Years later, he pursued his dream in becoming a business owner when he opened Freeway Automotive in 2005.

In his free time, Chris loved to travel and spend time with his family, especially his three daughters. He spent many hours in the kitchen cooking meals without following recipes and could always be found wherever there was live music. He spent every Saturday during football season tailgating and cheering for the NC State Wolfpack and he loved to hang out and play cribbage with his friends at the Elks Lodge where he was a member. He enjoyed volunteering with the Rockingham County Backpack Program and The Salvation Army Angel Tree.

He is preceded in death by parents Elton and Frances “Plum” Trent. He is survived by wife Andrea and daughters Taylor, Kathryn and Christyn; brother Elton and wife, Sallie, and brother Alston; nieces, Sarah Alston Berry and Francie Trent.

To the BEST dad in the WORLD…Who lived life to the fullest and loved unconditionally. You truly showed me how to be yourself and not care what anyone thinks but also to care so deeply for others and shower them with love. You are my best friend and will continue to be…forever. I am still at a loss for words but I continue to live day by day knowing you'll be in my heart and mind FOREVER. You led me a wonderful life and I'm going to continue to make you proud. What I would do to get one last "Kapish" I love you, I love you, I love you…SOOOO MUCH. ๐Ÿ’š I am living for you now. ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Chris was a dear friend of mine. We made trips to New Hampshire and Reno Nevada and I really enjoyed seeing him dancing with Taylor in Virginia City NV a few years as re back. He really enjoyed LIFE and will be missed by all. Rest in Peace Chris.
