I just read this. Not sure how i came across your name. Just reminicing about beach district track meets back in the 80's. Even though i won beach and regionals, i was always worried about you beating me. I only met you a track meets, but even at 17, you had class, hard work and determination. Im not sure what happened, but rest in peace my friend,Eddie AntoineGreen Run

Oh my god I'm so sorry I'm just finding out about you my friend. I miss you already. You were a good soul that never hurt anyone and an even better father. I am crushed. Rest in peace Trae.

I had the great pleasure of becoming friends with Trae after meeting him up in Blacksburg back in 1990ish. He was a lovely guy, always full of mischief and fun, but also caring and generous. We used to go biking - sometimes at night! -in (what was then) Seashore State Park and at Waller Mill up near Williamsburg, and we always had a good pool and disc golf rivalry going. I have such fond memories of our friendship and I

Trae was a wonderful neighbor and will be missed by all. He and Clay and Zeus and Bud had many friends at our neighborhood dog park, it won't be the same without him. Rest in peace, my friend.

An unbelievable shock. A great guy who I met over a dozen years ago in my restaurant, The Pancake House & Grill. He would tell me he's having breakfast and then going for a ride or to a race. He was a very kind hearted man who you could see adored his son. He brought Clay in when he was just a baby and we had the pleasure of watching him grow and saw the great interaction between he and Trae. We will truly miss seeing him.

I'm so sad to hear of Trae's passing. I met Trae back in middle school and have many fond memories of him. Trae always went out of his way to be very kind to me, and I'll forever remember him as a very gentle, caring soul. My heart goes out to your family at this very difficult time, sending you much love and prayers...RIP and everyday.
