Friends tell us that Trent was certainly full of life and spent his time doing what he loved.
That included spending time with the Strasburg Fire Department.
A few months back, they named Trent the Honorary Fire Chief and today, they gave him a fireman's burial.
"We kind of took him on as a family member. Then we met him... when he came back from Johns Hopkins, we met Trent and gave him a parade into town. From there, it skyrocketed," said Deputy Chief Strasburg Fire Department, Jeff Wharton.
Trent Williams loved fire trucks.
Before he was laid to rest, he went on his last ride.
Just a few months ago, this little boy received a big title from the Strasburg Fire Department. Honorary Fire Chief.
"We thought about just giving him something that could be his and his personally," said firefighter Austin Cucciardo.
"We treated him as a member, as a brother, and it's pretty much a small token of what we could do for him," said Captain of the Rescue Squad, David Hupp.
And after his death, they also named his favorite fire truck, Truck 51, in memory of him.
These firefighters say it's the least they can do. They're considered some of our bravest, yet they say that Trent is the brave one.
"His battle with cancer was a whole lot harder. We train for this stuff, there's no training for that. It's a whole lot different," said Cucciardo.
And he's inspired them to fight as hard as they can and to never give up.
"With that courage, it made him stand out," said Deputy Chief Wharton.
"He's a bigger warrior, a bigger hero than all of us. And we all look up to him," said Hupp.
Firefighters will wear black bands over their badges and display black banners as their station for 30 days in memory of their Honorary Fire Chief.
