Trevor John Kurtzhals, 29 of Lexington passed away Saturday, May, 4, 2019 in Broken Bow, during a training exercise with Nebraska Army National Guard.
Trevor was born February 7, 1990 in Ord, Nebraska to Terry and Catherine (Achen) Kurtzhals. He attended school in Loup City and graduated from Loup City High school with the class of 2008. After high school he enlisted in the Nebraska Army National Guard. He proudly served his country for over eleven years and had been deployed to Afghanistan in 2010. At the time of his death he was a Staff Sargent with the 1075thTransportation Company.
In April of 2014 he moved to Lexington where he began his employment at Platte Valley Auto Mart. On September 12, 2015 he was united in marriage to Abigail Booth in Lexington. Three children were blessed to this marriage; Skylar, Swayzee and Cutler, the loves of his life.
Trevor loved spending time with his children and family. He loved being at the lake, working in the yard, fishing, traveling, Nebraska Football, and driving his beloved Trooper-anything with a motor was at the top of his list.
Trevor’s three focuses in his life were his family & friends, the military, and selling cars. He gave each of them every part of who he was. Trevor met everyone with a smile, a sense of confidence, and love. He didn’t know a stranger to this world, and made time for everyone. He loved people-to an unmeasurable amount, and was on this Earth to serve. His family, customers, and his country-and he did just that-serve. He was always around to “shoot the shit” and have a drink. He was the light in so many lives and one of a kind. His death has left a void in the lives of all who knew him-that will never be filled.
Survivors include: his wife Abby; two sons, Skylar and Cutler and his daughter, Swayzee
