May 1, 1955 – August 23, 2013
Tommy Trevors passed away in Calgary, AB on August 23, 2013 after confronting cancer. He was 58 years old. True to his greatest skill and favorite pastime as a carpenter, Tommy left his mark on the world. He married his high school sweetheart Lorna in 1975, starting a 38 year partnership that would result in three children; Brent (Fran), Jeff and Kelsey (Andrew) and three grandchildren; Jake, Luc and Zack. After raising their children in their hometown of Miramichi, New Brunswick, Tommy and Lorna followed them to Calgary and embraced their role as grandparents to the fullest. Tommy’s grandsons could always count on their Pappy to be in the stands while they played hockey and lacrosse, and the checkerboard was never idle while he was around. Even as Tommy’s body began to strain, he never lost his determination or his Maritime charm. Friends from earlier days were entertained by a familiar sense of humour, and family members were eased by Tommy’s unwavering ability to deliver when it mattered most. Less than one week ago, Tommy gave his only daughter away in marriage. A man you could set your watch to, Tommy left this world the same way he always left the room- quietly after the work was done.
