Trenor "Trene" Proctor Fackrell was born in Orderville, Utah, the sixth son of David Bancroft Fackrell and Hannah Proctor Fackrell. His early life was spent in the communal society of the United Order. At an early age, he tended sheep in the hills around Orderville, often accompanied for weeks at a time only by his older brother (who was eleven). He continued to herd sheep for his father after the breakup of the United Order.
His mother died when Trene was thirteen years old and he was cared for by his father's other wife, Susannah. He took an interest in many sports and social activities. He learn to play musical instruments, especially the guitar, and called square dances at the age of ten. In 1898, Trene and other members of the large family moved to Idaho where his older brothers, Parley, Fernando, and Karl had homesteaded and settled in Riverside.
He met his future wife Henrietta Letitia Parsons at a dance in Blackfoot, Idaho. They were married in early January, 1901 in the Logan (Utah) LDS Temple and took a homestead near Thomas, Idaho. Trene was interested in public affairs and was elected County Commissioner for 1913 and 1914. He also served as president of the Farm Bureau at Thomas as well as a member of the Peoples Canal Board and a trustee of the school boards in Thomas and Pingree (where they had moved in 1918). In 1930 they moved to Blackfoot where Trene continued as a successful real estate broker. Trene and Hettie celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in January of 1951. Hettie died in April, 1963, and is buried at Trene's side in the Thomas-Riverside Cemetery.
They were the parents of thirteen children.
