1935 ~ 2023
Trevor Northeast passed away early on February 28th at the age of 87. Trev, as he was known to most, was born in 1935, in Tredegar, South Wales. He came to Salt Spring Island in 1982 and married the love of his life, Margaret. He quickly fell into the rhythm of island life and became known to many through his job on the ferries and his commitment to the Legion. Margaret and Trevor spent many happy years together, devoted to family, friends, and their beloved dogs. Margaret’s passing in 2017 was a terrible loss for Trevor, yet he continued to be active in the community and was a regular volunteer at the Legion. According to his wishes, Trev lived at home as long as it was possible (and even a little longer). He did this with the support of Dr. Reznick, Island Health and his incredible friends. Trevor is survived by his step-son, David Marsh and his wife Debbie, his step-daughter, Ceri and her husband Ben Rahn, and his grandchildren, Dylan and Gareth Marsh, and Esme and Julian Rahn. A celebration of life will be held at the Legion on May 13th from 3 to 5 p.m.
RIP Trevor. I was one of the annoying people from BCF who called him day and night to come to work for all the years Trevor worked. Loads of laughs he had a terrific sense of humour, unless he was seasick. It was sad to say but he had us laughing again. He brightened our day with his presence. Trev will be well remembered by many who were lucky to work with him.

A belated and sad farewell to Trevor. His early life in Tredegar established his good humour and good companionship.
Will always be remembered, David and Jennifer Cole.
