Marvin E. “Trey” Music, III, 54, passed away in the early afternoon of Monday, June 29, 2020. Trey was born to Marvin and Ella (Phillips) Music on April 5, 1966 in Prestonsburg, Kentucky.
Trey worked as a greenhouse attendant for 22 years at Mountain Comp Care Greenhouse. He was a past member of First Presbyterian Church in Prestonsburg, Kentucky.
Trey absolutely loved his family and friends and so enjoyed going to McDonald’s and getting a Big Mac. His favorite thing in the entire world was to celebrate his birthday. Every day of the year, he was talking about his birthday on April 5th. He loved singing patriotic songs, dancing, puzzles, and drawing. Trey brought great joy and light to all who knew him.
Trey is survived by his father, Marvin Music; brother, Brent (Jamie) Music; sister, Tia (John) Anderson, as well as his nieces & nephews, Alauna, Grant, and Shane Anderson, and Darby and Lauren Music. Trey was preceded in death by his mother, Ella Music.

We are so sorry to hear of Trey's passing. He was such a sweet caring boy. When we lived on Arnold Ave., he would come in our backyard gate looking for Tommy to play with. All the boys would get together in their side yard and play football. Trey always got to score. He enjoyed working at the Green house with friends. His sweet smile will be truly missed.

I knew Trey well as his pastor from l979-1993. Those were his teen years and early twenties. He brought joy to everyone, and the church family at the Presbyterian Church honored him with special devotion and love. His mother (Ella Faye) who passed recently was a strong, faithful, and joyful Christian--always dedicated to his care but also a light to all who knew her. Father Marvin (and his parents) also cared deeply for Trey, and recognized he was a special "angel" to us all, despite his limitations. He added so much to our Church community, and to all in the community touched by his life. May we all be as faithful to the gifts God has given us, whether many or small. He used his gifts to encourage and enrich us--Thanks be to God!

Your family is in my prayers. I went to EKU with Ella and she was a good friend. I knew she was marrying Marvin Music and I was marrying as soon as I graduated. So we spent many hours discussing our weddings. This has to be the Ella I knew who was the mother of Trey. I was sorry to see that she died earlier. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Trey was a very special person. Just like his family, he was loving, caring, and fun. His smile was infectious and brought sunshine to those around him. We'll never forget him.
My favorite memory of Trey was that is favorite part of his Christmas with us was singing Christmas songS with mom playing the piano and Trey wanting Jingle Bells and winter wonderland. There are more but my favorite
Trey brought so much joy to my life from always counting on him to be the best singer at Christmas time to the genuine smile he always gave you when he saw you. Thank you for being a light in my life!
