Early in life Travis was a funny guy. He was a prankster, a wild spirit. At an unfortunately young age Travis and his siblings lost their father, which made their lives take an unimaginable turn, residential schools. This took a detrimental toll on Travis. He would mention that he went to one but you would never hear much more about it. The watery eyes he beheld just with the thought of it, spoke volumes. 

Travis was always a hard worker, he had such a heart for concrete. He laid most of the foundation in the lower mainland of British Columbia's concrete jungle. Any given day driving with him around the city you couldn't go further than 2 blocks without him pointing out yet another foundation he had paved personally. His hands helped build that city. He trained many people in the industry who are forever grateful for learning from a man so wonderfully educated and passionate in the industry. He was nominated 2nd best concrete man in Canada. What an accomplishment. Apart from his working passion, Travis was a very family oriented man. Even though later in life he wasn’t around his core family as much as he wished you would never know, he always managed to know what was going on in their lives, making it a point to stay updated and cheer them on from a distance. His children were his life. He did everything within his power to help them to the best of his ability that stretched out to his children’s significant others, and close friends and so forth. Much like his children quiet Travis would give you the shirt off his back and shoes off his feet if he had seen the need he'd do everything in his capabilities to try and fill the need. You see Travis was dealt a lot of hardships in life much like many of us and also like many of us he created a lot of circumstantial hardships. Though he may not have had peace for many years he never stopped thinking of others and considering ways to help. He understood the struggle and pain many people face which gave him a heart of compassion that never ceased. After losing his children he drew closer to those who were still left, understanding how detrimentally fickle life can be. No parent should have to face surpassing their children in life. It took a heavy toll on him, yet it brought him back closer to the Lord in his last years on this earth, a faith that laid stagnant in him for years. But he seemed to pass on his faith without fully knowing each one of his children came to the Lord shortly before passing.  It is written " well done good and faithful servant ". The lord gives us free will. Hopeful each one of us will enter into his body and become one with the Lord, " he is patient with us in hopes that we all may enter into the kingdom " 

" If I ever got lost, could I be found? if I never knew grave sin could I ever know deep redemption salvation and grace ? " 

Travis will have a funeral service Saturday March 2nd from 1-3 pm

Location :  16480 40 Ave.
