Trevor was well known to his friends as (Tiny) in the Community of New Waterford
Cape Breton and would be seen driving in his electric wheelchair to visiting friends, to
attend local social events and the daily tasks such as groceries, banking, etc. Despite
his many setbacks and health issues, Trevor always had a big smile, waved to Passers
by and was genuinely interested to speak to anyone who took the time. Trevor will be
remembered for his overly generous spirit and his large presence. Trevor loved to
tease and help anyone in need. His big heart was overflowing with kindness and his
friendly disposition was known to get him in trouble at times. (He was well known as
someone who would give the shirt off his back) He will be greatly missed by his family,
friends and his dog, Callie his closest companion who is now in the care of Trevor’s
