Trevor Giles

September 20, 1938 ~ February 01, 2018

       Trevor Lee Giles,79, passed away peacefully on February 1, 2018 in Bozeman, Montana. Trevor was born on September 20, 1938 to Edward and Verna Giles in Moline, Illinois. He was the second youngest of eight siblings.

       Early years of Trevor's life were spent in Moline. Through his whole life he knew the Quad Cities was always his first home. Wonderful times where spent in Akron, Ohio watching Cleveland Indian games, Greeneville, Tennessee where he had a deep love of the land, and many years in Lehigh Acres, Florida where the weather was always great for riding his Harley's. Later in semi-retirement he lived in Arkansas and Missouri enjoying living in a warm climate. In the last years of his life he relocated to Montana where he spent many great years. He cherished his time with his nephew, John Grogg in Kalispell, Montana and then his final years with his daughter, Courtney Giles in Bozeman, Montana. Within those final years in Montana he grew to have a passion for his time working out at Bozeman Hot Springs. He always said he was going to start running and never accepted his limitations till the very end.

       Trevor had a zest for life that was hard to beat. He always knew how to have a good time. He enjoyed riding his Harley's through his entire life. Another passion for Trevor was his lifelong die-hard loyalty to the Chicago White Soxs and Chicago Bears. Through Trevor's life his other passion was for his two favorite careers. As a merchant marine he was able to sail the world and he loved working as a grounds keeper for Lee County Parks and Recreation in Florida.

        Trevor is survived by five sons; one daughter; seven grandchildren; 14 great grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Preceding Trevor in his passing is all seven of his siblings: Audrey Clark, Donald Giles, John Giles, Kay Grogg, Maxine Lingard, Marilyn Olkawski, and Edie Kyseth as well as the love of his life Roxann Giles. Trevor always relished having such a large family.

        Anyone who got to know Trevor always understood he lived his life by his own terms. He never hesitated to give the shirt off his back if he could. He will be deeply missed by many many family and friends. To honor Trevor a family reunion will be held this summer in the Quad Cities, Illinois. Any sympathies and correspondence can be sent to Courtney Giles 1105 Baldy Mtn Ln Belgrade, MT 59714. Trevor requested to be cremated and his ashes spread in the Atlantic Ocean as well as a lake in the Teton Mountains of Wyoming.
