Trey Randall Swenson

Trey Randall Swenson was born on September 12, 1995, in Austin, Texas to Randall and Melissa Swenson. Growing up in Elgin, Texas, Trey attended Elgin High School, later going on to Texas State University where he graduated with a degree in Computer Information Systems.

After college, Trey moved into an apartment in Austin with his sister and best friend, Shelbi, beginning his first job in tech sales with Canonical. It was during this time of immense personal and professional growth that Trey found his first and only love, Blake. The two were infectiously happy together and for the first time Trey was able to be his most authentic self.

Goals for the future and plans for success were always an important aspect of Trey’s life, starting from childhood. Saving every penny for his college expenses and ultimately paying off his entire tuition before graduation, it has always been clear Trey achieved anything he set his mind and heart to. Most recently, Trey was looking forward to life with his little family and new puppy, Maple – as well as his recent promotion to Account Executive at work. Trey was also hatching plans to acquire his first home in the next few months.

Trey loved traveling, time on the lake, all things interior design, dancing, margaritas at Enchiladas y Mas, video games, cooking, skateboarding, working out, listening to Britney Spears on his record player, his puppy, Maple, and spending time with family and friends.

Trey always exhibited such a positive outlook on life. Rarely would you see him without a smile. He was extremely giving, caring, and required nothing in return. He had daily check-in chats with his mom, and without a doubt was the absolute centerpiece of our family. Always the one to coordinate our functions down to every menu item. He looked up to his older brother, Tyler, for guidance and advice on life, and took care of his sister, Shelbi, and truly loved being with them. All the ‘sibz’ were extremely tight and it is because of him that our family has had the privilege of remaining so close.

He is survived by his loving grandmother, Lou Arbuckle, parents, Melissa and Randy, his older brother, Tyler, and wife Allie, his older sister, Shelbi, his partner, Blake, and his puppy, Maple, numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins along with countless other supportive family and friends. He is preceded in death by grandfathers, W.E. Arbuckle Jr. and Merle Swenson and grandmother, Pat Hunt. We all look forward to carrying on Trey’s legacy.

Tragically, Trey passed away in the loving arms of Jesus on January 8, 2022.

Rest in peace, brother.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
