A memorial service on October 04, 2018, on the boat, the Ohana (Hawaiian for family), was attended by many family and friends in Hawaii, to Pohoiki Bay, in remembrance and honor of Trevor and his favorite waters of the island.


A family memorial gathering will be held this July at his grandfather’s, Dr. Donald E. Edgar, grave site in Roseville, California. Expressions of sympathy may take the form of contributions for Trevor’s loved ones
