Trim attended the Caruthersville Schools, graduating in the High School Class of 1974. He was a maintenance worker with Lakeside in Memphis for over 20 years prior to his retirement.

He was a huge St. Louis Cardinals fan and also loved the Memphis Redbirds, Memphis Grizzlies basketball, Memphis Tigers football, Kansas City Chiefs and the St. Louis Blues hockey team. Trim also enjoyed playing golf and watching golf tournaments on television.

Trim had a love for music, especially guitarists, and always wanted to be one. He did play a mean air guitar until buying a real Keith Urban guitar and still has it to this day. He also loved airplanes and flying, the Andy Griffith show (he could even recite all of the episodes by heart), Ford Hot Tamales, and sweets. He loved his family and friends very much and often missed his Missouri friends and family.
