CO-WORKER AND FRIEND: TREVOR GETZ OCT 23, 1950 – June 21, 2011
Trevor Getz, October 23, 1950 – June 21, 2011: Co-Worker and Friend
As many of you know, this past week was an emotional one. We lost a true and trusted friend and co-worker. Trevor came to the Region in 1994. He brought with him a wealth of experience from the travel and event planning world. Our events and conferences enjoyed an immediate upgrade in quality at that time. He laid the groundwork to the success we have today in all our special events.
He learned the real estate franchise business and applied a tremendous dedication and desire to be the best he could be in the support of our offices and membership. In doing so Trevor gained everyone’s respect and admiration.
He truly excelled as a conference Master of Ceremonies. Trevor had a natural ability to get up on stage and effortlessly put everyone at ease, keeping the audience engaged with humour and poise. He had a knack at taking what could be an awkward or negative situation and turn it around to be a positive moment.
I can also tell you that he was absolutely fanatical about quality and timing. Our speakers had to be the best available and we as regional staff had to keep within our allotted presentation times or face his wrath. He truly taught us the importance of timing.
Beyond work, his passion was his family, friends and sports. He doted on his 3 daughters and was a devoted grandfather. And of course GOLF. Golf for most is a challenge and a passion. For Trevor golf was beyond that; he truly appreciated the game and loved every nuance it brought to him.
It was a true privilege and an honour to have had the opportunity to work with Trevor. He will be best remembered at work for his passion, his creativity and his skill; by his friends for his loyalty and humour; and by his family for his love and devotion.
Trevor, you will be remembered forever and are already being deeply missed.
