Trevor's Legacy Foundation

follow us on social media 

On August 29, 2015, while on his way to work, Trevor Torkelson‘s young life was tragically ended due to a drunk driver. Trevor was a positive in so many lives. He loved to make people smile. He was protective, funny, compassionate, a great friend, a loyal employee and a great loss to his family and community. Trevor couldn’t bear to see anyone hurting and when he did, he would try to bring comfort in any small way he could. A caring and protective son and brother, Trevor was always there to make his mom smile, share a basketball or baseball skill with his young brother, or even play dolls with his little sister. Trevor's huge heart and life touched so many, and we want nothing less in his death. We have created the Trevor’s Legacy Foundation to carry on his compassionate legacy and improve the quality of life for others.


Trevor Torkelson attended Kadoka Area High School and had a passion for children and sports; especially basketball and Michael Jordan. Trevor had a heart of gold. He was always a caretaker for his family and could not bear to see children hurting. 

This is the motivation behind his Foundation; to help raise money with our team of volunteers for children in need due to serious illness or injury.
