Trent passed away peacefully at home on June 20. He was born on January 23, 1973, in Anchorage, Alaska, at Providence Hospital to Kathy and Butch Wilson. He lived in Anchorage with his parents until moving to Juneau, and graduating from Juneau Douglas High school in 1992.

Trent's first love, after family and friends, was being on the waters of Southeast Alaska. His love began at the tender age of 3 months, boating with his parents, then at the age of 16 commercial fishing with family friends in Prince William Sound. He assisted in the cleanup of the Exon Valdez oil spill of 1989. He was also really enjoyed tourism sales and worked for Juneau Tours for a length of time and opened his own companies, Alaska Tackle Company and Affordable Decals & Signs. His most recent and proudest endeavor born out of his love of cooking was opening the Wild Alaskan Halibut Food Trailer in May. Trent was an excellent cook and always generously chaired his creations with family and friends. You could always depend on Trent for the best stuffed mushrooms and special pickles.

Trent's generosity and willingness to help a friend or family in need most characterized his life.

He is preceded in death by his brother Kevin Guy, Father Maurice Gene (Butch), Uncle Guy Edwards Kasnick, and both maternal and paternal grandparents.

He is survived by his sons Cody Wilson, Glendale, AZ; Cole Wilson, Anchorage, AK, and Elijah Wilson of Waldport, OR; mother Kathy Wilson; aunts & uncles Shirley & Larry Matheny, Karen & Paul Dillon, Rick & Rachel Kasnick; great uncle Bob Kasnick of Oregon; nephews Grey Wilson of Ninilchik, AK, Gabriel Wilson of Medford, Oregon; and many cousins.

The family asks that any donations be made to a children's .

A Celebration of Life will be held at The Island Pub on July 9 from 1pm to 3pm.
