BENNER, Trevor Gordon

March 11, 1978 – October 11, 2020

It is with broken hearts we say to Trevor, we will see you soon bud.  Your courage, tenacity and strength is an inspiration to all who knew and loved you.

Trevor passed away October 11, 2020 at home surrounded by his family. He leaves his love with his three sons Deklen, Login and Ashton.  His loving wife Kaitlynn, his momma Louise, his dad Keith/Leslie, his brothers Scott/Khanh, Bradly/Claire, his nieces and nephews Sheena, Bastian, Aurora, Kadin, Willow, Braeden and oh His Aunt Linda!!!  All the Benner family, numerous friends, relatives, and brothers.

It is the measure of a soul not what you have done, rather who you have chosen to become.  Trevor chose to be a loving father.  Open heartedly welcoming everyone into his heart and life, his passion was to sit have a Rickard Red and talk hockey to anyone that would listen he loved hockey and the Flames.  An amazing guitarist, a great entertainer.  When he put his mind to something he always found a way to do it.  Never backed down from a challenge.  Always generous with a helping hand.  A willing participant in everything life presented.  Always forgiving never judging, a kind and caring soul.  We will just take you along with us Trevor, always in our hearts. 

A celebration of Trevor’s life will be held at a later date. Details to be shared by the family.

Don’t cry for me, I’m not there
That was yesterday, when you stood beside me
And I listened to you pray
I felt you holding my hand
You knew I had to leave
You know how much I loved you
And I don’t want you to grieve
And I am not going to be so far away
Just beyond where you can see
And Jesus brought me safe this far
And he will care for me
So let me be at peace with him
We have had our cup of joy
And memories are a gift from god that time cannot destroy
So if I have done one little thing to help you on your way
God only promised a life time to live day by day
Because at every rainbow end there is a pot of gold
And that is part of believing the stories we’ve been told
That god went to prepare a place for me and everyone
He said that he would call us when it was time to come
He wiped the tear drops from my eyes and wipes away the pain
And gave me to the angels so I can live again
He promised me a new life that would never end
And that would be the beginning of where the rainbow ends
And my life would be a memory like a ripple in a stream
And I will still be near you if only in your dreams
And god will give you the power to help you understand
And sorrows will fade away like footprints in the sand
Be Happy for me

    My heart hurts for your loss. I know how much you struggled and how strong you and your family have been. There aren’t enough words to explain the pain of losing a child. Just know we are here for you whenever you need to grieve and talk.

    My most sincere condolences to to all the family for one so dear. May God wrap his arms around you and comfort you all. Having lost my only son I share the heartache of it. I wrote a song the day after his passing “The Songbirds are Singing in Heaven. There is no doubt your loved one will join the chorus. He is walking in a garden of beauty.

    Trevor was a great man who has left a wonderful legacy behind. He always tried to live life to the fullest and he has such a wonderful attitude about life! He will be missed always but never forgotten. I am lucky to say that I got to grow up with him and he was a good cousin.
