Trever Alan Williams, 17, of Wabash, Indiana, died at 12:04 p.m. Sunday, April 24, 2011 at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne. He was born March 4, 1994 in Wabash to Michael D. Williams, Sr. and Mary M. (Maynard) Williams.
Trever was a junior at Wabash High School. He was a member of the National Honor Society and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He was a 3-year member of the Wabash High School Wrestling Team with a career record of 78-20. He also was a member of Central Indiana Academy of Wrestling. Trever earned a sectional championship, and was a three-time qualifier for the regionals and semi-state. He also wrestled overseas in Holland. Trever’s life was wrestling, 4-wheeling, fishing, dancing, and spending time with his friends. After graduation he planned to attend Ohio State University.
He is survived by his father, Michael D. Williams Sr.; mother, Mary M. Williams; brother, Michael D. Williams, Jr.; and sister, Terissa L. Williams, all of Wabash; two grandmothers, Bernice Pickering of Wabash, and Robecca Maynard of Marion, Indiana; and his great-grandfather, Burley Napier of Wabash. He was preceded in death by his grandfathers, William Maynard, and Ellis Pickering.
Funeral services will be held at Wabash Middle School Auditorium, 150 W. Colerain Street, Wabash, on Friday, April 29, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. with Terry Brewer, Pat Powers, and Jake O’Neal officiating. Burial will be in Friends Cemetery, Wabash. Friends may call 2-8 p.m. Thursday at Grandstaff-Hentgen Funeral Service, 1241 Manchester Avenue, Wabash.
” Wabash High School, Wabash County and the wrestling community lost a warrior Sunday. While I personally did not know Trever, I covered many Wabash wrestling meets and it became very obvious Trever was the heart and soul of Wabash High School wrestling. With a strong determination to work hard and compete at his highest level, his enthusiasm rubbed off on not only his team mates, but opposing wrestlers as well. Trever’s passing puts things in perspective and has touched many people’s lives without them realizing it.”
