ALTO PASS - Steven Eugene Trexler, 67, of Hemphill, Texas, formally of Alto Pass, passed away Thursday, March 14, 2019 at his home in the Six Mile Community.

He enjoyed playing his guitar and singing at church and he loved riding horses. His grandchildren were his pride and joy and he enjoyed fishing and hunting with his children. As a hobby, he made knives, ink pens, and walking canes (most of which he gave away). Going out to eat with his friends was another of his most loved things to do.

Gordon Parrish and wife, Debbie, of North Pole, Alaska; Tad and Lori Parrish of Cobden, Illinois, Sheila and Rodney Dame of Herrin, Illinois and Jeanie Shelnutt of Hemphill, Texas; uncle, Dewey Gibson; aunts, Sharon Schaefer and Pat Bryant; friend of 50 years, Doc Lovell of Sikeston, Missouri; and five grandchildren, Archelle Trexler, Brandon Davis, Samuel, Tabitha, and Georgia Witzman.



He was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Bonnie Trexler; brother, David Trexler; in-laws, Archille and Bonnie Parrish; and best friend of 50 years, Roger Moss.
