William "Trey" Louis Bellows, III

February 11, 1988 ~ November 18, 2021 (age 33)


William "Trey" Louis Bellows entered his heavenly home on November 18, 2021, after a courageous 5 ½ year battle with brain cancer, which included 22 months of oral chemotherapy, multiple rounds of radiation, and six rounds of chemotherapy infusions.

Trey was born February 11, 1988, to Bill and Sallie Bellows of Summerfield, North Carolina. He was a 2006 graduate of Northwest High School and a 2010 graduate of Western Carolina. Trey would be the first to tell you his life really took off in 2012 when he met his bride Marley, and “things forever changed”.

According to Trey’s timeline, life was challenging after his June 2016 diagnosis, but so sweet after he married the love of his life later that year. "My favorite thing about Marley is her attitude--in a good way,” he laughed. “She helps me to stay positive because the best things in life are her and Colbie.”

“Then, in 2019, Colbie came along and things got even better. She has brought so much joy into my life,” Trey recalled about the birth of his daughter, Colbie Joan. “Colbie is like a flower. She grew so quickly. She started as a tiny bud and blossomed so fast. She’s so smart.”

“More than anything, my last goal is for Marley and Colbie to know that they are so very important in my life and I want them to be happy”.

Trey is loved incredibly well by so many people because he first loved all of us. He never met a stranger and was the first to entertain a friend with the how-to’s of home-brewing or details of his other favorite pastime: restoring his grandfather Chief’s 1966 Plymouth Valiant and playing disc golf. Trey and Marley’s home was always a hub of love, generosity, and a place for Strawberry Road Boy’s gatherings.

Trey is survived by his faithful wife Marley and adoring daughter Colbie; his parents Bill and Sallie Bellows of Summerfield; his in-laws Charles and Kathy Poston of Jamestown; Grandmother Joan Bellows of Asheville; his siblings Brigid Roman and husband Jorge of Lexington, Sadie Hammond and husband Phillip of Brown Summit, Cora Bellows and Dahne Bellows of Summerfield, Page and husband Ryan Gleeson of High Point, and Cal Poston of Jamestown; nephews Jesse, Leevi, Georgie, Lucas, and nieces Shelby, Lauren, Lydia, Evie and Alice; a multitude of aunts, uncles, and cousins; and his lifelong friends including the Strawberry Road Boys who have always held a special place in his heart.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, December 4th, 2021 from 12:00-4:00 PM at The Gardens at Grey Gables located at 4105 Oak Ridge Road, Summerfield, NC 27358.
