Travis was everything to his partner of 23 years Christy Blauvelt and his son Damon Heiss...his mini me. Travis lived his life to the fullest and he made sure those that he cared for were well taken care of. Travis was a very strong person but to those who truely knew him he was a gentle giant with a devotion to his life partner Christy and son Damon that never wavered in any storm. He was her partner, best friend and soul mate beyond words. To his friends he had a compassion and loyalty that has lasted a lifetime. Travis had the abilities to see the truth through the fog no matter the subject or person. For those who met him knew that for starters, if he ever returned your call, you were special!
Travis hated voicemail, text and social media. Ironically, we are posting this page to social media to help support a family suddenly and tragically left behind without a father, son, brother, wife and many friends, far and wide. I can hear him now, in his deep forceful commanding voice saying, NO! You can hear it too, can’t you? When he would walk into a room you didnt need to look.......you could feel his presence before he spoke a word.
Travis is forever part of anyone and everyone that ever met him. He was tough but kind, smart and resourceful, and determined. He loved his family and his friends and would fiercely defend an opinion, even when he was wrong, but he was usually right. In the end no matter what was said you knew he still had your back!!
Its time for us to honor his memory and make certain, that the ones closest to him are taken care of, as he would have done for us. I hope you will join me in making whatever donation you can to ensure that his final expenses are taken care of and that Damon and Christy can mourn without too much worry as they try and come to terms with this loss and figure out a future without him.
