Randall Trenton Powers

February 14, 1979 - June 15, 2020

It is with great sorrow and heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved Son, Brother, Father, Uncle and Best Friend; Trent (Shrek) Powers, 41, on June 15th, 2020, from a rare form of Cancer. <br /> <br /> Trent was born February 14th, 1979 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Jolynn and Randy Powers. Growing up in Sandy and West Valley, Utah, Trent formed incredible bonds of love and friendship that grew stronger throughout his lifetime. <br /> <br /> Our Valentine's day baby was a handsome hopeless romantic who believed that strength, a little temper, and a lot of love could get him through anything. With his shy smile, incredible laugh, and the ability to break into dance at the drop of a hat, the Ladies could not stay away! Trent was a die-hard Raiders Fan (Raider Nation!!), an absolute UTE, and a loyal Jazz fan. Trent enjoyed many activities; camping, hiking, playing video games, kissing on the cheeks, laughing and expressing his love to anyone who would answer their phones late at night! Spending time with his friends and family was the ultimate happiness for Trent. <br /> <br /> Trent started his career in the construction and framing industry. He was an incredibly hard worker and took great pride in a job well done. For the last 10 years, he was a part of the Mud Buddy Motors family, a career and company he found a home with. <br /> <br /> By far though, Trent's pride and joy were his two amazing children. His greatest accomplishment was becoming a Father. He loved his children fiercely and completely and did his best to make sure they knew it. He did not want to leave them and he fought his heart out to stay with them until the very last second. <br /> <br /> Trent impacted so very many people in his brief time here on Earth. Whether you needed an ally, someone to move all your heavy stuff, a second chance, a friendly voice, or just his comforting presence; he was always there. His commitments to Fatherhood and Friendship are unparalleled by most. We could write a million more words and still not capture all the wonderful things about him, so, we will just say this: We will never be the same without you, thank you for being our big tough Teddy Bear. You are so loved. <br /> <br /> Trent is survived by his children, Raynee Mae and Randall Jakob, His Father Randy (Beverly) Powers, His Grandmother Bartholomew, his brothers Chase Powers (Jessi) and Chris Anderton (Mini), his sisters Taleesa and Shannon (Sam), 4 nieces and 4 nephews and many, many, friends. <br /> Preceded in death by his mother, Jolynn (Gary) and Grandparents Powers and Grandfather Bartholomew. <br /> <br /> An Open House style Celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, June 27th, 2020 at 1956 Brandon Park Place Sandy, UT 84092 from 1pm-5pm. In lieu of flowers, since he had stated they made him feel like a sissy, Trent would appreciate cheering on his favorite teams on his behalf, always.

    In a lifetime people come in to ours and create an intangible bond that can never be broken. Trent was absolutely this person-this wonderful human being that I connected with and grew close to as if we were born siblings. Although, not by blood, he was and always will be my big brother. Trent is a once in a lifetime friend that would humbly give you a place to eat, sleep, and share joy with in his home. He was so kind and loving to my girls and always made family his number one priority. I am going to miss my friend immensely. Rest easy, Trent. Thank you for being a part of our lives-it wont be the same with out you.

    I remember when we were at the hospital having our daughter and he was the proudest daddy ever! She was so little and while he held her he was so gentle. His kids were the world to him and did everything he could to make sure they were taken care of. He had the biggest heart ever and even though we weren’t together he was always there to help if I needed him. He is going to be missed like crazy by so many.
