Charles Henry Borchers III “Trey”


Charles Henry Borchers III, “Trey”, passed away on Thursday, January 9, 2020 in Lawrence, Kansas at the age of 31. 

Trey was born to Charles Henry Borchers Jr and Pamela Jo Schubert on April 1, 1988 in Kansas City, Missouri. His childhood was spent in Prairie Village, KS and Lenexa, KS. He graduated from Shawnee Mission East High School in 2006. As an adult, Trey moved to Lawrence, KS where he worked at Free State Brewery and then on to his dream job at Black Stag Brewery as the Front House Manager. This job brought him both great joy and pride. He met lifelong, amazing friends at these establishments and talked often about how happy he was in Lawrence. It was also there that Trey brought home his other love, a doberman named Adelaide “Addie”. Together, they enjoyed many days outdoors in the sun. They hiked trails, went to dog parks, visited the local breweries and other establishments. Most places that Trey went, Addie was by his side. 

Trey is survived by his father Chuck Borchers; his mother Pamela Schubert; his stepfather Jim Larson; his sister Victoria Borchers-Roche, her husband Kevin Roche, and their children Hallie, Cora and Raelyn; his brothers Angelo Borchers, August Borchers, and Rex Larson; his sister Fallon Torrez, her husband Louis and their children, Dez and Savannah; his paternal grandparents Chuck and Elaine Borchers; his maternal grandparents Rex and Frances Schubert.  Along with multiple aunts and uncles, numerous cousins, many other family members, and countless friends.


A Celebration of Life will be held on February 9, 2020, 1pm at Black Stag Brewery, 623 Massachusetts St, Lawrence, KS 66044. Cremation services and Funeral Director services were provided by Cremation Center of Kansas City. A very special thank you to Lucy DeWitt for all of her help and support.

    There are no words that can adequately express our deep sorrow to family and friends of Trey. It is with great difficulty that we will get through the immediate impact of his loss. As the parents of one of Treys boyhood Johnson County friends Trey and our son grew close and we experienced first hand Treys orneriness, his great sense of humor and humility, and a driven desire to find his right path for future happiness and success. What a great kid and friend to our son. We watched them both grow to be the good men they were destined to become. Trey will be missed but his spirit will be in our hearts. We are comforted by knowing that all of those close friendships whose paths crossed his are most fortunate for that all too brief connection.

    We wish you peace during this time and our heart felt thoughts to give you strength.

    Deb and Gil Pintar

    There are some things that happen we cannot explain. This has been the most heartbreaking news. Trey was a good man with a big heart. He was cute and mischievous in his ways and I know he is missed. He made everyone feel important. I pray for your strength and courage to cope with this loss. You are in my prayers and hope you receive the peace you seek as you struggle to deal with the pain of his loss.
