Not sure what to say?

I was there, at Trevor's one day when he started playing with ideas for a wind up radio.
He was sincerely concerned about the people who needed the help and ability to hear news,

My deepest sympathies for your loss please know that God is aware of your pain and wants to bring you comfort phillipeans 4:6,7.

Happy Memories of Trevor's visit to our Village Day, Norwood Green. A remarkable man.

I will always remember my father and Trevor heads together under the bonnet of which ever car either was working on - visiting his work shop - seeing his excitement over his 'wind-up radio'. I moved away had a family, my boys met him when they were young. We all have fond memories of Trevor. RIP Casey Clarke nee Kester

Trevor and I worked together at Purley Pools Ltd all through the 1960's and afterwards when he was a great help to me with structural calculations, even when he was recovering from Crones he came to many of my families parties, weddings etc - and I went to a number of his birthday parties on the Island when he had The Temperence Seven playing, also friends of mine - He had already had over 250 inventions being used by the time we left Purley in about 1969, so how many he must have logged up...

I would like to express my deepest sympathies for the loss of your loved one who will be remembered for his invention. May you find comfort and help in God during this time of sorrow.

I'm sorry for your loss. May God grant solace during this most challenging time. Trevor was truly an amazing and talented man. With Love
