Trevor was a vibrant young man, and a true adventurer at heart who had a passion for exploring the outdoors. He was an avid hiker, camper, and explorer who enjoyed nothing more than being in nature. He often traveled across the country with his beloved dog, Buddha, in search of new and exciting experiences.

He was known for his friendly and outgoing nature, always eager to make new friends and share his zest for life with others. Despite his struggles, he will be remembered as a kind and loving person who touched the lives of all who knew him.
