My husband and I have been going to the flea market for 16 years. Trey cooked us breakfast many many morns, kidded me when we didn't show up by saying it was my fault cause I couldn't get out of bed in time. Always called us "Kids" even though we are senior citizens. I think he called everyone kids. It was just one of his friendly endearments. To us Trey was the heart of the flea market and it will never be the same without him. Our condolences go out to his families, both immediate family and his flea market family. Everyone will miss him tremendously. He will always be in our hearts.

I met Trey at the gym, step and kickboxing classes. What a nice guy, always smiling and friendly. So sad to learn of his death. My thoughts and prayers are with his sister and family. I am so glad i had the opportunity know him. The world needs more kind people like Trey.
March 25, 2013
I went to school with Trey...always saw him at the flea market and just saw him the Tuesday before his passing at Sam's. We were the only crazy ones there to pick up early orders. Always a smile and a hug and just a "Hello." So sorry for your loss ..and a loss for all of us who knew him.
March 22, 2013
Dearest Cheri, I have never had a better friend than I did with your brother Trey. He was the BEST FREIND / BIG BROTHER I NEVER yet EVER had!

My heart is consumed with great saddness not just for me but for you and your family. I wish I could take away all the pain away from you.The LOVE I have for trey is also extended to you and your family. He was such a kind ,fun ,loving person, and I just know you all are too.

Cheri,
We were so sorry to hear of Trey,s passing. I remember his wonderful breakfasts he cooked for me on Saturday mornings at the Flea Market. He would cook me anything I wanted as long as it wasn't after 10:00 AM. He had a big heart and wonderful dry sense of humor. I know he will be missed by all his family as well as his flea market family. May God give you peace and comfort at this very difficult time.
March 20, 2013
Trey, I will miss your warm-hearted kindness and tremendous 'Southern' breakfasts at the Flea Market. You were loved by many.
May the Lord have mercy on you and take you to His bosom.
Eternal rest grant unto Trey, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the all the souls of the faithful departed, rest in peace. Amen

Dear Cheri and Family,

God's peace and consolations to you on Trey's passing. I will remember him and all of you at Mass and in my daily prayers. We never forget our childhood friends and classmates. Trey Stokes was a good man and good friend. From Pooler School, to the Pooler Cubs, to Mercer Junior High School Band and Football, to Savannah Youth Orchestra, and those ever-classic pick-up games of baseball, football, or even basketball. You may have left this earthly dwelling, Bro. Trey, but you will forever be in our hearts as our trusted classmate, neighbor, and hometown friend. Rest well, Trey, we'll see you on the other side.

Yours always,
March 19, 2013
Cheri, I am saddened to hear the hearthbreaking news of Trey. I saw him last summer and he looked real good. I will always remember all of the good times we had as kids.
Love, Angie Morgan

March 18, 2013
I had the great honor and privilege being Trey's friend and teammate at Savannah Christian School in '75 and '76 and being on the opposing sideline in '79 when I was at UTC and he was at The Citadel. It's impossible to spend as many grueling hours on the practice field giving your all for a common goal and not develop everlasting bonds with those who were there with you. Among Trey's friends and former teammates, I'm sure I'm not alone in sharing the anguish that comes with the loss of a beloved brother. The world was a much better place for so many of us because Trey was in it. Peace, love, and blessings of comfort to the family and all who loved him.
March 18, 2013
I am very sorry for your loss. I went to Savannah Christian School with Trey and I have not seen him in a long. You and your family will be in my prayers.
March 18, 2013
Cheri, we are so sorry for your loss. Our prayers are with you and the family.

Trey was one of a kind. I used to wait on him at the huddle house when I was sixteen. Me, my husband and four year old daughter go to the flea market every weekend. Lillian loves to get a hot dog from trey. This past sat we went to the kitchen and Lillian asked for trey. That is when we found out the news. I told my daughter that trey was needed in heaven to cook hotdogs for all of the other angels. We will miss him dearly! Trey always knew how to make us smile. I can hear him now what's going on kids. We love you trey
March 18, 2013
Rest in peace Trey. you WILL BE MISSED by all that knew you!
March 18, 2013
Your family are in his prays. We will miss his big smile and always incouraging us as we tried to survive workout.
March 18, 2013
I had the pleasure of having Trey as a member of the Salt Company (youth Choir) of Bull Street Baptist Church not long after I came to the church as Minister of Music in 1972. Trey was an enthusiastic member of the touring choir and the bell choir. He was involved in many activities in school and church and did them all well! I remember his smooth, easy going personality, his engaging smile and his encouraging spirit...uncommon for kids his age, but so real that he has left that impression on me for all of these years. So sorry for his untimely passing, but so grateful that he is in the loving presence of the One he loved to sing about.

March 18, 2013
Dear Cheri and Hubert, No amount of words will soothe your loss, but take comfort please in knowing that we all will miss Trey. That infectious smile and that quick wit passed from this earth much too soon for all of his friends and family. In my mind he always will be cooking breakfast in the kitchen on the week ends and roaming about the market during the week overseeing work in progress and making ready for the next week end. If I needed to locate him I'd just look for a blue truck and a cloud of dust... and then try to catch him! He left us some wonderful, happy memories to sustain us, and we are blessed to have known him.
March 18, 2013
Cheri: It is with sadness to hear of Trey's passing. For whatever reason, God has chosen to take a very sweet and giving person. I had fun working the ice cream booth many, many years ago. He definitely will leave a void at Keller's. Know that you and your family are in my prayers as you travel this last journey with him.
March 18, 2013
Tray will always be in our hearts. Such a wonderful person inside and out . We send our love and blessings to all the family.He will be surely missed by all who knew and loved him. May god's speed with all. Love The Alder Family in Tennessee (Angie and family)(Nancy and family)

Dear Cheri,
I am so sad to hear of Trey's passing. I first met Trey when we went to Mercer together. He was always the sweetest, most gentle guy. Cheri, you have been on my mind since I heard at the parade yesterday. You are such a sweet and caring person and you have had to endure so much. I know how strong you are and I pray that God will give you even more strength to get through this time. I pray for the comfort that only the passing of time can bring. Please know that you are in the thoughts and prayers of many. You have so many people who love you.
