Trey worked for the Mueller Company and traveled around talking with officials in big and small cities on upgrading fire hydrants in their towns. He was their #1 Salesman many times. He could identify any fire hydrant and knew how old they were. He knew that old fire hydrants could leak water costing the city money or that the hydrant might have “frozen” caps that would prohibit firemen from hooking up their hoses to fight fires. Trey was an avid history buff ,enjoyed sports, especially Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Republican Party. He always looked forward to his bingo calling for the American Legion Hall every Sunday along with his snacks the ladies would provide for him to take home later. Trey died surrounded by love and held by his daughter till his last breath. Trey will be missed by his loving family and host of friends. Nebraska’s #1 fan will be greatly missed GO BIG RED!

    Trey spent nearly 2 months at the Rebecca A Morrison House during his treatments at the Tammy Walker Cancer Center. I personally got to know Trey and appreciate his simplicity of life. When he arrived he only had a small box of his belongings. Including a 2 liter bottle of soda pop! Although I did not know Trey’s background and history, I soon realized this simple man had an enriched history of life and was very respected by his colleagues. It has been nearly 3 years now since his passing, but it’s often times that he comes to my memory. Especially today, when I was preparing for our upcoming 25th celebration here at the Rebecca A Morrison House this fall. Our guests like Trey who spend as much time at the house become our extended family and friends whom we keep in our thoughts and prayers daily.
