Trevor Smith, 27, of Andalusia, Alabama, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, Dec. 17, 2017. He was killed by a drunk driver, driving on the wrong side of the highway on his way to work Sunday morning.

Trevor was born July 10, 1990 in Santa Barbara, California. In Trevor’s early years living in Goleta, California, he was a beach bum baby who loved to feed the seagulls, play in the sand and wade in the ocean. His favorite thing to do was sit in the rocking chair with Nana, Dapa or Momma and read books until he fell asleep.

He was always a happy boy with contagious laughter and a smile on his face. Even as a toddler, Trevor would clap his hands and raise his arms toward heaven during praise and worship.

Growing older, Trevor was raised in a Christian military family who spent the majority of service in the beautiful state of Colorado. He loved his brothers and sisters in Christ at New Life Church, specifically the young adult ministry, which was instrumental in the hope that Trevor found in Christ Jesus again.

He was an avid Denver Broncos and Colorado Rockies fan. He graduated as an MA and was working toward his RN. At 6-foot 4-inches tall, he was a gentle giant who grew into a wonderful, godly young man who never met a stranger and showed kindness to everyone. He loved all of his family dearly, but even more so, knew his hope was in Christ Jesus, forgiver of all. He will be greatly missed this side of heaven! You are, and always will be, greatly loved, son!

Trevor is preceded in death by his grandfather, Randy Smith.

Trevor is survived by his wife Betsy Smith, parents Kristina Goode and David Goode, his fathers John Smith and Randy Cole, brother James Dixon, grandparents Dan Green and Diane Green, grandmother Linda Smith, uncles Mike Smith and Mark Smith, aunt Jenny Padilla and cousins Tim Smith, Chellie Jenkins and Ashley Hutchison.

Trevor’s celebration of life ceremony will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 6 at Brookings Church of the Nazarene, 1600 Chetco Ave., Brookings, Oregon. All are welcome to attend. After the service, please join our family for a potluck to follow at the church.
