Not sure what to say?

Joel and I are surprised and saddened to hear of Mr. Trass's passing. On one of our last visits to Lake Providence, we enjoyed very pleasant moments with him, Dr. Hayes, and Charles.

Please know that we care and that we shall always appreciate Mr. Trass's leadership and stature.

Frances Swayzer Conley, Ed.D.

Mr. Trass will be truly missed. He was indeed a great principal. He taught the students to have respect for themselves, so that respect came naturally for others.
Rest in peace,
The Newton Family of Seattle, WA

Karen, I am so sorry for your family's loss. I am rarely stumped for words, but Mr. Trass' passing is one such occasion. This truly marks the end of an era in Lake Providence. We were all so blessed to have had such a loving disciplinarian as our school principal. His refusal to accept anything but the best instilled a like spirit in me and countless others who matriculated under his leadership. Even though he was tough, he was never mean-spirited...and his genuine affection for us was...

What a MAN! To impact so many lives in ones lifetime is just what the Lord would have. I last saw Mr.Trass in 2012 and his impact was as strong as ever. After my mother's services, my oldest daughter was so excited to have met him. She said "Ma, this man boldly walked up to us and said "now whose children are you all"? She said his approach was so bold until she felt like she had to hurriedly say. When he told them that he was "General Trass" she responded...

May God grant you strength, comfort and peace this day and the days to come. Karen, you and your family are in my prayers.

PRAY'N-4 The Family of General Trass, Jr. He will surely be missed, but not forgotten. His legacy will continue through all he touched with his life, his wisdom, his direction, and of course, his discipline!!!
