Trevor was a graduate of Seton Catholic High School in Plattsburgh, N.Y. and went on to earn a degree in Public Relations / Marketing from Plattsburgh State University. It was at SUNY Plattsburgh that he developed his love for travel through study abroad programs, first in Brazil, and then Monterray, Mexico. Following a liver transplant at the Mayo Clinic in 2010, Trevor remained a traveler, and wrote fondly of his trips to Europe, the people he met, and the prospects of his next adventure. He was a promising writer, and shared a love for both literature and film. He took tango lessons, was a talented ping pong player, and did volunteer work for Habitat for Humanity, CVPH Medical Center in Plattsburgh, and the Lake Placid Film Festival.
In 2009, he moved to Jacksonville, Fla. to begin treatment at the Mayo Clinic, where he later became a public affairs intern. Trevor's zest for life was evident in all that he did. He is remembered for his wisdom, strength of heart, and the efforts he made to provide support and encouragement to others who shared his challenges. Trevor is survived by his mother Eileen, father James Bougill, and his brother Bill, his aunt Anne Thoet and uncles Bill and Denis Thoet and Ber Enright.
In memorum of his advocacy for organ donation and cancer research, Trevor's body was donated for the benefit of transplant and cancer research.
