Trevor D. Irby, age 25, died tragically in Gilroy, California on Sunday, July 28, 2019.
Trevor was born in Rochester, NY on December 8, 1993 and had lived in Romulus throughout his childhood. He was a 2012 graduate of Romulus Central School and a 2017 graduate of Keuka College. While attending Keuka College in Penn Yan, he met his girlfriend, Sarah. Together, they have traveled extensively, and most recently lived in Santa Cruz, CA while he worked as a medical technician at Brookdale in Scotts Valley, CA.
“Trevor was a brother, a son, a grandson, a boyfriend, a best friend, and a bright light to all who knew him. Trevor was an excellent pillar of the Keuka College and Romulus communities and a kind and positive soul.
