Obituary

Trent King Jan.1/61 to April 1, 2021

Dave and Lois asked me if I would say a few words on behalf of the family about Trent and of course I agreed. As difficult as this is, it’s much easier knowing each and every one of you knew Trent very well and all have your own unique memories and thoughts of him. My sharing will be, I hope, several snapshots that let you see him as I did which I’m hopeful won’t be far off your thoughts and bring more smiles than tears. Please forgive me for the randomness of my comments but like Trent, life just happens and you get on with it.

He was born on Jan.1, 1961 to Gordon and Myrna King. A New Years Baby!
Kevin Trent King, a nicer, kinder man you will never find.
Who knew Trent’s real first name was Kevin? I didn’t until this past week. It just came to me as I was putting my thoughts to paper that the older King boys always went by their middle names. Kevin and Sterling, think about it.

A quiet thoughtful boy who grew up to be a caring and conscientious man. When I say caring I mean that sincerely and literally. In his Nanna’s last year’s Trent looked after her. When his Dad was fighting cancer Trent moved to Nipawin to care for him and in the special relationship that he and his younger brother Kelly had, Trent looked after him as best he could. This doesn’t begin to capture the love and caring he always had for his niece Tanis and her kids Alex, Hunter and Cloe. He never forgot birthdays or special occasions. Trent didn’t have much but what he had was always available to his family or friends.

His relationship with his oldest brother Dave was epic. They loved each other dearly and I was able to experience it firsthand but they did have their moments. Any of you that know me realize I have a problem turning down a free meal so I was able to share many suppers with them both. Dave always wanted the best for Trent and tried to help Trent attain these goals. He always had very good sound advice for Trent and was very persistent whether it was how to manage finances or whether he should get a haircut. Dave never really did figure out that his standards weren’t quite Trent’s. I remember one Christmas Eve where Trent was very calmly listening to Dave. Dave was getting a bit frustrated and getting a little louder and of course Trent wasn’t reacting the way Dave expected. Dave stopped for a breath and Trent took the time to look at me and with a little grin, he kind of rolled his eyes and nodded his head then turned back to Dave in all seriousness. It was all I could do to not break down.

Just a side note on the haircut thing. I’m not sure there wasn’t a little bit of jealousy on Dave’s part with regards to Trent getting a haircut. If you know what I mean.

When Nanna passed, she left her home to Trent and Kelly. I’m sure she had no idea the conversion that stately old house was going to undergo. Metallica, Guns and Roses and Motley Crue were all fairly new to the previous Talbot household. Dave and I had stopped over for a quick visit shortly after the takeover. Trent and Kelly were having a beer in the living room with the Bose 901’s cranked and Kelly commenting about the great acoustics the 10 ft ceilings and plaster walls provided and Trent just smiling enjoying it all. Those were good days.

Trent had another family that bears mentioning and that was his Wal-Mart friends. They must have been very special because virtually every day he would go hours early and I’m sure it wasn’t just to prepare for his shift. I wasn’t familiar with all his colleagues but one whom always got mentioned was Misty. She was unbelievably kind to Trent and I think Dave portrayed her as Trent’s second mom. For that Dave will always thank you.
Trent always enjoyed a Habs or a Blue Bomber game and if Roy or one of his other friends were around even better. I know Melvy would come over quite often and help with some chores while he was visiting which Trent really appreciated. He took immense pleasure with his cats Cuddles and Jasmine and was heartbroken when Jasmine didn’t come home one evening.

I think another of Trent’s biggest regrets was not being able to be at his brother and Lois’s wedding. I know both Dave and Lois were just as disappointed. Trent fell ill and needed to be rushed to Winnipeg and Tanis was by his side the whole time. It speaks to their relationship and their family.

The last years were not kind to Trent. After losing his leg and going through all the physical pains and struggles he had to endure, he was tired. Dave was checking on him often and encouraging him to get help but you got the sense that he had come to a crossroads and knew which fork he was going to take.
At Christmas time, my mom would always make sure that a plate of supper from the Lutheran Church always got to Trent and she always dropped off a few dainties over the holidays and had a short visit. When I told my mom of his passing, there were some immediate tears but I wanted to share her words with you all today.
She said “ I don’t know what is about that boy but I always liked him”
He, in his own way, touched us all

I’m sure Trent didn’t realize how much he is going to be missed
In my mind he has joined Gordo, Myrna and the Kelster with Jasmine rubbing herself on both his legs

All your walmart buddies will never forget you! My fave memory of Trent was when he finally cut his hair-it was so much fun to tell him he actually looked younger and more handsome because he would say, "Well i shoulda cut it years ago then." My condolences to Trents family, including Dave, that nice husband of our former secretary Lois(miss ya!), the lovely Lois & Tanis, my figure skating buddy(we miss grama Fran too). I had an uncle who was so similar to Trent, but mine was kind of a jerk. I can only imagine how kind Trent was to everyone, but he must have been a fun uncle! Thanks for being in our lives, Trent!
