Funeral service held for Romulus man killed in California shooting

A funeral service was held Thursday morning for 25-year-old Trevor Irby. He was one of the victims of the California Garlic Festival shooting.

Tally McDonald said goodbye to a lifelong friend Thursday, one that she has known since she was four. That friend, is Trevor Irby. They both grew up in Romulus, and went to college together.

Tally spoke at his funeral at RomulusCentral School’s auditorium this morning.

“Trevor is someone that it takes nothing to understand the kind of person he was and if you knew Trevor you would know he was an amazing person,” said Tally McDonald.

Trevor has a presence that couldn’t be missed if he was in the room.

“A superstar, he would walk into a room and he would want to beat you in everything there was. Anytime  a competition that was going on and he wanted to dance and sing and have as much fun as he could with everyone that was there and always made everybody feel as though they mattered as well,” said McDonald.

His life can’t help but be missed now that he’s gone.

“Laughed all the time was always smiling, and it just is really so unfortunate that his life was cut short,” said McDonald.
