In Memory of Trevor Durow
Trevor passed away in September following a long illness. He was born in Mapperley to Gordon & Muriel.
He had a sister Helen and a brother Brian. The Durow family can be traced back in Mapperley from 1771 and there have now been 8 generations living here.
His Mum and Dad both played a big part in the church and the community of Mapperley.
Muriel came to Mapperley in 1945. Her father was the vicar here for six years. Reverend Vaughan, Vicar of Mapperley 1945 – 1951.
Both Muriel and Gordon were in the church choir, Muriel was secretary to the church council and Gordon was the verger.
His sister Helen still lives in the family home in Mapperley with her husband Kevin and children Laura and Bethany. His brother Brian also lives in Mapperley with his family Lewis and Abbie.
Trev had many, many friends and of course so many of them from Mapperley who he grew up with and remained in contact with over the years.
A brave man, a kind and friendly man who always gave a warm welcome and a ready smile. His laugh was infectious and you always felt better for being in his company.
Mapperley won’t forget you Trevor
Rest in Peace
