Obituary for Trevor Viljoen

Trevor Viljoen
Trevor Alan Viljoen passed away March 13, 2016 in Oklahoma City after a long illness. Funeral services will be held 2:00, Wednesday March 16, 2016 at Strode Funeral Home Chapel in Stillwater, with internment at Fairlawn Cemetery, The Reverend Calvin Miller, of Mt. Zion Baptist Church, will be officiating. Strode Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to: OSU Foundation, C/O Trevor Viljoen Memorial Cowboy Track & Cross Country Fund, 400 S. Monroe Street, Stillwater, OK 74078.

He was born May 1, 1953 to William and Elizabeth Viljoen in Johannesburg, South Africa. Trevor, recruited to Oklahoma State University by Coach Ralph Tate, came to the US on a track scholarship in 1972. He ran track and cross-country for Odessa Junior College and OSU, winning the 2-mile indoor and 3-mile outdoor Big 8 championships for the Cowboys. Trevor loved his time at Odessa and OSU where he received his bachelor and masters degree in engineering. He loved learning and, while employed by Raytheon Corporation, earned a masters degree in Systems Engineering from Southern Methodist University. He had a strong work ethic in all he pursued; always going above and beyond what was required of him. He passed his work ethic on to his children; his favorite sayings for his children included, “no pain, no gain” and “Think Big and your deeds will grow. Think small and you’ll fall behind. Think that you can and you will. It’s all in the state of the mind.” One of his greatest joys as an engineer was a trip to the South Pole where he conducted an energy audit for Raytheon Corporation and presented his findings to the National Science Foundation.

Trevor was preceded in death by his parents, William and Elizabeth Viljoen. He is survived by his wife Karen; sons, Trevor Alan Viljoen II, of Oklahoma City; Derek Viljoen, wife Courtney of Edmond; Sasha Kakabadse, fiancé Carrie Stickel of Chicago; Stephen Viljoen, wife Annie of Edmond; daughter Lauren Viljoen of Norman; sister Lorna Thome, husband Andre of Durban, South Africa; brother Brian, wife Noreen of Pretoria, South Africa; and brother Mark, wife Debbie of Aiken, South Carolina; and numerous nephews and nieces.
