Trent Alan Williams, age 8, beloved resident and hometown hero of Strasburg, VA, ended his courageous battle with brain cancer on Sunday, July 29, 2012, while receiving care at University of Virginia Medical Center, Charlottesville, VA. Our T-man fought a courageous fight since August 2010. He gave beyond what any warrior should, yet he stayed true to his character. No he did not lose his fight, he just no longer has the battle!

A funeral service for Trent will be conducted at 2:00 p.m. Thursday, August 2, 2012, at Strasburg High School, 250 Ram Drive, Strasburg VA 22657, with Dr. Rodney Vickers and Pastor Darrell Waller officiating. Burial will follow in Riverview Cemetery with Firemen honors conducted by Strasburg Fire Department, Company 51. A reception and time of fellowship will follow at Strasburg High School.

Trent was born on April 29, 2004 in Winchester, VA and lived in Strasburg, Virginia. Trent had numerous nicknames, but was lovingly known as T-man. He was a 2nd grade student at Sandy Hook Elementary School and played football for Pop Warner's Strasburg Rams #29 and enjoyed playing sports. Trent loved panda bears and Star Wars and was the #1 fan of all UVA sports, especially the individual team members. His favorite color was blue and he enjoyed dining out and especially loved crabs. Trent liked to go to Wal-Mart and tried to visit one in every town. He loved people and having people around him and always saw the good in every person he met. Trent loved without conditions; he brought peace to those in his presence and was always thinking of and taking care of others. Trent liked to dress well and loved a new pair shoes. Although Trent may be absent from our lives he will be forever in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.

Trent is the beloved son of Eric Alan and Jennifer Renee Petza Williams; brother to Caden and twin Logan Williams, all of the home; his loving grandparents, Ethel and Danny Dill of Felton, Delaware; John and Julie Petza of Winchester, VA, Margaret and Duane Williams of Front Royal, his great-grandparents, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family, a team of prayer warriors, and very special friends around the world who loved him yet never met him.

Pallbearers will be Nathan Hailey, Chad Wright, Bryan Wallace, Charles Richardson, Richard Sargent, Jr, Jonathan Fausey and Matthew Snyder.

The family will receive friends at Strasburg High School on Thursday from 11:00 a.m. ­- 2:00 p.m. prior to the service. The casket will remain open until the time of the service.
