Trevor J. Williams of Bliss, a graphic artist, outdoorsman and photographer, died Sunday from injuries suffered in an auto accident earlier that day in Holland. He was 21.
Born in Warsaw, he grew up in Bliss and was a 2002 graduate of Letchworth Central School. While attending Genesee Community College in the conservation officer program, he worked as a graphic artist applicator at Signs Plus in Chaffee.
His love of nature was evident at an early age; Mr. Williams raised a champion heifer while involved in 4-H. An avid hunter and fisherman, he also used still and video photography to capture wildlife scenes, having recently returned from such a shoot in New Mexico.
Mr. Williams also raced go-karts at Bliss International Speedway and was a member of the pit crew for his brother Troy's stock car.
A member of the New Beginnings Fellowship Church in Hermitage, his faith led him to a number of missionary trips, including one to Mexico.
Survivors include his father, Dale, and his mother, Cynthia Jacoby, both of Bliss; two brothers, Brady of Trion, Ga., and Troy of Arcade; a sister, Melissa of Bliss; two half-brothers, Raymond Jacoby and Ryan Jacoby, both of Bliss; his grandparents, Ken and Ruth Williams of Amherst, and Glen and Laura Vandercook of Caro, Mich.; and a special friend, Diana Bockhahn of Chaffee.
Services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday in New Beginnings Fellowship Church in Hermitage. Burial will be in Wethersfield Cemetery, Smith Corners.
