Green River-On April 1, 2023. After a long battle with failing health, Trent L. Burr passed from this earthly life into the loving arms of his mother who was waiting to receive him in paradise. Trent was born on July 17, 1964, to G. Thomas and Phyllis (Hunt) Burr in Monticello, Utah. His family later moved to Green River, where he grew up in a loving LDS home, the youngest of 5 children. Trent participated in many sports activities: Track, Football, Basketball, and Wrestling. He was involved in Drama, from Hello Dolly to Oklahoma, in which his role was Curly. He enjoyed singing in the choir and also participated in Boys State. Trent worked hard to help his father install the first cable network in Green River.
