NEW CREEK, WV – Mark Allen Trenter, 58, of New Creek went to be with his Father in Heaven on Wednesday, November 4, 2020 after battling a rare cancer.

Mark was a 1980 graduate of Keyser High School and loved the game of basketball where he was awarded the Basketball MVP his senior year. He then went on to play basketball for Allegany Community College and the University of Coastal Carolina, Myrtle Beach.
Mark was a humble and faithful servant of God, always happy and willing to lend a hand. He was a long-time member of the Keyser Presbyterian Church, where he served as a Deacon, Elder, Worship Committee Chair and Property Chair. He also attended Rees Chapel United Methodist Church in New Creek. He worked at the WVDOT in Burlington for 24 years, winning several awards, as a DOH Inspector in all phases of roadwork construction. He owned and operated his own business, Trenter Concrete Construction Company, which he took great pride in his workmanship and the ability to provide satisfaction to every concrete job. Mark had a sense of humor and he loved to laugh.
