Trent E. Flair

June 27, 1965 – September 7, 2023

Trent Eric Flair was born in Omaha, Nebraska on June 27, 1965 and entered heaven on September 7, 2023.

Trent was preceded in death by father Larry Flair and aunt Sharon Flair. Trent is survived by mother Bonita Flair, brothers Mike (Roxanne) Flair and Keith Flair, the love of his life Michelle Flair, nieces and nephews Katie (Tom) Thiel, Luke (Lauren) Flair, Andrew (Macy) Flair, Keshia (Cody) Roloff, Amber Kurtz, Cassidy Kurtz and many great nieces and nephews.

Trent attended Pawnee Elementary School where he and his brothers would “walk the path” each day, rain or shine. Trent graduated from Bryan High School and eventually joined Mike working as a cook at The Stockade Restaurant. From there, Trent worked in shipping and receiving at local businesses for many years using his strong work ethic and attention to detail to manage the many moving parts of the warehouse. More recently, Trent could be found with a paint brush helping Keith with a remodeling project.

Trent married Michelle, the love of his life, in September of 1990. They shared their lives together for 38 years, along with their beloved German Shepherds Lakota and Lexie, enjoying the outdoors with activities such as boating, catfishing, camping and spending time at the cabin with friends while sitting around the campfire late into the night.

Trent was someone everyone counted on. When anyone needed help with a task like trimming trees, building a structure or clearing snow, you could count on Trent to always be there to lend a hand. Trent’s elderly neighbors considered him an adopted son and knew they could count on him to look after their needs.

Trent’s family and close friends knew of his recent struggles with depression and despite the efforts by so many to help him, he was unable to escape the darkness that consumed him.

Memorials are suggested to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. A fundraising page on Trent’s behalf has been established for others who may be struggling with mental health issues can be found at:

VISITATION:  Thursday, September 14th from 4pm to 6pm at the West Center Chapel, followed by SERVICES at 6pm.

    I can’t begin to express my sorrow in knowing Trent is gone. He was a blessing to my family…. helping and watching over my parents who lived next door. He was the (adopted) son my parents never had. I know both Myrtle and Jim are there to welcome and greet you in your new heavenly life. You were an angel flying to close to the ground. You will be truly missed.

    You are at peace now, and don’t have to struggle anymore. Too young to be gone, but never forgotten!

    Just my rambling thoughts and remembrance:
    Although Trent has passed and left behind sorrow and to some degree disbelief, he has also left us with a lot of good memories and a friendship that will be cherished by me forever.
    My biggest regret is that I could not find that deep dark space that he held and shine a brighter ray of sunshine on it no matter how hard myself-Mike-Jimmy and others that cared for him tried.
    He is missed but never forgotten.
    Dan S.
