Trey Owens, 27, of Billings, born May 15, 1985, went to heaven peacefully from his home on March 19, 2013. He graduated from Billings Senior High School in 2004, attended MSUB and during the years of 2006 through 2010, he worked as a patient service technician at A.W.A.R.E. Inc., a group home helping challenged youths with their lives, a pursuit for which he had a great passion and love.
During the past 10 years of Trey's life, he continued his ongoing, courageous fight in hopes for a cure for his cancer. His dream throughout this fight was to be able to pursue the musical and writing talents he had been given.
Trey is truly our warrior, hero, poet, musician and philosopher with a passionate love for reading. He found another home in his journey at Off the Leaf, where he spent so much time enjoying coffee and conversation; here, he gave all his spirit, heart and soul to "spreading the love" to each and every person that crossed his path.
Trey inspired us with his unending faith and hope, his open heart, his desire for truth, his joy for life, and, above all, even in the midst of his greatest challenges, the enduring love for all that he never ceased to give.
He is survived by his mother and stepfather, Deb and Jim Raden, his father, Harold (Fred) Owens Jr., sister Samantha Jo Owens, stepsisters Violet Scott and Elizabeth Fadness, all of Billings; his grandparents, Harold F. and Beverly Owens, Absarokee, Mont., Dean and Kay Spiegelberg, Fountain Hills, Ariz., and William A. and Ingrid Martin, Laredo Ranch, Calif.; along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and many friends.
