20-year-old Emeryville resident and Ex’pression student Trevor Holminski, who was mysteriously killed last weekend in Plumas County, was remembered by his parents in a Contra Costa Times article posted this week. Allyson Holminski described Trevor as a kind and insightful young man, who loved nature. “He loved life, he was so excited about the future … I will miss him forever, and probably beyond that.”
