Born on April 1, 1998 in Hawaii, Tre' Evans-Dumaran lived his 24 years on this earth with tenacity, genuine kindness, and the desire to make his community better everyday. Known as a scholar athlete, Tre' loved to learn in every aspect of his life. He made his mom proud through his academics. He challenged himself and received a gold medal in the state 110 hurdles. Tre's dream was to become a pilot one day, and he worked towards that goal by finding jobs near aircrafts to earn money for flight school. He used his skills fixing helicopters and applied them to fix his own car as well as others' vehicles. His desire to give back to his community led him to becoming a Fire Fighter for the County of Maui where he was surrounded with a crew that he genuinely enjoyed working with in a field that protected our community. His final day was a call for help from Maui county to remove debris and create a safer water flow for the residents of Kihei, Maui. That day, he was swept into the ocean for approximately 800 yards through a storm drain. His crew and fellow first responders worked hard to resuscitate him and got him to the hospital. He fought alongside a dedicated medical team at Maui Memorial Hospital, until it was his time to leave this earth.
