On the evening of July 12th, 2017, Travis was driving home from work when he experienced car trouble. He pulled over onto the highway shoulder, and a truck hit the back of Travis' car, resulting in his death at the scene.
Travis was truly a kind and generous person. His tragic death has left behind many grieving friends and family members, including his high school sweetheart Steph. Steph is a full-time nursing student at the University of Minnesota and is set to graduate this upcoming year. This untimely accident has created many unexpected challenges, and it is the hope to raise $10,000 to support Steph during this time. Please continue to keep the Krautkremer and Hardel families in your thoughts and prayers.
