Trenton Carl Stutheit

February 13, 1988 — April 16, 2017

Trenton Carl Stutheit, son of Mervin and Linda (Douglas) Stutheit, was born February 13, 1988 in Auburn, Nebraska. Trent started school in Falls City, Nebraska, then went to Dawson-Verdon, and back to Falls City, where he graduated from high school. Trent was a three-sport athlete in high school, football, wrestling, and track. He went on to attend and earn his Bachelor’s Degree from The Creative Center in Omaha.

Trent worked at various jobs in Omaha, mostly in food service management. He worked for many years at Famous Dave’s. Most recently Trent was learning the flooring business as a flooring tech.

While working at Famous Dave’s, Trent met a co-worker, Amanda Schulte. A spark was ignited, and together they had a daughter, Annella Pearl. Though they didn’t stay a couple, they remained good friends, and Trent was always a big part of Annella’s life.

In addition to his family, Trent loved the Arts. He enjoyed music, drawing, writing, and building things. He was comfortable outdoors, and loved hiking in the mountains of Colorado, off-roading, and rock-climbing. He also participated in cage fighting.

Trent’s life was taken suddenly on Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017. He passed away at Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha, at the young age of 29 years, 2 months, and 3 days. He was preceded in death by his uncle Rick Haith, his grandparents Bob & Colleen Judd, George Anderson, Richard Douglas, Thomas Portrey, and Betty Blevins, and his great-grandmother Ruby Douglas.
