Travis R MEYER
9 diciembre , 1958 – 24 marzo , 2020
Travis Ray Meyer, a loving husband, father, Papa, brother, and friend passed away unexpectedly on March 24, 2020, at the age of 61, in Houston, Tx.
Travis was born on December 9, 1958, in Childress, Texas to John and Adela Meyer. He was raised in the small southwest Texas town of Brackettville. His childhood was full of mischief and adventure. Though Travis was often in trouble for anything that went wrong or broke, he also was responsible for some of the best memories. Once, after a long, hard rain, Travis baptized his siblings in the drainage ditch. Before you knew it, there was a line of about a dozen other neighborhood kids waiting for their turn. He was actually fantastic entertainment for the neighborhood in many ways. He belted out Elvis songs from the treetops and the rooftop of the shed in the backyard, and raced wagons against the neighbor boys. As a teenager, Travis began his school day howling at the entrance of the high school. Everyone knew that howl.
After graduation, Travis moved to Houston, Texas where he dedicated himself to the Oil and Gas industry for the next 44 years. During his career, he worked in Shipping/Receiving, Quality Management and Inventory Management. Travis grew to obtain an immense amount of expertise in his field. Though his road to success was obtained through his own hustle and hunger, he was happy to share his knowledge with his co-workers. He was a smart man and loved the work he did. His integrity spoke for itself. He valued all that was honest, true, noble, trustworthy, kind and right, ahead of personal gain. Because of this, he met a lot of people throughout his career who became lifelong friends.
Travis loved music. He wasn’t shy and would announce his presence by belting opera as he walked into the room. And, when the slightest beat of a song was within earshot, he was dancing. He pulled every drop of joy from music and showered it on those around him. He was the life of the party-- even if the party was just dancing with his wife, Sue, alone in the kitchen of their home.
His most favorite moments were those spent playing with his kids and grandkids. Many a night Travis would play basketball with his kids in the driveway. The occasional “stuff” was met by the encouragement to take the shot from “way downtown.” He was tough, serious, and pushed them to be better, but he was also goofy and fun. He was also incredibly selfless. Though it made him sick as a dog, he took Logan fishing offshore for the first time to share the experience with him. He was everything that a great dad is or could be. Travis unconditionally loved his wife, children and grandchildren. He was proud of each one and spoke often about them to friends.
Travis is survived by his wife, Sue Meyer, his daughters Lindsey Nichols and Lauren (David) Rowe, his son Logan Meyer, eleven of his siblings; John (Jessie) Meyer, Iris (Claudio) Parras, Wayne Meyer, Joe Henry (Mona) Meyer, David (Anabelle) Meyer, Mary Jane (Duke) Meek, August (Dianna) Meyer, Velma (Tony) Moreno, Betty (Joey) Dauzat, Maxine (Vance) Bonner, Thomas (Kelley) Meyer, Brother-in-laws Mike (Nora) Therrell, Mark Therrell, three grandchildren, Robert Rodriguez, Jeslynn Villafranco and Wesley Rowe. Along with numerous nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his mother, Adela Meyer, Father, John Meyer, brother, Gilbert Meyer, mother-in-law, Betty Therrell, and father-in-law, John Therrell, and brother-in-law, David Therrell

My heartfelt condolences to his family. I knew the young Travis. We were classmates. I need to share the following about Travis. I've never forgotten a day in Mr Schermerhorn's science class. Travis and I were partnered up in class. That particular day we were going to find out our blood type. Mr. Schermerhorn passed out the kits and was giving the instructions. And if you knew Travis you know by now what he did next. Yes, he's not listening to the instructions. Tells me; "give me your finger". Me obediently (haha) follow his game. He pokes my finger!!! Of course I scream!!! Needless to say we got in trouble. He more than me because of course I was the good, quite student. (smiling)
