I am going to miss you. I met Tom and his brother David through his sister Teresa. Tom was the big brother to Teresa and David. I also had the pleasure of knowing his parents the late Cliff and Donna Trent. They were happy to talk about all of their children. Cliff told me about Tom and his football days because he knew I played football too. He also told me how proud of Tom he was with his family and his job. I also had the pleasure of meeting Tom's son Travis and his daughter Natalye. Tom was a great family man, friend and respected member of the community. Rest in Peace Tom.

Rest in peace brother. Many memories going back to Colonial high, having our lockers across from each other in football your senior year, to Kmart and parking lot parties, spring break (Oh the memories), UCF football, bachelor parties, weddings, get together/cookouts, tailgating at the CitrusBowl, kids and youth sports as kids got older, tailgating at UCF, but less frequently, the sorrows we have felt, discussed through texts and on the phone, will be missed my friend, as you are already. Godspeed.

I am still so stunned by the news of Tommy Trents passing! How can such a light be gone from this world! Through the years his name has come up many times in the stories of my school years. He was a very big part and he will be missed and was loved by so many.
I have so many memories. We were in classes together since 1st grade. I have a memory from elementary school when we were in a talent show together. It was a group of us doing a skit and well it went less than perfect, really a disaster. Well of course with Tommy he made it a comedy act and everyone just laughed and laughed! He just always seemed to be great at everything!!! I love that I have a smile when I remember those years.
I am sorry to his family and can’t imagine what you are going through. I will continue to keep you in my prayer!!!
Tommy Thank you for being a friend to us!! You will be missed!!!

My heart aches for Tom's family and friends. As many have said, Tom did always have that huge grin we all remember from childhood. Especially when he was lovin on KISS. I am so grateful I got to see his smile as we reconnected a bit over the years. I will always cherish those moments.

One of my fondest memories is when Tom and I were in chemistry class together in high school. He sat in front of me. Every time the chemistry teacher would call on me to answer a question, Tom would turn around as if he was listening. But instead he would don that beautiful, big smile, open his eyes as wide as he could and slightly nod his head as if in agreement. His motive was to get me to start laughing. It was enough to keep from laughing. The instructor eventually caught on, and called him on it. Good times!
Tom was always cutting up like that, always making people laugh. He was a very sweet soul.
My deepest condolences go out to his family. My heart truly breaks for you. He will be missed by so many. But I know he is now sharing stories and laughing with Jesus.

I cannot believe you are gone my brother. Hardly a day has gone by in the past 35 years, I do not think of the great times at work, parties and UCF football games we all spent together. We were all great friends back then and will always be friends forever. You will be missed and never forgotten.

I’m so sorry to hear the news of Tom’s passing. Tom was a great friend in school and teammate our first year in baseball. We lost touch along the way which sometimes happens though I thought the world of him. Tom’s family is in my thoughts and prayers.
