Obituary of Trevor A. Finamore

Trevor Anthony Finamore, 29, of Howell passed away on Saturday April 25, 2020 at home surrounded by his loving family after fighting a long and courageous battle against Osteosarcoma. He was born on August 9th, 1990 at Jersey Shore Hospital and was a lifelong resident of Howell. Trevor attended Howell High School and graduated as part of the Class of 2009. He then went on to attend Brookdale Community College, Rutgers University, and Montclair State University, where he obtained a Bachelor’s Degree and ultimately his Master’s Degree in both Physical Education and Special Education. Trevor played basketball, soccer, and baseball. As owner/operator of Shore To Please Ice Cream, Trevor spent numerous summers on Long Beach Island serving ice cream from his polka-dot truck. Trevor was immensely passionate about classic cars and motorcycles and loved working on and restoring them in his spare time. The only thing that rivaled his love for his family, his fiancée, and anything with a motor was his diehard devotion to the New Jersey Devils.

Trevor will be remembered most for his radiant smile, famous bear hugs, and his infectious laugh. He was known to countless people for his genuine, selfless and beautiful soul. To know Trevor was to love him.
