Trent was promoted to his heavenly home on January 7, 2021, at the age of 56, to be with his grandparents, great-grandparents, Godparents (Mark’s parents), his dad and others who have gone before him.
Trent is survived by his mother, Charlotte Eidlin, and stepfather Mike Eidlin of Port Ludlow, Washington; brothers Sheldon McCarthy of Austin, Texas, and Trevor Carbaugh; his son, Travis Carbaugh; grandson Tael Carbaugh; and nephew Taven Carbaugh, all of Anchorage, Alaska; his wife, Pam Carbaugh of Fredericksburg, Texas; and step-daughters Lilia Lindquist of Fairbanks, Alaska, and Olivia Lindquist of Fredericksburg.
Trent has spent most of his life living in Alaska as his parents moved there in 1974. Trent was an active athlete. To this day he holds the award for the 100-yard dash from his elementary school in Scott City, Missouri. He also was an avid cross country skier and a star quarterback through his school years in Fairbanks, Alaska.
Trent received a degree in petroleum engineering from the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. He then spent a few years working for MarkAir as the manager of fuel quality and supply. His next position was with Petro Star as director of marketing. Petro Star is the only Alaskan-owned refining and distribution company. Trent left Petro Star to start his own successful company Global Fuel. Concurrently, Trent served as general manager of the Anchorage Fueling and Service Company (AFSC), which provides fueling services for its 18 member airlines at the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.
He loved living in Alaska and enjoyed hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and spending time at his house in Big Lake. Previously, he served on the board of directors for the Iron Dog, the world’s longest and toughest snowmobile race that traverses more than 2,600 miles across the Alaskan backcountry. He also spent several years volunteering on the board of directors for Ducks Unlimited-Alaska Chapter. He had a passion for racing, owning and managing a winning snowmobiling race team (Global Motorsports).
Trent was an excellent chef and loved to entertain family, friends and others, both at his homes in Big Lake (Alaska) and Cordillera Ranch (Boerne, Texas). Trent thoroughly enjoyed sharing the beauty of the great state of Alaska with family, friends and business associates by taking them on various once-in-a-lifetime trips.
Trent was loved by many for his kind heart, his adventurous spirit, his outgoing, bigger-than-life personality and his generosity.
