Trevor Seever

April 24, 1991 – December 29, 2020

San Jose State Graduate

Modesto, California – Trevor Seever passed away unexpectedly on December 29, 2020. Trevor was born on April 24, 1991 to David and Darlene Seever in Modesto. After graduating from Davis High School in 2009, he attended San Jose State University, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in health and science in 2019. He was aspiring to become a physical education teacher. Trevor was an avid sports enthusiast, but that was surpassed by his love for refereeing and umping, football, basketball and baseball. He had a passion for reffing high school sports in the Modesto area for the past 10 years. Trevor joined the Northern California Officials Association South as a football official in 2011 and for baseball in 2017. His knowledge of football was unparalleled to most his age, receiving a section title final game, which less than 10% of officials receive. Trevor had a great love for his family, which was equaled by his love of his dog of 8 years, “Cookie”. He made an impact on everyone he met, and his passion for every endeavor he took on in his life will be sorely missed. We love you and miss you, Trevor.


Trevor leaves behind his parents, David Seever and Ray and Darlene Ruiz, his siblings, Kyle Seever, Allison Seever, Shaylea Seever and Leland Seever. Trevor also leaves behind his grandparents, Dixie Prather and Donna Seever. Trevor is preceded in death by his grandfathers, Bob Seever, Bill Prather and Tim Boot.
