Richard Franklin "Trey" Crites III
(1972 - 2012)

Richard Franklin "Trey" Crites III of Garland, Texas passed away on Monday, November 19, 2012 in California unexpectedly during a business trip. Trey was born September 27, 1972 to Richard and Hazel Crites in Dallas Texas. Growing up primarily in the small East Texas town of Big Sandy, Trey graduated from South Garland High School in 1991 and ITT Technical Institute in 1994.
Trey was living his dream and enjoying life as an independent semi-truck operator for K Truck Lines, Inc. The family wishes to thank his friends for all the kind words of support and for loving him in this life that was all too short.
For those who knew Trey, you know that he would not want tears of sadness to mark this occasion. Always quick with a line or comeback, Trey would prefer a celebration of life and laughter recalling memories of days past. In his honor, a celebration of Trey's life will be hosted by the family pending final arrangements.
Please feel free to leave messages and memories on the "Treyo Critez" Facebook page and as arrangements are finalized they will be shared on the same. Donations in Trey's memory may be made to Baylor Health Care System Foundation at 3600 Gaston Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75246.
While Trey was preceded in death by his birth parents, Richard and Hazel Crites, he was survived by his partner in life, Valerie Bromberg; mother Mary Lee Crites Norman and father, James Norman; brothers Jim, Ricky and David Norman; sister Margie Norman Oliver; and numerous aunts, nieces, nephews and extended family.
