Richard Harold “Dick” Trever

Richard Harold “Dick” Trever, 66, Town of Underhill, passed away unexpectedly at his home on April 30, 2019.


He was born August 16, 1952 to Harold and Nellie (Christensen) Trever. Dick attended Suring schools and graduated in 1970. He received a degree in auto mechanics from NWTC and spent the rest of his life fixing everything from cars to tractors to computers to the people he loved. Dick was the parts manager at Farmers Implement in Shawano until it closed. He then opened his own repair business, Sand Rapids Equipment, in 1987 and ran that until his death.


Dick married Elizabeth Verhoven on May 27, 2000 and together they loved all their children and grandchildren. He also taught small engine repair at Gillett High School in the early 2000s. Dick enjoyed sudoku, nature walks, watching Jeopardy, stock car races, and giving his grandchildren nicknames. Richard loved his family above all else, and his faith in God was an inspiration to all who knew him.


Dick is survived by his loving wife of almost 19 years, Elizabeth; their children: Christy Lockstein, Chris (Jennifer) Abel, Jeremy Abel, Michelle Abel, Cory Trever, Cynthia (Jeremy) Doblinger, and Jacob Bergmann; grandchildren: Douglas “Buck” Kallies, Molly “Max” (Michael) Kocken, Amelia “Belle” Lockstein, KayLynn Rios, Nina Abel, Coleten Andersen, Andrew “Bug” and Adrian Trever, Bryce “Sparky” and Megan “Sally” Doblinger; great-grandchildren: Gavin “Bo” and Vivian “Nelle” Kocken; his sister Diane Hansen; and many niece, nephews, cousins, and friends.


Dick was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Donald, and his brother-in-law Ralph Hansen.

  1. you have my Deepest sympathy so sorry for your loss
    Dick will be missed by all may God bless you all inthis time of sorrow

  2. Dick was my other father for almost all of my life. He would always drop whatever he was doing to help our family out when we would need it. He was an amazing man with a kind heart and huge soul! I remember once about 5 yrs back I went in the ditch right in front of his house and he came out and asked me if I knew where the road was or if I was just coming to visit him?? He pulled me out with his tractor and told me to keep on the road. 2 weeks later I ended up in the ditch again but this time at the end of my driveway I called him and asked if he could come help me out and he said sure he would be right down he told me if you wanted to see me so bad you didn’t have to go in the ditch you could have just stopped over! He had a great sense of humor and and even greater sense of love for his neighbors and friends and family. He will be missed greatly. Soar high Dick I promise I won’t go in the ditch anymore!
