Bass Fishermen Can Win Big In Trey Burford Tournament
Those who knew Trey Burford loved him unconditionally, so his passing left an incredible hole in the hearts of all his friends and family.
His obituary tells the story better than I ever could:
Trey loved his family, friends, work and all things outdoors. He was an avid hunter and fisherman and truly enjoyed his many adventures, both at home and on trips to various hunting and fishing camps. A forest, lake, river, field or mountain were like glimpses of heaven to him. Many a story was shared over the smoke of the barbeque grill or fish fryer.
Instead of spending years with darkness and regret, those friends and family elected to continue to shine his light even after his passing with the Trey Burford Memorial Bass Tournament.
