Trenton "Trent" B. DavisJune 13, 1971 ~ March 22, 2017 (age 45)
Trenton “Trent” B. Davis, our son, brother, father, uncle, grandpa, friend, and ultimate prankster was born on June 13, 1971. He grew up spending his time between his two hometowns of Holladay and Salem Utah, on one adventure after another; escapades with cousins, deer hunting, camping, and riding dirt bikes and motorcycles.
Trenton knew how to have a good time and he always lived life to the fullest. More than anything he loved a good prank. If you spent even a little time around him he would try and pull one on you, and always kept us laughing.
Trenton had a big heart, and he wouldn’t hesitate to give you the shirt off his back. He was always thinking of others and building them up, bringing flowers, sharing his latest finds, and expressing his gratitude. He had the unique ability to connect with any age, and befriend all walks of life, treating them like family.
One of his greatest joys was supporting his children and he loved cheering them on in their different pursuits.
Trenton was a collector of things: motorcycles, cars, and other random treasures he could never part with. He knew how to fix any car problem, and he was talented with woodworking and etching on rocks. He was a John Wayne fan, and owned every one of his movies. He could tie a mean quilt and probably finished over a hundred in his lifetime. He could tell you all about any type of rock, but his greatest love was spending time in Topaz Utah, hunting for geodes. He had a knack for finding the right spot, and bringing back many treasures to share. Most of all he loved taking friends and family with him on these adventures, which usually turned into a crazy adventure all on its own.
Trenton is survived by his mother Bonnie; siblings, Corie Lyn and Chad; children Hillary, Neil, Cheyenne, (TJ, Grace,) and Colton; and grandsons Easton and Kai. He is also survived by loving aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends too numerous to count.
Trenton battled with arthritis the last several years along with the disease of addiction for most of his life, and spent time advocating, so others could learn from his mistakes. Fortunately, his last days were very happy ones after his heart surgery, and provided his loved ones with many treasured memories. After a life full of adventure, he surprised us one last time by passing peacefully in his sleep on March 22, 2017. We rejoice in knowing that he is now at peace in the loving arms of his Savior and enjoying the long-awaited reunion with his father, Neil. The celebration of his life (where we’ll finally try to get the last laugh) will be held at the Holladay 26th Ward Chapel [4601 South Chapel Drive (2565 East), Holladay, Ut] on Wednesday, March 29, at 11:00 a.m. Viewing times will be Tuesday March 28, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and Wednesday March 29, at 10:00 a.m. just prior to the funeral. After the funeral, a graveside service will be held at Salem City Cemetery at approximately 2:00 p.m.
