Vincent Michael Trebus
Vincent Michael Trebus found peaceful, anointed rest at Evelyn’s House in Creve Coeur, Missouri on July 7, 2020. Born October 11, 1956, Vince was a St. Louis boy through and through–alumnus of St. Casimir, Rosary High, and Columbia University in New York. He grew up a star athlete, a prankster and protector of his cherished siblings, an avid outdoorsman, chef, fixer-upper, gardener, and sports fan. Vince was a devoted father, uncle, brother, and son, and was renowned as a compassionate oncology nurse. His career as an RN led him to serve selflessly and dutifully for 26 years, giving his patients warm care and the same deep love he showed his own family. He changed and saved lives at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Anthony’s, and Siteman Cancer Center.
Vince is survived by treasured daughter, Alicia, and son-in-law, Marty; his dear mother, Rita; beloved siblings, Steve, Danielle, Paul, Tom, Rob, Rich, and Mary, and their spouses and children. He joins his father, Charles, in heavenly rest. A memorial mass and private family reception are to be determined in summer 2021, following a lifting of travel and gathering restrictions. In the interim, please celebrate his life by visiting and nurturing the sick, donating blood, lighting votive candles and offering prayers, and regularly telling your loved ones what they mean to you.
