  4. Trevor was a beautiful man who always looked on the bright side of life. Working with him at Flemington was always fun, listening to stories about his grandkids and all about his travels with Maree. Trevor was a true gentleman and was taken much too soon. I will really miss him. RIP Trevor, can’t believe you’re actually gone. xx

  12. I spent a short time working with Trevor at Bunnings, i will never forget the day we were unpacking wet cardboard out of terracotta pots when a huge black rat appeared.
    Once we stopped screaming and put gloves on. We were hard back at it when Trevor comes running out of the aisle with a leaf rake raised above his head screaming LOOK OUT, we all screamed again, as he slammed the rake to the ground, like he hard caught something.. he says did you see it??? It was a huge black dog ???????????? always a character, my condolences Hayley and family, thinking of you all, at this sad time Xx

  22. Loved working with Trevor at Flemington. Such a gentleman, always happy with a big smile on his face. (Except when Carlton lost) Then met Maree and was so lucky to have both of them babysit my 2 big dogs while we went on holidays. Such a sad time. Will miss him heaps. Condolences to you Maree and your girls and family.

Like the time Trev nearlt burnt his and our house down :))) and the very interesting colour palette he chose for the shed.

Much love and thoughts from our family to yours. The McGlynns (next door neighbours and friends – Ascot Vale)

  28. Trevor,
    All too brief having known you, but brief as it was I really enjoyed your company. Having heard conversations where you were the subject of really positive chat about the tremendous support you and Maree have given Hayley, Brooke and of course Jamie, Macy and Fletch tells me what a great bloke you were as is the number of tributes to you here an awesome testament to you. Although you will no doubt be sorely missed, I’m sure everyone would agree, a life well lived. Congratulations Trevor!

    I was taught by Trevor at Westbreen PS in 1969, and he inspired me to pursue a 40 year career as teacher and principal.
    Best wishes and kind thoughts from me, and all the Westbreen students who remember him as a great teacher and a good bloke.
    I am sure he will be fondly and greatly missed.
    Thanks, Mr. Salter!

  51. Dearest Maree and the family.

    We are saddened by the loss of your wonderful devoted husband.

    We know that he was a vibrant dynamic character enjoying life to the full but also had a gentle and quietness about him. He loved his cricket, footy – following Carlton and playing the game. He was quick to make or return a quip or make you smile and in helping and assisting others.

    We will remember him as a lively gentleman and yet a quietly spoken man.

    I know that you will miss him and we just pray for the comfort and peace of God Our Heavenly Father to be with you at this time.

    We love you and just want to give you a big, big hug at this time.

    With love from us all,
    James and Adriana.

    I am very sad to hear of Trevor’s passing. One of the best! Such a wicked sense of humour that made teaching alongside him at Bourchier St such a joy! Was never quite sure what he might do next but it always ended with a good laugh! A lovely man gone too soon!

    I am very sad to hear of Trevor,s passing. Trevor was my Grade 6 Teacher in 1966 at Lakeside Primary School in Reservoir. I can still remember that he played A Grade Amateur Football with Coburg Amateurs and he also represented Victoria. Trevor was a great Teacher. May he rest in peace.
