
I will miss being able to message you whenever I needed to know something.
To the family...Randy, you know when we were all young Trey was the brother I never had. We lost touch when I moved to Cherokee County. I stayed in contact with Delores & Gerald. I always wanted to get together but it never seemed to happen.
Now it's too late. We all need to stop saying one day...I have my memories.
