It is with great sadness that we announce the end of Trevor’s courageous battle with cancer. Trevor Crilly of Durham, in his seventieth year, died in his home surrounded by the love of his family. Trevor was full of life and so truly grateful for everyday he had. Trevor had a bright soul, was easy to get along with and would help anyone in need. Trevor is remembered by his countless volunteer hours and time spent with the Durham Rotary Club, Durham Art Gallery, Durham Food Bank, Communities in Bloom – Durham, Town of Durham Council, School Breakfast Program, and Abbeyfield House Durham. He is remembered by the love of his life and best friend Eilleen Crilly, the best daddy to Stephanie Crilly (Adam McDonald), “The Man, The Myth, The Legendary Pops” to Chloe Harrison (Mark Aljoe), and his loyal four legged son Seamus Crilly. He will be truly missed by his extended family that he adored deeply, Paul, Jennifer, Liam, Rylan, Julian, and Lucian McDonald. Loved by his brothers Andrew Crilly of Scotland, Gavan (Rosemary) Crilly of Oshawa, and sister Sharon (Brian) Craver of Vancouver.
