ADAMS, Trevor Donald

  May 24, 1971 -  April 6, 2015

It is with much sadness that we share the news of the death of our beloved son Trevor. He died with his family by his side at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre on April 6, 2015. Trevor will be dearly remembered by his parents, Don & Linda,  his wife Althea and sons Gregory and Coulbourn (Coulby), his brother Scott and his wife Jan and their children, Emily, Frannie and Rowan, his twin brother Brett and his wife Terra and their children Amy, Jack and Sam. He was predeceased by his infant brother Gregory (1974) and his sister Sandra (2010). Trevor grew up in the Munson Community and attended Morrin School before going on to earn a degree in Business at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. He touched the lives of many with his keen sense of humor, even as he fought leukemia over the last 14 months. His brave battle touched and inspired us all. His competitive nature was evident in whatever he did, be it sports, board games or family fun. Golf was his passion and he encouraged his little boys to follow in his footsteps. Trevor will be missed so very much. A celebration of Trevor’s life was held April 10 in Calgary, Alberta. One of Trevor’s final wishes for all of us was  “Always Look at the Bright Side of Life”.
