TRENT DAVIS, 39, of Ogallala, passed away April 23, 2022, at his home in Ogallala.
Trent was born May 17, 1982, at North Platte, Nebraska, to Leonard and Connie (Simpson) Davis. He attended Hershey High School before graduating from Sutherland High School with the class of 2000.
Trent attended New Mexico State University at Las Cruces for a year before transferring to the US Golf Academy at Chandler, AZ. Trent went on to work as the assistant golf pro at the Dismal River Golf Club. From there, Trent went to work at the Pinehurst Golf Course in North Carolina. After a few years, he returned to Nebraska, driven by the desire to be close to family. While in Nebraska, Trent worked at the Ethanol plants at both Sutherland and Madrid. Trent eventually took a position with Simon Contractors and, later, Paulsen Inc.

His world revolved around his child and family, who always brightened his life. Trent loved the water and did a lot of jet skiing after moving to Ogallala. Trent also loved to cook and sing.
Trent was preceded in death by his grandparents, Benny Simpson and Leonard (Jo) Davis.
