Trevor Stocks

September 5, 1942 – June 15, 2014. It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Trevor Stocks, after a lengthy battle with lung cancer. Trevor was born in Darlington, England on September 5, 1942. He immigrated to Canada with his parents, Donald and Nora Stocks, in October, 1947. He attended school in Kindersley, Saskatchewan, and then he joined the Royal Canadian Navy. After Trevor left the Navy he worked with his parents at the Brocklehurst Town and Country Store, then he was employed as a Store Manage for Super Value. During this time he established and managed the Kamloops Sea Cadet Corps. He was very proud of his “Troop”. Trevor managed several stores in various parts of B.C. and Alberta, and then he settled in Nelson for 25 years with his wife, Teri. He worked for Super Value, Cominco, operated his own farm and then became an owner/manager of the Lord Nelson Hotel. Then he moved to Mara where he and his wife owned and operated the Mara Foodliner for 12 years. After Trevor became ill, they retired and moved to Lake Country, near Kelowna, B.C. Trevor is survived by his wife, Theresa; his parents, Donald and Nora Stocks (Kamloops), his sisters: Gloria Humphrey (Kamloops); Susan (Brian) Gilowski (Vernon); and Donna Stocks (Joe Szigeti) of Kamloops.

He also leaves eight grandchildren: Bryan Moore, Tamara Stocks; Kyle & Alicia Luterbach; Austin & Brady Stocks. Trevor was fortunate to live long enough to see his 2 Great Grandsons, Trevor Stocks and Sam Moore. Trevor leaves many nieces and nephews that he cherished and watched grow into young adults. Trevor spent many wonderful times with his family members travelling and camping. He often spoke of his good times sitting around the campfire with Pat and Joe of Quesnel; and his many laughs with Bonnie, Cindy and Harold. Trevor had many close friends and associates whom he also leaves to mourn him. Among them are Koji Kobayashi of Kamloops, Murray Hoeman of Peachland, and Ken and Gerry Soetart of Kelowna.
