Art Trenkle
Art Trenkle
President of Fairway Floor

It is with heavy heart and deep sadness that we announce that owner and founder of Fairway Floor, Art Trenkle, passed away May 24, 2017 from the effects of acute leukemia.

The Fairway Floor team has suffered a great loss with the passing of Art and we are very appreciative of all the support and kindness shown over the last few months.

Art leaves a professional and personal legacy that is not bound by time or physical space. He was active in the floor covering business since 1956. Beginning as a carpet installer in New York, he went on to work in all phases of the floor covering industry.  Upon seeing the need for a full service flooring company in North Idaho, which could provide its customers the best product, service and pricing he opened Fairway Floor in May of 1994. Leading with integrity Art built a great place to work making a permanent mark on the hearts of all who knew him. We miss him greatly.

Art was incredibly proud of Fairway Floor and all of its employees. He was a cherished friend, a mentor, a leader, husband and father. Art’s goal for Fairway Floor was to provide the best possible floor covering service and experience to residential and commercial customers. His goals and spirit will live on in the organization he built and the inspiration he has provided many of us.
 
The Fairway Floor team will rise to the challenge of this difficult time.  As an experienced, extremely dedicated group, we are committed to serving customers with the same great service customers have relied on over the years.
