The Triple Eight Tour | Sad News

Whilst I know the majority of you reading this will have already heard the sad news, there may be some that haven’t, so here goes.

On the morning of the 1st August Trev suffered what we currently believe to be a massive heart attack. We’d just had a morning cuppa, I’d got up to go to the washroom and Trev was sitting on the edge of his bed readying to get up. He keeled over onto the aisle in between the two beds, completely unresponsive as he went down. I called 999 and managed to get him on his back to start CPR until the ambulance arrived. They were very quick and were soon joined by the air ambulance too. They worked on him for an hour but to no avail.

He was pronounced dead at 0940.

Currently I am waiting on the Coroner to see if they want to do a PM and can’t move things forward until then.

When they do release his body, I will be taking him home, to Cambridge. We had many very happy years on the south coast but Trev was born and brought up in Cambridge. We met there and he spent most of his life there. It was a city he loved very much and was extremely proud of.

I know many friends around Brighton will want to pay their respects and I am pondering a number of possibilities with that in mind and will of course be in touch when things become clearer.

It’s been a truly awful few days. I’ve felt heartache and and sense of loss I didn’t think possible - and I know many reading this know exactly what I mean. We’ve known each other over thirty years and been through some very good times. Trev was a rock when I lost my parents and I hope I was able to help him cope with the loss of a sister, brother, then his dear old Mum.

However it’s a time that’s been made more bearable thanks to my cousin and his family who live nearby and by all the wonderful messages of support I’ve received online through social media. It really has helped me through and it’s heart-warming to know that he was held in such high regard by so many.

There’s a little video to say thank you on the YouTube channel. That’s all for now.

Cheers

Rich

P.S. Thanks to Dan Trudgian for this wonderful photo of Trev. I will treasure it forever.

  1. 💕 To you from both of us, you may need to dig deep at times but you're doing so well, Trev would be so very proud. There will be times when it will be harder than you thought possible, but also times when you'll get to remember some of the wonderful memories you shared with joy. It's OK to not be OK too, and there are many people who will help you through those times you just need to say the word. Love and hugs A xx

  3. So very sorry to hear about this! social media is a very powerful tool for every thing good, bad and off course sad news such as this. My self and our family are keen caravaners and over the past few years we have enjoyed the videaos, blogs comment stories etc. Social media has grown so much and many people such as yourselves are using it to great effect with the fantastic blogs and videos mentioned above and to see so many people enjoying the freedom in their caravans and motorhomes and off course the amazing British countryside is quite honestly amazing. I feel that the caravaning community is very much like a family and although you dont necessarily know people physically you do feel close to them when reading social media. So based on this and to read about the passing of poor Trevor it is extremely hard and I would like to pass on my condolences to you and your family. It must be extremely hard but do have faith and confidence in the fact that there is a fantastic community that is here for you should you need anything.
    All the very best form the Stephens family.
    Thanks
    John
