Trevor Martin Dahl passed away peacefully May 28th at Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver. His parents, siblings, niece, nephew and girlfriend Julia were at his side.

Trevor was born November 12 , 1966 at G.R. Baker Hospital.

He attended Lebordias, Pinecrest and QSS schools.

After finishing school Trevor went to Vancouver but returned to Quesnel 2 months later realizing the city wasn’t for him.

Trevor started at Weldwood Plywood plant in 1986 and was employed there at the time of his passing.

Trevor had an ongoing struggle with alcohol and in January 2012 he knew his life had to change. He entered a treatment center for 3 months and never looked back.

He returned to Quesnel at the end of April, joined AA and started counselling sessions. AA welcomed him and became a new family. Always there to help him and encourage him Trevor became active with the group and began to help others.

Trevor was never involved with technology and that was another change he embraced getting a computer, cell phone and joining Facebook where he posted numerous pictures.

Trevor was a dedicated Raiders Football Fan. From a young age through his

Uncle Tim and joined Raiders Nation on Facebook and became president of

the BC Chapter.

A big moment in Trevor’s life was getting his drivers license back and

purchasing a new car.

He began exploring the country side always with his camera ready.

In 2015 Trevor met Julia and began another chapter in his new life.

Trevor lived his life the way he wanted not caring about material things instead about kindness and spending time with the people in his life. Photos were important to him and anything given to him was proudly displayed.

The family want to thank everyone who called, sent cards, said prayers and offered their support. Special Thanks to his counsellor Adelle and the people at AA, and his best friends Shawn, Krista and their children and Clint, Kristine and their children. You were always there for him and he really felt like you were family.

A Celebration of Life will be held July 29th

at 1 pm at the Friendship Centre.

“Please feel free to wear black and silver, the Raiders Colours.”

In Lieu of flowers donations to the Friendship Centre would be appreciated.
