He loved to grow food for his family and put great care into his garden. Travis was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, fishing, and walking his dogs. One of Travis’ favorite programs was “Top Gear”. In his younger days he relished drag racing and took great pride in restoring a turbo Fox Body Mustang.

Travis served as a combat medic in the US Army for six years and was lauded by his peers for his leadership prowess and deep medical knowledge. He served in Iraq with the Charlie Company 204th BSB 2/4 Infantry Division. During this time, Travis provided aid to countless people and participated in events such as the protective detail during the first Iraqi election. He was most proud of his lifesaving talents and the effect his skills had on civilians and his military peers.

He is survived by his wife Heather Sowers; daughters Jordan and Kamryn Lista; his brother Steve Sowers and sister Robin Groves. Travis will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and those who knew him even fleetingly. He touched many lives, lived and loved deeply. His life and passing made waves, and those ripples will continue to shape the course of those who loved him.

You will be forever missed, but never forgotten my friend and brother. Our shared memories growing up together, whether pulling weeds in the garden, our adventures catching snapping turtles in creeks, fishing in farm ponds, or skipping like a stone across water on a snowmobile on a cold, clear night in a vast snow covered field, I will treasure always. It was a privilege to have that time with you, peace be with you, brother.
