It is with heavy hearts that the family of Trent Pappas Sr. expound upon his life as we grieve his passing on March 29, 2019. We would like to emphasize the immense impact that he had on all who were privileged to know him. He was a person who unselfishly saved so many others; his strong generosity will be felt for generations to come as will his resounding love for his family, friends and church.
