Trevor was preceded in death by his Father Jerry Bernard.
While growing up in New Ulm Trevor enjoyed playing, hiking and hunting in the woods that surrounded his boyhood home. He loved to fish, and always enjoyed a good party with friends. He participated in the Cub and Boy Scout organizations; an activity he shared with his Dad Jerry. Trevor was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and graduated from New Ulm Senior High School, Class of 1985. Following graduation Trevor entered the Job Corps. In his quest to connect with his Native ancestry Trevor was ceremoniously adopted by the Sharon Enjady-Mitchell family. Trevor next traveled to Canada where he located and spent time with his biological family the LeFortes. He also spent many years with special friend Elaine Naytowhowt, Saskatoon Saskatchewan, and they too became part of his ever expanding family. Trevor earned his Associate Degree in Addictions from SIIT Institute and was most recently employed in Saskatoon as a Job Coach for people with disabilities.
Trevor had a gentle spirit and a true love for all people. He was a gifted story-teller with a unique sense of humor, great smile and infectious laugh. To know him was to love him. He enjoyed listening to music, spending time with his many families, and had a special place in his heart for his beloved dogs. Trevor had the ability to turn acquaintances into friends where ever his travels led him. His wishes were to return to New Ulm when his earthly journey ended, and now he is welcomed home. Trevor touched many lives, and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him

    Trevor was an awesome childhood friend and I enjoyed playing in the woods around their home and spending time with him on many Cub Scout and Boy Scout trips with him and his late father. Great person, great times, great memories.
