Philip Norbert Trebnik

August 28, 1956 — August 11, 2021

Philip Norbert Trebnik, 64, of Kelso entered into the presence of the Lord Aug. 11, 2021, at Harborview Hospital in Seattle.
He was born Aug. 28, 1956, in Auburn, Wash., to George and Wanda (Meads) Trebnik, and moved from the Seattle area to Clatskanie in the fourth grade. He joined the Boy Scouts and not only earned Eagle Scout, but Order of the Arrow as well. He graduated from Clatskanie High School in 1974 and Northwest Christian College in 1978 with a bachelor’s in Bible and psychology.
Phil married his college sweetheart, Sidney Lane, on July 4, 1982, in Gladstone, Ore. They made their home in the Longview/Kelso area where Phil worked for Longview Fibre for 34 years, first as a papermaker and eventually as an electrician. He retired in 2013.
Phil enjoyed hunting, fishing, gun trading, hanging out with his hunting dogs, and leading a men’s group Bible study at the Living Word Christian Center. He had a quick wit, and the gift of rhyme. Phil was loyal, genuine, honest, and rarely showed anger. He was a man after God’s heart.
He is survived by his wife of 39 years, Sidney Trebnik at home with his dog, Danner; a sister, Patricia (Ken) Plandel of De Beque, Colo.; and two nephews and their families, Kelly Plandel of Toledo, Wash., and Kris Plandel of St. Augustine, Fla.; and Sidney’s large extended family.
A memorial service is planned for 10 a.m. Aug. 28 at Calvary Community Church in Longview where he was a member. Philip’s ashes will be scattered at one of his favorite fishing holes on the Columbia River.
Any memorials or contributions in his name may be given to the Calvary Community Church Youth Camp scholarship fund.
Final arrangements were by Steele Chapel & Longview Memorial Park.
