Trevor was always the sweetest man since I met him in high school. God bless you and your family, and thank you so much for your service. ❤️🤍💙
I remember meeting you our freshman year of high school. We eventually got to know each other more through football, and we were both pretty new to it. You were always a super kind, but also one of the more witty people I knew. I would remember when we would both try to eat a lot of food and you wouldn’t stop eating until your jaw hurt. We lost connection over the years, but I’m glad I am able to say I knew a hero like you. You’re someone who I have a lot of respect for. Hopefully you rest easy brotha.
Trevor, you were always one to put others before yourself regardless of who they were. I couldn’t of asked for a better friend growing up an truly will miss the laughs we’ve shared. Rest easy man.
You were a true n sincere friend to our son Tony since 2nd grade. You always made sure Tony had a ride home in H S. You were always kind and very polite n took time for everyone else. We will miss ur smile. You always made sure to get ahold of Tony whenever u came back into town. It made Tonys day to see you n catch up. What a great kid you were. We thank you for your service n pray God will surround your family with his love during this most difficult time. Such a horrible thing for your family to endure. Many hugs sent their way.
Trevor you will be missed by many. I will alway remember the day I met you. The friendship and brotherhood you shared with my son Andy will always hold a special place in my heart. God sure has a way of bringing people together. Your friendship with Liam brought you to our home, then to discover that Andy was Liam’s childhood bestie and you and Andy were scheduled to leave for bootcamp the same day. Some call that coincidence, I call it fate. My prayers are with your parents and family. May you rest in God’s eternal peace. ❤🙏🇺🇸❤
Your loss is so deeply felt by your friends back in Illinois. Tears are flowing, stories are shared. Your friends miss you dearly.
I only met you a few times, but I found you to be a stand up young man. Thank you for your service. We have all lost a great young man. Rest in peace Trevor!
Dear Karen, George, Monica & family,
There are no words that we can say that describe how saddened we feel upon the passing of Trevor. You are in our thoughts & prayers that our Lord will give you his strength & peace In these difficult times. May Trevor’s memory be eternal.
Alexis & Jim
Trevor, as your teacher I admired then for you for your humble strengths. You were patient, attentive, helpful and mindful. You were wiser and more mature than your years of age. Thank you for being a great student then. Thank you for being a patriot and serving your country as an adult now. I know you are dearly missed and this is most certainly a tragic loss for us all. May you Rest In Peace. God bless you and your family. Many prayers for you, your family, and our servicemen and women.
Our most sincere condolences to your family and the world on the loss of such an Outstanding person. The impact will be immense. Praise God to have you now in the palm of his hand where you are forever safe, loved and happy as we relish in the thought of you being in a better place. May that bring us comfort during this difficult time. Love, Deb, Hank, Frank and Tad Szymanski
Words cannot express how truly heartbroken and sad we are. Trevor was a hard working, dedicated and devoted young man that will be forever missed.
Rest in Peace Sgt. Trevor Goldyn.
George, Karen, Monica, The words are hard to find to express how truly sorry we are to hear of the loss of our loving grandson Trevor. An amazing son to you Karen and George and brother to Monica 😢.
To Trevor :
They say memories are golden, well, maybe that is true. We never wanted memories, We only wanted you Trevor.
In life We loved you dearly, in death We love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place no one else could fill.
If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane, We’d walk the path to Heaven and bring you back again. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same. But as God calls us back one by one,
the chain will link again. You will be forever missed dear grandson! 🙏🙏❤️
Dear Karen, George and Monica, It’s hard to
find the words to convey how saddened we are to hear of Trevor’s passing. Our hearts are broken and we share in your tragic loss. We are praying for you and all the family to find the strength and faith to carry on and treasure and honor Trevor’s memory. May his memory be eternal. Love and prayers, Henry, Denise and family
Your bravery, kindness & dedication was something I looked up to when I was younger. You were such a genuine human being that everyone enjoyed being around and the best cousin one could ask for. You will never be forgotten, and thank you for your service. Rest in peace.
Trevor, you really were the light in everyone’s eyes. Growing up and having you as a cousin was amazing. We went from playing with toys as babies, to you helping me around figuring out high school. We all miss you. Thank you for your bravery, strength, and service. I love you.
Trevor, my dear nephew, are hearts are broken and we will miss you here on earth but we know you are home in heaven. You were an inspiration to all that came to know you. You were kind, thoughtful, smart, brave, patriotic, and religious. We will keep you in our hearts and Prayers forever. We love you dearly and thank you for your service. Until we meet again Love Aunt Martha
My heart goes out to you. Trever was an awesome person and a great friend to all. He will be dearly missed and holds a special place in everyone’s heart that was blessed enough to have known him.
George, Karen, Monica & family-
Words cannot truly express our profound sadness at the loss of Trevor. It was our pleasure and honor to get to know your kind, fun, respectful and courageous son through the years. We loved having him stay with us and we were very proud of him. His friendship with Liam was the kind we all hope we experience at some point in our lifetime. Trevor’s life was a blessing and his memory is a treasure. He will live in all our hearts forever. We thank
him for his service….”Nothing is Stronger Than the Heart of a Volunteer”. May he Rest In Eternal Peace.
Love & Prayers,
George, Karen, Monica, I can’t express enough the sorrow I have for your loss. Trevor, watching you grow up I have so many memories. Fleeting moments that have always stayed with me. Such fond memories of you as a child and watching you grow as a young man, hanging out in the basement playing billiards, watching football during the holidays, playing bags in your backyard and more. I will always remember the pride and courage you have for serving our country. Thank you for being you. You’ll never be forgotten.
Trevor, your years on this Earth were too few but your accomplishments were many! You meant so much to so many people and you will be truly missed but never forgotten! Sgt. Trevor M. Goldyn, it was an honor to say you were my nephew!
Trevor, we are heartbroken you’ve been called to Heaven at such a young age. Doesn’t make sense but God has his reasons. Heaven has been blessed by you. You were our hero and always will be. So proud of you and proud to have been your aunt and uncle. We will miss you. You will live in our hearts forever. Rest in peace. We love you lots!!!
My Beloved Grandson Trevor,
I have so many cherished memories of you; from the time you were born to the last time I saw you on your leave. You made your Da and I so very proud. It has given me comfort to know your Da is there to welcome you into Heaven. Trevor, you will forever live on in my heart. Until we meet again.
With all of my love,
Your Mena Kate
I will always remember your dedication, kindness and infectious smile. I had the privilege of watching you grow into a remarkable young man. I was honored to witness your strength and success on the football field and the wrestling team. You were an impressive force and a true team player. Above all, you are a hero. I will forever be grateful for your willingness to defend freedom for all of us. I could not be more proud to call you my godson.
I love you,
You were always so welcoming to us whenever we came to your home. Your generosity and compassion were cornerstones of your character. Steadfast and loyal, your kindness spoke volumes. We wish we would be able to see you again and talk to you about your adventures abroad. Receiving updates about where you were and what you were up to were always highlights of our day. We miss you tremendously, Trevor. We’ll think of you often and remember your heroism and bravery.
We have fond memories of you and your wonderful family. We were so sorry to hear about your passing. You are a Hero and you will not be forgotten. We send our condolences and prayers to the Goldyn family.
Thank you for fighting for our country! You are a Hero. Rest in peace.
Trevor, Sgt Goldyn,
Hey brother, we spent a few months together in Bahrain. You taught me a lot while we were there. I wish I would have taken the time to get to know you more than I did, but our schedules were the exact opposite at all times. You were a great guy and I’m gonna miss that rare smile and laugh you had. I miss you man. Rest in piece brother.
