I knew this man was very special just from conversations I had with him and his family back in 2006 as we were remodeling his kitchen! Hi was sooo appreciative, expressing his gratitude often for the work on his kitchen! He was a memorable client! I'm sad to have only now discovered his passing while updating my client reference list and his previous ph# was no more! Working in his home was an enjoyable experience and I could tell that we were in the company of a unique & passionate artist, tho only now to this great extent! I know he is sorely missed and fondly remembered! "Sarah" (Trevor's daughter living with him at that time 11 yrs ago) tho we were only acquainted via the remodel project, pls accept this delayed though heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your father.

I am grateful that I had the privilege of having Trevor Southey for my professor in an honors program art class at BYU in about 1977. It was an amazing experience. He was so humble and so sensitive, yet patient and tolerant of students lacking his obvious artistic gifts. (I passed his class.) I will long remember him fondly.

Trevor and his work were an inspiration to me. I met Trevor at an art gallery in the Sugarhouse area of Salt Lake City around 1980. I purchased three of his oil paintings. I remember Trevor as a kind, intelligent, open and honest individual. He strived for excellence and created art with that classic renaissance feel.
