In Loving Memory of

Lawrence Trevor Westwood

March 28, 1939 – November 3, 2022

Trevor was born on Vancouver Island in the small town of Chemainus BC in March 1939. Not long after his birth, the family moved to the Lower Mainland where Trevor spent much of his childhood growing up in and around Vancouver. He was a big sports fan and excelled at Soccer.

Trevor had fond memories of his time in banking, often talking about working in Penticton and Victoria at the beginning of his career. He moved his family up to Revelstoke in the early 1970’s, where he spent 5 years as a bank manager. After returning to the Vancouver region, his career took him into building supply sales. He enjoyed his work immensely and spent countless hour talking about the people he would meet and the products he sold. Anyone who knew Trevor knows he always had a story to tell.

After battling and overcoming cancer initially in 2010, Trevor had a recurrence in 2020 which eventually overcame him at the age of 83.

Trevor was familiar with many popular Bible stories and verses, and in 2020 he and his brother both proclaimed their faith in Jesus, repented and were baptised together in the name of Jesus.

We take comfort in the promise written in John 11:25 “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:”

Trevor was predeceased by his younger brother in February 2022 and is survived by his 3 children and many grandchildren.


My condolences to the family. I worked with Trevor at Lumberland Mission 1992 Great person to work with. RIP my friend

So sorry for your loss. You will be comforted by good memories. It is ironic that just this week my sister and I were saying we hadn’t heard anything from Trevor on Facebook. We also thought about his mother, our mothers sister Eveline. And his little brother Alan who died young and was the same age as me. I’m now 80.
