Patrick Tyrrell Trevor, 50, Moline and Naples, Fla., died Sunday, Aug. 27, 2000, at home in Moline, after a four-year fight with multiple myeloma, cancer of the bone marrow. Multiple myeloma attacks the immune system, prevents the body from producing blood, and causes the bones to become brittle and break.
Services are 11 a.m. Thursday at DeRoo Funeral Home, Moline. Burial is in Greenview Memorial Gardens, East Moline.
Visitation is 3 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at the funeral home. Memorials may be made to the International Myeloma Foundation Midwest Action Committee or the Leukemia Society of America.
Mr. Trevor was born June 28, 1950, in Davenport. He was a 1968 graduate of Moline Senior High School and attended Augustana College. He married Patricia Dietz Nov. 27, 1971.
Together with his parents, John ``Jack'' and Verna Trevor, and his brother, Butch Trevor, he was a co-owner of Trevor True Value Hardware from 1960 to 1984. Upon leaving the family business he purchased Hanalei True Value in Princeville, Kauai, Hawaii. The business was sold in 1988, and he and his family returned to the Quad-Cities. For the past 10 years, Mr. Trevor was employed by TruServ Corp. as a retail-development consultant, last working in May 1998.
