Born May 1, 1939, he grew up in Shingle Springs, where he lived on the Watkins Ranch with his parents Archie and Iona Watkins and his brother Norman. He attended the Little Red Schoolhouse on French Creek Road, was involved in 4H and Future Farmers of America, graduated from El Dorado High School and attended Sierra College.

In addition to his loving wife, Trevor is survived by his children, Barbara Snyder (James), Judi Douglas (Daniel), Dustin Watkins (Nicalee) and Christopher Watkins; brother, Norman Watkins; 12 grandchildren; and three nieces. He was a ray of sunshine to all who knew him. No services are planned in Placerville.
