Let me preface by saying this tribute and memorial are LONG over-due.
Please read through this topic, pay your individual respects, and reminiscence about Trev.
While I do not remember the specific circumstances of Trevor's departure before his re-app in early 2012 (basically 2011), I can confidently say that once he was back, he proved all of his doubters wrong and fully dedicated himself to bettering both our community and our clan. He quickly rose through the ranks and achieved the title of events team, a notoriously strenuous rank that he performed exceptionally without ever complaining. There is not a doubt in my mind that if the grim reaper had not been looming over his head and TLP's, he would have achieved the rank of High-Council and been a key player in our success moving forward.
Only The Good Die Young
Articles on the fire:
-Anyone that you ask will tell you that Trev had a contagious happiness about him that rubbed off onto anyone who came into contact with him. I do not recall ever seeing him angry/upset.
-He was a rare-breed; the kind of guy that is one in a thousand. He was an invaluable asset to TLP and a great person
-He was content with his life and at his happiest when he was shooting the shit with his buds online.
-He was a big part of the core that held together our friendly community.
-He was a big dick stud and part of the ever reliable "unit" that we relied on to carry us through tough minis and challenging preps.
-He could always be found on team-speak and he always had a warming presence about him.
-Please see other people's memories below.
Looking back on Trevor's life, we can all learn a lot from him despite only having the great honor and privilege of knowing him for 2~ years.
-Learn to smile and let go of your anger; it simply isn't worth it.
-"Life appears to me to short to be spent in nursing animosity and registering wrongs"- we do not know if there will be a tomorrow, therefore, we should strive to always be on good terms with everyone in our lives from our family to the people we #rek online.
-Do your best to keep in touch with close friends/clanmates you meet online. Idk about you guys, but I think of Trev and all of you that I've had the chance to spend a substantial amount of time with as close friends and I hope that we are able to stay in touch for the rest of our lives...well...at least until y'all start having kids like me. Seriously though faggots, keep in touch and hopefully we can have some irl meetups as the years go on, we owe it to Trev and ourselves!
We will never forget you, friend. We are eternally grateful for all of the memories and the laughs that you provided over the years, we will all cherish them forever. Rest easy Rumsaw...
