Small, James Trevor (Trev)

June 6, 1936 – April 15, 2022

It is with profound sadness that we announce that Trevor Small of Stittsville passed away peacefully Good Friday morning at the age of 85, surrounded by loved ones.

Trevor will be dearly missed by his beloved wife & soulmate of 62 years (June 25, 1960) Marlin Jean Small (nee: Dodds).  Trevor and Marlin have been inseparable dance and life partners since they met while employed at the Royal Bank in 1956.

Trevor will be sadly missed and remembered by his three children; Gerald Trevor Walter (Liz) of Phoenix, Arizona; Stephanie Mary Nora Durling (Guy Charbonneau) of Carleton Place; Kimberley Marlin Jean Small (Tyler O’Malley) of Stittsville.

Proud loving Grandfather of eight grandchildren and one Great Granddaughter; Kristen, and Madison Durling, Benjamin Jennings all of Carleton Place; Layla Small-Brassington, Jamison  and Mackenzie Small of Phoenix, AZ;  Hailley and Morgan Seed of Stittsville;  Peighton Chase of Carleton Place.

Trevor is lovingly remembered by his sister Frances Small of Victoria, B.C. and many Nieces, Nephews, and Friends from near and far.

Trevor was pre-deceased by his loving parents and parent in-laws, Benjamin Gerald & Virginia Beatrice Mary Small (nee: Rivet) of Vancouver, B.C., Walter & Nora Dodds (nee:Flegal) of Arnprior.  Brothers, George and Robert and sister Geraldine, all of British Columbia.

Trevor will be fondly remembered by everyone as a one-of-a-kind man with a heart of gold and a Jack of all trades who was not afraid to try his hand at anything, but his specialty was Mathematics and Trivia.  He even tried out for Jeopardy but never got the callback.

After Marlin and Trevor were married a few years, Trevor attended night classes at Carleton University and obtained his Registered Industrial Accounting degree.  Trevor spent his life working as a Certified General Accountant doing personal & small business income tax for 50 years, loving every minute of his work acquiring many lifelong friends.  Trevor retired in 2000 at the age of 64 from Statistics Canada.

As lovers of country music, Trev and Marnie were members of Barrhaven Senior Fiddlers Dance Association for 35 years.

Marlin and Trevor’s love of travel included numerous vacations with family and friends, the most memorable being a Caribbean cruise, 5 weeks in Europe, 3 weeks touring the Hawaiian Islands and travelling with son Gerald & Family in a motorhome through Bryce Canyon, to Yellowstone Park in Utah, and a month long holiday touring Alaska, that they considered a trip of a lifetime that included traveling the  top of the World Highway, Arctic Circle, Dawson and many conservations that they always hoped to visit again.

The Family would like to thank all those that provided food, support and prayers.  Special thanks to Dr. Amjadi at T.O.H, and Dr. Brien Whalen for the compassionate care over the years.

Thanks also to his dear sister-in-law Lois Rump and special friend Carmel Cyr for the many times they helped Trev through his illness.  Special thanks to a very special friend Faye Adams, for being there with regular phone calls of support and Reverend Elaine Beattie and the Pastoral Care Team from the Glen Cairn United Church.
