Treven Brazier Obituary, Death – Treven Degn Brazier (T-Ball) died Following a long battle with mental illness and depression on January 2, 2023. Treven was born on New Year’s Eve, 2002, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to Sarah Degn Gordon and Raymond Bud Brazier. Treven was born with the most gorgeous round head, resembling a “ball.” So he was always “T-ball,” and many people only knew him as such. With his huge smile, beautiful eyes, and cheerful demeanor, he was a friend to everyone who met him. He was always on the lookout for anyone who needed a friend. Even those he competed against in sports considered him a buddy.
Treven was always the ball carrier; basketball, ping pong, pickleball, football, baseball, in fact, Treven was a natural and excelled at any sport he played. He liked working out and staying active, fishing, video games, and nerf gun wars, and he was always up for an adventure with his large group of friends and siblings. Track rapidly became his favorite of the many activities he enjoyed, and running hurdles became his true passion. He was stunning to witness, with power and speed that defied explanation. His grin was never wider than when he took first place in an event. He won three state hurdles and sprints titles. He also qualified for the Junior Olympics. He worked hard to save enough money to become a member of Gold Medal Athletes. He competed and trained at the highest levels possible. At the time of his death, he was a track student at Southern Utah University.
T-Ball earned his Eagle Scout award with the help of his mother and outstanding leaders, and he was always proud of his achievement.Treven was devoted to his Savior and the Gospel, and he could be found reading the Book of Mormon on a regular basis. He rarely missed church and had hoped to go on a mission. He was proud of his “Future Missionary” badge even as a child. He was pleased when he received his mission call to serve in the Manchester New Hampshire Mission. T-Ball established a lofty objective of overcoming track and life hurdles, but some proved more tough than others. He learned that overcoming the mental health barrier was practically impossible. We are grateful for His friend, the Savior, and believe that Treven will be restored to health through Him.
His parents, Sarah and Jim Gordon of Huntington, Utah, and his father, Raymond B. Brazier of Hurricane, Utah, survive him, as do countless siblings, nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, cousins, and friends too numerous to name. Treven’s “Grampy,” Ralph G. Degn, predeceased him, and we have no doubt that he, too, received Treven with open arms and pure love as he jumped the final hurdle in this life. Treven’s funeral will be held in the Huntington Stake Center on Monday, January 9, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. Before the service, the family will receive visitors at the stake center on Sunday evening from 5:00-7:00 p.m. and again on Monday morning from 9:00-10:30 a.m. The burial will take place in the Huntington City Cemetery.
